Meet giant tortoises, immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the stunning beaches of Santa Cruz on this four-day Galapagos Islands adventure.
Galapagos Islands 4-Day Tour Package Itinerary
Day 1: Isla Baltra – Isla Santa Cruz
On arrival into Seymour Airport on Isla Baltra, you'll be picked up and taken to the port located on the south of the island, where you'll take a ferry to Santa Cruz Island. The crossing on the Itabaca Canal, which takes just 10 minutes, will give you your first glimpse of the coastal landscapes of the Galapagos archipelago. The intense turquoise of the sea makes the beautiful beaches seem like they're out of a dream.
Back on dry land, you'll begin exploring the northern part of the isle of Santa Cruz, home to spectacular lava tunnels. You'll stop at the Galapagos tortoise reserve, where you'll get to meet these enormous animals, emblematic of the archipelago, in one of only two places in the world to which they are native.
Continue your tour around Santa Cruz, visiting the Charles Darwin Research Station. His work has become a worldwide reference in science and natural history, but do you know everything about the British naturalist's travels to the Galapagos Islands? Your guide will reveal the most curious anecdotes.
At the end of your first day, you'll be taken to your hotel on the island's capital: Puerto Ayora.
Day 2: Puerto Ayora – Tortuga Bay – Tunnel of Love – Puerto Ayora
After an energising breakfast at your hotel, you'll set off on a short trek. After approximately 40 minutes walk, you'll reach a place well worth the exertion: the Tortuga Bay beach, one of the most beautiful spots on the archipelago. Here, you'll have free time to relax, sunbathe and swim on Santa Cruz's paradise coastline.
You'll spend the afternoon seeing Bahía Tortuga from a different perspective, cruising around the bay in a yacht. The boat trip will take you to a tiny island inhabited with adorable sea lions and you'll also visit the Tunnel of Love, a natural rock formation whose name isn't an accident...
Following your yacht cruise, you'll head back to Puerto Ayora where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
Important: this activity is only available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Day 3: Puerto Ayora
Following breakfast at your hotel, you'll have the whole of your third day free to explore everything Santa Cruz has to offer at your own pace.
Day 4: Puerto Ayora – Isla Baltra
Day four of your tour will see you eating an early breakfast before being taken to the north of Santa Cruz, where you'll visit a coffee plantation. After learning all about the coffee production process, you'll head over to the Itabaca Canal port. Here, you'll hop aboard the ferry to Baltra Island, where you'll be taken to the airport after a fantastic four days exploring the Galapagos archipelago.
