The Galapagos Islands: July 19-26, 2022

The Galapagos Islands, July 19 - 26, 2022

With a Pre-tour to Mashpi Lodge and a Post-tour to Machu Picchu & the Sacred Valley

Designated the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978 and described as a “unique living museum and showcase of evolution”, the Galapagos Islands is a magical destination to be enjoyed, experienced, and explored by travelers of all ages. The islands are home to a fascinating array of wildlife inhabiting an unspoiled ecosystem in one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet.

This exciting journey features a day of guided touring in Quito plus an intimate cruise through the archipelago with up-close access to endemic species. Expert naturalists guide you through the wonders of this national park, whale sanctuary, and marine reserve.

Our home for our cruise is the Isabela II, a 20-cabin expedition ship. Sailing by small ship allows for flexibility in the itinerary to maximize wildlife viewing, as well as access to exclusive ports that larger ships cannot.
