Quito and Galapagos

Explore Ecuador's capital city and the wonders of the Galapagos Islands on this amazing trip.

10 days from £4, 550pp plus international flights.

Explore the city of Quito before heading off to Galapagos Islands for an unforgettable wildlife cruise.

  • Relax in colonial Quito, with a guided tour
  • Cruise the Galapagos Islands for 7 nights
  • Small friendly motor sailing yacht
  • Option to upgrade to more luxurious yacht
  • Swim and snorkel, often with curious seals!

If it's your dream to see the stunning and unique Galapagos Islands, but you don't really have time to see much of mainland Ecuador, this is the right trip for you.

It's nice to see a bit of Quito since you've come all this way, so the first couple of days are spent discovering this capital. Then you fly off to the Galapagos Islands which you reach within about 4 hours.

Joining your yacht, you set off to explore the unique and captivating wildlife of this incredible archipelago. Meeting blue-footed boobies, marvelling at the displays of magnificent frigatebirds, swimming with sealions, being roundly ignored by marine iguanas, passing the time of day with an ancient giant tortoise ... the Galapagos Islands really are like nowhere else on earth.
