Trip Length 11 days

From $7,995

  • Experience the Enchanted Islands as you sail onboard the elegant and luxurious Integrity yacht—this is Galápagos cruising at its finest!
  • Anchor at nature’s doorstep and encounter incredible endemic wildlife, including giant tortoises, marine iguanas, penguins, and more, with the full leadership of certified Class III naturalists
  • Hike, snorkel and kayak among exquisite volcanic landscapes in one of the world’s top nature destinations, while our specialist yacht crew and dedicated in-country staff attend to your every need

A Galápagos luxury travel experience like no other. Journey back in time for a voyage that will forever change the way you view life on this planet. You'll hike, swim, snorkel and meander among birds and animals that have no fear of you, that return your curiosity as you enter their world. Come home renewed! Traveling aboard the finest Galápagos yacht, you'll cruise two of the best itineraries. One focuses more on the western islands with visits on Floreana, Isabela and Fernandina; the other focuses on the eastern islands with visits to Española, San Cristobal and Genovesa. Start your Galápagos luxury travel experience with an overnight stay on Santa Cruz Island. Visit the Darwin Research Station and the Santa Cruz Highlands before boarding your yacht so you can have an entire extra day to spend at visitor sites out in the islands.

Day 1: Arrive in Quito, Ecuador, and explore its colonial heart

Welcome to the historic city of Quito, the capital of Ecuador! An MTS representative will meet you outside customs at the airport and escort you to your five-star hotel, while briefing you en route on immediate arrangements and introducing you to Ecuador. The drive takes you along a scenic route up to over 9,200 feet in altitude, following part of the route that the early Spanish conquistadors used when first traveling here to establish the city as a Spanish territory in 1534. Just before reaching the city, you’ll wind up the switchbacks of the ancient neighborhood of Guapulo, passing colorful graffiti and murals to the high plateau of Quito. The hotel staff will greet you with a hot towel and a cool glass of fresh juice to refresh you upon arrival. After settling in, the rest of the day is free unwind, take advantage of the pool’s spa services or begin your exploration of this dynamic city.

  • Accommodation:Hilton Colon

Day 2: To the Galapagos—Santa Cruz Island

Transfer to the airport for an early morning flight to Baltra, Galapagos. Upon arrival, we cross the Itabaca channel to the Island of Santa Cruz where our Galapagos experience commences with a visit to the highlands.

We'll have lunch then explore the Santa Cruz highlands to view endemic Galapagos plant species and visit lava tubes and sinkholes. We'll hike through tall grasses among the grazing tortoises.

Depending on the season, we will either be staying in the highlands at Galapagos Safari Camp or the Royal Palm Hotel or along the coast at Finch Bay EcoLodge or Angermeyer Point.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Royal Palm Hotel

Day 3: Puerto Ayora, Darwin Station, board our yacht

We stroll through the town of Puerto Ayora to the Charles Darwin Research Station, where we learn about conservation issues and the tortoise and iguana hatching and rearing programs. We'll even get to view some of the tiny hatchlings. Afterwards we lunch in Puerto Ayora. We board Integrity mid to late afternoon in Academy Bay.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 4: Española Island

AM — Gardner Bay — You’ll stroll along a magnificent white sand beach where sea lions lounge, marine turtles nest, and the curious Española mockingbirds follow our every footstep.  You can take a brief swim on the beach or wait for an amazing snorkel in the company of schools of colorful fish, turtles, sea lions, and possibly small sharks along the underwater cliffs of Gardener-by-Española, a small satellite islet.

PM — Punta Suárez — This is one of the Galápagos’ most famed visitor sites.  You’ll be dazzled by spectacular cliff views of pounding surf and seemingly unlimited populations of an amazing variety of seabirds.  Brightly colored marine iguanas and the largest lava lizards of Galápagos frequent the coastline and rest on the trail.  From the cliff top you’ll watch a blowhole spray water 30 meters in the air.  Española is the only island where you’ll see waved albatrosses and possibly observe their fascinating mating dance.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 5: San Cristóbal Island

AM — Punta Pitt — Disembarking onto the small beach, visitors are confronted by the strong stench and cacophony of barking sea lions.  This is a bachelor colony, and most are exhausted from fighting and mating.  A steep gully leads up the cliff to a breeding ground for Boobies of all three varieties: Red-footed, Blue-footed and Nazca.  This is the only place in the Galápagos where you can see all three species nesting together.  Two species of frigatebirds are also present, as are Swallow-tailed Gulls and Storm Petrels.  The trail across the Punta Pitt site offers a closer look at the hardy vegetation that manages to thrive in this volcanic wasteland.  From Saltbush and spiny shrubs next to the beach, the trail leads up to an area of Palo Santo trees, big yellow-green shrubs, tiny cacti and, in the dry season, carpets of red Vesuvius.

PM — Cerro Brujo & Kicker Rock — A short panga ride along the cliffs of Cerro Brujo will be followed by a visit to the lovely coral sand beach, frequented by waders and migrant birds.  Snorkelers will see an amazing array of sea life at Kicker Rock, often including manta rays, sea turtles, and sharks.  Non-snorkelers will enjoy a cruise around the base of dramatic Kicker Rock, a 500 m vertical tuff cone.  The orange glow on the rock at sunset is one of the more dramatic sights in all of Galápagos.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 6: Santa Fé and South Plaza Islands

AM — Santa Fé — After landing on a white beach usually covered with sea lions, you’ll walk into a giant opuntia cactus grove where the prickly pear cactus are up to 16 feet high.  You’ll also have the opportunity to see the endemic land iguanas, the largest of the Galápagos land iguanas.  The tallest opuntia and the largest land iguana evolved together The land visit will be followed by snorkeling and/or kayaking in the turquoise waters of the bay, full of sea lions, rays, urchins, eels, and fish of all colors.

PM — South Plaza — You will see another species of Galápagos land iguana as well as cactus finches.  Both North and South Plazas were formed by geological uplift and tilt to the north, with cliffs on their southern coasts.  On small islands like this, terrestrial and marine species interact more than on the larger islands, and the occasional hybrid iguana (land and marine) with its “zebra-like” stripes can often be observed.  The south-facing cliffs swarm with a myriad of bird species. Bachelor sea lions climb steep cliffs in the late afternoon to spend nights away from the larger dominant bulls.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 7: Genovesa Island

AM — Darwin Beach — At the north side of Darwin Bay, this beach was formed by the rim of a sunken crater.  Red mangroves along the hiking trail provide habitat for yellow warblers, yellow-crowned night herons, and pintail ducks.  The highlight of this site is the incredible abundance of Red-footed Boobies, Great Frigatebirds, Swallow-tailed Gulls, and Yellow-crowned Night Herons.  Although the most abundant booby in the islands, this is one of the few places visitors can observe Red-footed Boobies.

PM — Prince Phillip’s Steps — While riding in a panga along the base of the eastern cliffs of Darwin Bay, you’ll scour the cliff crevices for all kinds of animal life.  You’ll come to a rockfall that forms a natural staircase up the cliffs, known as Prince Phillip’s Steps or the “Stairway to Seabird Heaven.”  You’ll walk through massive colonies of Red-footed and Nazca Boobies and an extraordinary Palo Santo forest on the way to a lava ridge where thousands of storm petrels dart about while Short-eared Owls stalk them for prey.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 8: Santiago and Bartolomé Islands

AM — Sullivan Bay (Santiago) — Start the morning with a walk across a recent lava flow and view its beautiful structural characteristics.  Formed in the second half of the 19th Century, the flow is too young for much plant or animal life.  It is the lava itself and the contrasting black pahoehoe flow and the reddish-yellow tuff cones that are the stars of this visit.  The colors and shapes of the lava are fantastic for photos.

PM — Bartolomé — Arguably the most recognized landmark in Galápagos, Pinnacle Rock juts straight out of Bartolomé’s northern bay. Snorkeling in the bay provides visitors with a chance to swim with Galapagos Penguins.  Climbing up the 600-m trail to the top of the island provides spectacular views of Pinnacle Rock, Santiago Island, and Daphne Major and Minor.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 9: Rábida and Sombrero Chino Islands

AM — Rábida — You’ll land at Red Beach where wading birds and ghost crabs dot the sand.  Behind the beach is a saltwater lagoon where Pintail ducks and Common Stilts are frequently seen along with a group of bachelor sea lions.  Brown pelicans nest in the nearby salt brush.  A short trail inland provides a chance to observe finches, Galápagos Doves, Yellow Warblers, and mockingbirds, as well as the occasional snake.

PM — Sombrero Chino — The turquoise waters near Sombrero Chino provide one of our best opportunities to see Galápagos Penguins.  A panga ride in search of wildlife is followed by a snorkel that often includes sharks, sea lions, penguins, and rays.  You will land at a beautiful white sand beach for a short walk along a trail that meanders over varying types of lava.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Integrity Yacht

Day 10: Baltra Island- Return to Quito

This morning, we’ll have a leisurely breakfast on board, before saying goodbye to the yacht crew and returning by panga to Baltra for our flights back to Quito. Today is a perfect transition day for finding our land legs again after being out to sea for a week. Once back in Quito, an MTS representative will meet us and transfer us to our hotel, where we’ll bid our guide and fellow travelers a fond adios. We should arrive at the hotel around 3:30pm, allowing us a little extra time this afternoon for last-minute souvenir shopping, local sightseeing or some well-deserved rest. Dinner is on your own tonight.

  • Breakfast/Lunch
  • Accommodation:Hilton Colon

Day 11: Bid farewell to Ecuador

After another fabulous breakfast at the hotell, our representative can pick you up and transfer you to the airport for your flight home, or you may elect to join one of our extensions in Ecuador or Peru.
