Galapagos Island hopping | 5 days
Island hopping packages offer you the unique opportunity to explore the islands of the Galapagos while spending each night on land. These are generally more economical than cruises while still offering fantastic wildlife interaction.
You have options of visiting different islands, taking part in different activities and choosing from different hotel standards. During the day tours you will enjoy snorkelling with colourful fish and playful sea lions, walking over lava fields and watch out for iguanas and lava lizards. A visit to the Charles Darwin Breeding centre is a must and you can learn more about the giant Galapagos tortoise and their habitat. Meet the blue footed boobies and the magnificent frigate birds on North Seymour. The scenery is spectacular from the viewpoint on Bartolome Island and you will also see the famous Pinnacle Rock. If you decide to visit Santa Fe then you will be on one of the oldest islands of the archipelago. White sand and black lava are a beautiful contrast and make the Plazas island special, it is also a wonderful spot for snorkelling. Isabela offers a longer hike to the top of the Sierra Negra volcano, or you may decide to take a boat and snorkelling trip instead.
If 5 days are not enough, we offer longer itineraries as well.
Viva's Best Bits...
"Visit the highlands in Santa Cruz where you will see the giant Galapagos tortoise. You will also learn more about their fascinating habitat at the Charles Darwin station. A visit not to be missed." Rachel, Team Viva
Watch sea lions play in the sand or even better experience their curiosity close up while you are snorkelling.
Island hopping offers a great opportunity to explore the Galapagos during the day, and to stay on dry land at night.
