Galapagos Island Hopping | 8 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. On San Cristobal, a visit to the Galapaguera Breeding centre is a must and you can learn more about the giant Galapagos tortoise and their habitat. Kicker Rock is one of the best places to snorkel in the archipelago. At Punta Pitt you will be able to observe red-footed boobies, which can only be seen in very few locations. Visit Isabela and hike to the crater of Sierra Negra, you will be impressed by the view! Learn more about the different life zones of Santa Cruz during a visit to the highlands. Enjoy a day trip to some of the smaller islands near Santa Cruz.
You will leave the Galapagos with fantastic memories who will last a lifetime.
Viva's Best Bits...
Island hopping offers a great opportunity to explore the Galapagos during the day, and to stay on dry land at night.
"Watch the sleepy sea lions in the white sand or you may encounter them during a snorkelling trip. They are curious animals and will come up-close to check you out." Pia, Team Viva
Kicker Rock, or Sleepy Lion, is a volcanic cone eroded by the sea across hundreds of years. But even more exciting then the rock is the amazing underwater world! Snorkel with sea turtles, colourful reef fish, rays, sharks, sea lions and many more.
