Opportunity for whale-watching from Moreno Point to Elizabeth Bay, and from Tagus Cove to Espinosa Point.

Fernandina Island is the youngest island of the Galapagos and offers beautiful volcanic landscapes; it is probably the only island in the world completely free of introduced species.

Espinosa Point offers a nice walk with the largest marine iguana of the Galapagos, a sea lion colony and tidal pools.

Puerto Villamil on Isabela Island is one of the few inhabited areas of the Galapagos; visit Sierra Negra and a giant tortoise breeding center, with a chance to see flamingos at a lagoon in town.

Opportunity to spend time with Galapagueños and learn about life in the Islands.

Tagus Cove offers a visit to Darwin Lake with a medium intensity walk. Great place for deep-water snorkeling with sea turtles and penguins, as well as a dinghy ride to observe sea birds.

Humedales in Puerto Villamil are the best sites in the entire archipelago to observe migratory birds to possibly find more than 20 species in a single spot.

Punta Moreno has a panoramic view of three volcanoes, the most active of the Galapagos: Sierra Negra, Cerro Azul of Isabela Island and La Cumbre of Fernandina Island.

At Charles Darwin Research Station we will meet Lonesome George and learn about the efforts that have been done to restore the tortoise populations in the islands.

In South Plaza there are two species of iguanas: land & marine, a colony of Swallow-tailed Gulls and sea lions. Beautiful views of nearby cactus forests.

Chance to see the Galapagos hybrid iguana, unique in the world.

Hiking in Santa Fe can be either intermediate or high intensity. Special sighting opportunities include the endemic Santa Fe land iguana, the tallest cactus species, and a Palo Santo forest.

Rábida is a red sand beach with a large sea lion colony, Palo Santo forest and a unique type of cactus. This is the only place where nine species of Darwin’s finches can be seen, mockingbirds and beautiful views from the highest spot.

Daphne is an eroded tuff cone that was created by successive volcanic activity. A prime opportunity to find Blue-footed Boobies, Nazca Boobies, Red-billed Tropicbirds, Swallow-tailed Gulls, Brown Noddies.
