Day by day

Day 1 : San Cristobal Island: El Junco Lagoon

You will be taken to San Cristobal Airport.

El Junco Lagoon

Follow the path up to the El Junco Lagoon, a crater lake in the highlands on San Cristobal Island. You will have spectacular views of the island from this point. Also, you might see frigate birds swimming and bathing in crystal clear waters below.
Day 2 : North Seymour Island & Santa Cruz Island: Dragon Hill

North Seymour Island

North Seymour Island is named after Lord Hugh Seymour (a senior British Royal Navy officer). You can find a wide variety of birds as you walk among the bushy, low vegetation, including swallow-tailed gulls, blue-footed bobies, and frigate birds.

Keep an eye out for the bright red chests of male frigates that are used to attract a mate.

Santa Cruz Island: Dragon Hill

Dragon Hill is the name of the large number of Galapagos Land Iguanas who have made this their home.

These amazing creatures, which resemble miniature dragons, will be encountered as you stroll along the coast and through the Palo Santo forests.

This is a great place to snorkel, as coral attracts many colourful fish very close to the shoreline.
