Day by day

Day 1 : San Cristobal Island: Puerto Baquerizo Moreno airport & Galapagos Tortoise Breeding Center

You will be taken to San Cristobal Airport.

David Rodriguez Breeding Center

Visit the David Rodriguez Breeding Centre to learn more about the evolution and origin of the giant tortoise. It also explains why this center is so important in protecting the future of these amazing creatures.

You can walk along the trails and see the baby tortoises being raised in semi-natural conditions. This is a great example of the dedication the Galapagos people have to conserving the wildlife that makes them so special.

Day 2 : Española Island: Suarez Point, Gardner Bay & Osborn Islets

Suarez Point

Suarez Point is a rich habitat for wildlife. You can explore it by walking the circular trail. This unforgettable walk will take visitors past large nesting areas of blue-footed and nazca boobies, and mockingbirds.

The beautiful waved albatross are also a unique feature of Espanola Island. They can be seen majestically leaping out over the ocean from the cliffs or the green and red marine iguanas.

One of the most striking geological highlights is a series of blow holes that can shoot water 25m up into the air.

Gardner Bay, Gardner, and Osborn Islets

Gardner Bay's pristine, white sandy beach is perfect for relaxing. Paddle boarding or kayaking are great ways to see the many waved albatross that use the beach as a breeding ground.

You can snorkel with young sea lions in the Gardner and Osborn Islets by taking a short panga ride.
