Galápagos Island Hopping

7 days,Santa Cruz to Santa Cruz

Hike up Sierra Negra Volcano – the second-largest volcanic crater in the world – and walk on the lava fields, observe flamingos at an isolated lagoon, be amazed at the unique wildlife of the Galápagos.

Looking for more than a cruise to the islands? A week of touring the less-explored parts of the Galápagos Islands is the answer. We’ll start in Santa Cruz, then head to Floreana to stay on a part of the island that sees less visitors than the rest. From there it’s on to Isabela for a few days of hiking, snorkelling and visiting the island’s main highlights. Top that off with a hike up Sierra Negra Volcano – the second-largest volcanic crater in the world – along with the Galápagos’ typical array of exotic wildlife and prepare to be amazed.
