Ecuador Mainland & the Galápagos Islands
If you’re already exploring Ecuador on terra firma you’re this close to the eco-lover’s paradise: the Galápagos, so we’ve brought both together in one 14-day tour. Start with all the on-land highlights like the Amazon, the stunning landscapes in the Ecuadorian highlands, and get an unforgettable experience staying right in the Amazon jungle. Experience the Galápagos aboard the Xavier III where comfy cabins, giant tortoises, and sea lions will have you wanting to jump ship – but only to go snorkelling, of course.
