Overview Itinerary Pricing


In this 6-day itinerary, you will visit 3 islands: Santa Cruz, Isabela, and 1 uninhabited island.

Island hopping allows visitors to experience much of the best areas of the islands while sleeping in well-appointed lodges and transferring between islands during the day on a smaller boat.

You can start on any day of the year, and you can buy your own Galapagos flights. We offer itineraries for any length of time. Island hopping itineraries are also great choices for visitors who wish to combine diving days with classic wildlife tours.
