From Quito on the mainland you fly to Baltra in the Galapagos. From here you visit Santa Cruz for an excellent introduction to the islands’ conservation projects at the Charles Darwin Research Centre. It is all about the giant tortoise here – get up close to them at the centre then head into the volcanic scenery of the highlands with its eerie lava tunnels and perhaps spot tortoise in the wild. Cruise to Isabela, the largest island and home to active volcanoes, flamingos and an array of sea life. Fernandina, Punta Espinoza and Bahia Urbina bring land and marine iguanas, lava cactus, cormorants and more giant tortoise. A day on Santiago Island sees you visiting the black sand beach of Puerto Egas for hundreds of fur seals as well as Espumilla Beach, an important nesting site for sea turtles. Stop at Daphne Island to view masked boobies and frigatebirds before returning to Baltra and Quito. A true wildlife adventure! (Was Galapagos Adventure)
