9 DAYS GALAPAGOS LUXURY CRUISE

Quito & Galapagos Islands

Cruise, Nature & Wildlife

Highlights

  • Intimate cruise ships to explore the Galapagos Islands, with the newly launched Silversea Origin, the most luxurious ship in Galapagos.

Ecuador is perhaps most famed for her Galapagos Islands, located more than 920km away from the mainland in the Pacific Ocean. 

This luxury program takes you on a seven days cruise around the Galapagos Islands for the most bizarre and amazing wildlife encounters – swim with sea lions and penguins, stroll past a giant tortoise, observes a blue footed booby…. The scenery is also out of this world – barren and hauntingly beautiful. 

There are many ways to explore the islands and we have carefully chosen the voyages for your optimal experience and comfort.

Breakfast & Lunch included

Lying 2,800m above sea level at the foot of the Pichincha Volcano, we devote the day to explore the urban jewels of historic Quito (UNESCO). One of the largest and best-preserved colonial cities in South America, your tour of historic Quito will end with a birds-eye view of the city from the panoramic “Virgin of Quito” monument atop El Panecillo Hill. On a clear day, you can see the “Volcano Avenue” – two parallel mountain ranges containing eight of the country’s ten highest peaks. 

In the afternoon, we head out to Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the World), the monument on equator that was built to commemorate the French scientists who made history by determining the shape of the planet thanks to their studies at this location in the 1830s. Continue to the Intiñan Solar Museum, where you will have the opportunity to perform various unusual experiments like balancing an egg on a nail, losing weight in a second, or straddling the equatorial line that separates the two hemispheres.

Day 04 Cruising Galapagos Island

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included

A new day in the Galapagos begins its wildlife symphony. Giant tortoises grunt in distant highlands. Prehistoric marine iguanas spit their salty spray. Storm petrels “walk” across its surface and graceful red-billed tropicbirds screech across the sky. Flightless cormorants and penguins dart through the waters. With a Galapagos naturalist at our side, we set out each day in the early morning and afternoon, to remarkable ecosystems where the wildlife is most abundant and active. Inching our way past lounging iguanas and sea lions, scouting for breaching whales offshore and pink flamingos at hidden lagoons, we marvel at the inspirational Galapagos creatures on these desolate volcanic isles much as Charles Darwin did two centuries ago. The detailed daily itinerary depends on the cruise selected.

Other than the amazing wildlife, the Galapagos Islands’ landscape is also diverse. Born from fiery volcanoes deep in the Pacific Ocean, the region is constantly changing. White sandy beach with azure sea, striking ruggedness from the lava fields, mangrove lagoons and cactus forests are some of the stunning landscape you will come across.
