Start your journey with a stay in Quito. The town was an important Inca city when the Spanish first arrived in the 16th century and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1978. Your private guide will bring you on a fascinating tour of the town. Visit the renowned La Compañía Church, with its ornate gold leaf interior, see the open plaza and impressive church of San Francisco, built in the 16th century by the Indians.

Next, we’ll take you to the Middle of the World. Just 30km north of Quito stands the monument marking the Equatorial Line as established by the 18th-century expedition of the French Geodesic Mission. You’ll have the chance to stand on both hemispheres simultaneously or on top of the Equatorial Line. Climb to the top of the monument for a breath-taking view of the Andes.

You’ll transfer to the Galápagos by plane and board the luxurious Trimaran Camila. Upon arrival, the guide and crew will greet you and show you to your stateroom before you set sail. A stay on this trimaran is the perfect way to explore the Galápagos and we will make sure your stay is both thrilling and comfortable.

Stop at Sullivan Bay. Located just southeast of Santiago Island, the bay has an interesting lava field and you will have the chance to enjoy the geologically young lava field with your guide. Visit Isabela Island, the largest of all the Galápagos Islands. Take your panga to Vicente Roca Point, comprised of two separate caves. This bay is perfect for snorkelling and spotting sea turtles, seahorses and the magnificent mola-mola sunfish.

You’ll cruise to Tagus Cove, a historical pirate hideaway located on the western shores of Isabela Island. Discover this historic site with your guide and enjoy exploring what was left behind by the pirates and sailors in the 1800s. The crew of anchored ships were known to carve the ship’s name into the cliff that surrounds the cove.

Urban Bay is located on the southeast side of Alcedo volcano on Isabela Island. Once lying on the ocean floor, volcanic activity raised this now visible bay which today is occupied by sea lions, land iguanas and flightless cormorants. Relax and spend some time on the beach as you admire the array of wildlife and stunning scenery.

You’ll visit the beautiful rocky shores of Moreno Point. Known as a birders delight it’s home to a variety of bird species, including great blue herons. The main attraction of Moreno Point are the coastal lagoons where you’ll see white-tipped reef sharks resting peacefully in the shallow waters. The panoramic views of Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul volcanoes are also not to be missed.

South Plazas Island is a small island formed by rising lava. The island is home to one of the largest sea lion colonies and colourful land iguanas. There are a variety of plant species on the island, with the most characteristic being the Sesuvium that turns bright red during the dry season.
