Quito and Galapagos
Quito and Galapagos OverviewExplore the city of Quito before heading off to Galapagos Islands for an unforgettable wildlife cruise.
If you just want a really good wildlife cruise in the Galapagos Islands, without much time on mainland Ecuador, this is perfect for you.
We have chosen to price this holiday based on a yacht called the Beluga, which is a superior tourist class yacht, however we can swap this yacht for a different one of your choice without any problem. There is a big choice of yachts on Tribes website to choose from.
Ecuador is a long way to come from Europe though, so a couple of days here is worth it before you head off to the islands. Flying about 4 hours from Quito to the Galapagos, you then join your chosen yacht for your week cruise.
The islands are of course a unique wildlife spectacle, with all manner of birds, mammals and reptiles which have almost no fear of man. Take walks on the islands, swim with sea lions, meet giant tortoises, watch the courting displays of waved albatrosses at close range … really, where else is there like it? Nowhere.
