Quito – Spa Welcomes in Quito
Quito provides a gentle introduction to Ecuador, the capital city elegantly stretching out across a volcano-clad valley. An overnight on the mainland is inevitable, as domestic flights to the islands leave early in the morning. It's an easy layover; city lights glisten from your five-star hotel on the hill, a traditional Ecuadorian dinner is served in the hotel's restaurant, and there's a spa to soothe any travel aches. You'll be picked up at the airport and transferred to a hotel on the edge of the city. Rest and Relax. The Galapagos adventure starts tomorrow. Consider learning more about your Galapagos travel agencies that will help you craft your personally memorable and perfect itinerary.

The Galapagos archipelago unveils nature at its most untamed and unadulterated, a series of rugged volcanic islands standing isolated amidst Pacific waves. They're raw and mystical, constantly providing surprises and breathtaking sites; the breeding grounds for a million seabirds, sea lions bathing on white sand, whales cruising past penguins. As the natural history cascades across volcanic cliffs, there's sometimes too much to take in. Stop. Relax. Take your time. With an all-inclusive Galapagos Islands cruise and tour, you only need to focus on the wildlife and wild sights; everything else is arranged by a discreet and experienced team of local experts. This Galapagos vacations arrangement includes all the activities and excursions, transfers, meals, and many drinks. And these aren’t cold buffets and mass group excursions. Chefs concoct sumptuous a la carte menus; excursions offer near-exclusive access to stunning wildlife sites, and there's always a private place to watch the islands lazily drift by.
After a night in Quito, the Galapagos itinerary starts with eight days of all-inclusive cruising on a small luxury yacht. You'll visit the south, central, and northern parts of the archipelago, including world-renowned sites like Genovesa, North Seymour, and Punta Cormorant. Varied excursions add further angles to the immersion experience, allowing you to kayak with sea lions, walk across red volcanic remnants, and safely snorkel into a marine world of reef sharks and manta rays. Sip drinks as sunsets paint the sky, and lounge in tranquility as you cruise through the Pacific. For these eight days, there's hardly another boat in sight and your small group has private access to each of the phenomenal wildlife sites. With a capacity of just 20, the yacht ensures an intimate experience with all of the extravagant extras.
Swap the sea legs for land legs by completing the all-inclusive tour with three nights on Isabela Island in the Western Galapagos. A beautiful ecolodge stands above white sand and calm waters, offering continual views of playful sea lions and diving sea birds. Rest on your balcony and spend three elegant days in this remote corner of the archipelago. Like the cruise, all meals are included and you enjoy morning coffee with views of the migration routes of whales. Daily activities showcase the youthful volcanic splendor of Isabela, including a hike to the world's second largest crater and a journey to the magnificent lava arches of Tintoreras. This is a fully all-inclusive tour, allowing you to revel in the diversity of the Galapagos, discover all four regions of the archipelago, and experience the many ways in which it can be explored. So just sit back and enjoy the show.
