Details of Explore the Galapagos Islands with Andean Trails, Quito, Ecuador Wildlife & Safari Tours Details for Explore the Galapagos Islands with Andean Trails


Take an active holiday on the Galapagos Islands - snorkel, bike, hike volcanos and sea kayak on our Galapagos adventure holiday.

This carefully planned multi-activity tour is perfect for lovers of outdoor adventure.

We combine snorkelling, biking, trekking, sea kayaking and diving in a unique itinerary taking in the highlights of these magical islands.

Whether you are snorkelling with playful sea lions, watching sharks and giant manta rays, or just enjoying the company of the Giant Galapagos Tortoise, you will go home with memories that will last a lifetime.

The trip is a great blend of activity, relaxation and enjoyment. As well as the wildlife, by staying on the islands you get a feel of the culture of the people who live on the Galapagos.

You are sped from highlight to highlight in our fast boat, Christine, minimising time on the water to help you get the most from your time on the Galapagos.

Typical Day

Your days begin after breakfast, when your guide will explain the day's activities and options. Evenings offer you the chances to explore the island's cafes and restaurants.

Since each island has its own unique landscape and diverse species of animal and plant life, every day is a new adventure.

You may spend the morning snorkelling with sea lions, and the afternoon atop a volcano. There aere kayaking options, beachfront strolls and time built in to hunt out souvenirs too.

Age range, type of group

This trip is perfect for almost everyone.

Children aged 10 upwards are welcome, and we have taken people aged up to 75 on the trip.

There is usually a mix of independent travellers, couples, friends and honeymooners. If you like to be active and enjoy nature, then people on the trip will be like-minded as we attract a great crowd.

Sleeping and meals

Safe, clean, comfortable hotels on the islands and in Quito, with private bathrooms and breakfasts.

All meals are included from dinner on day 1 to breakfast on day 10, bar two dinners (allow USD 10 per meal) in Galapagos.

We have hearty, American breakfasts, and lunch will either be at a restaurant on on board the boat, depending on where we are. Dinner is taken in a local restaurant picked for its food and charm.

Most meals on Galapagos feature fish, rice, eggs, potatoes or chicken, with lots of fruit, breads and jams. All dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice.

Policies & Restrictions

No restrictions, although any children under 10 years old must be accompanied by a parent in the water, at all times.


This 10 day trip starts from USD 2810pp.

Some recent feedback: 'The highlight was pretty much all of it - it was fantastic. Maybe snorkelling with sharks and meeting a great group of people and our wonderful, passionate guide. This was the the best holiday ever. Literally. I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on.' Trish Dooley.
