Itinerary
NORTHERN (5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS)
  • DAY 1 DAY 1 - BALTRA ISLAND - HIGHLANDS (SANTA CRUZ ISLAND)
    Rebecca Adventure Travel Santa Cruz Highlands
    After landing at Baltra Airport, we drive to the Itabaca Channel to take a ferry across to Santa Cruz Island. After lunch, we drive to a nearby reserve that is one of the best places in the archipelago to see giant tortoises in their natural habitat. The tortoises are easy to spot, lumbering around, munching on grass and leaves, and wallowing in small pools.

    Rebecca Adventure Travel Chinese-Hat
    After breakfast, a panga ride takes us to Eden Islet, located off the coast of Santa Cruz, where we can observe blue-footed boobies diving into the water, reef sharks, and frigates. The tiny island of Sombrero Chino gets its name from its appearance, reminiscent of a Chinese hat. This islet, formed only fairly recently, makes a beautiful visit as one explores the wildlife along its 400-meter long trail, which begins at a crescent-shaped white sandy beach.

    This morning, a Galapagos icon awaits Bartolome Island. A great way to start the day, with a steep climb up a wooden staircase: the view from the top is worth the effort! After lunch, we board the pangas to land at Sullivan Bay on the east coast of Santiago, a white coral sand beach great for swimming and snorkeling, and with a trail over a lava field that flowed here less than 100 years ago.

    Rebecca Adventure Travel Baltra
    Our journey ends at Baltra Island, where we transfer to the airport to take the flight back to the mainland. Baltra’s flat substrate (due to its uplifted origin) is the reason why the island was chosen back in the 1940s as the location to build an airport. Baltra is one of the gateways to the Galapagos Islands where Seymour Airport is located, also known as Baltra Airport. This small island is also known by the local name of South Seymour.
