ABOUT THE ADVENTURE

Embark on a one-of-a-kind adventure to Ecuador and the enchanting Galapagos Islands for 7 days/nights, where conservation meets exploration in a journey that leaves a lasting impact. Join our expedition for a truly unique and transformative experience that seamlessly blends eco-volunteering, awe-inspiring encounters with natural wonders, and immersive cultural engagements. Embarking from the mainland of Ecuador, our adventure kicks off with a ferry ride to Santa Cruz Island. There, we'll delve into the fascinating world of conservation at the Charles Darwin Research Station, gaining insight into the groundbreaking initiatives aimed at preserving the Galapagos' unique biodiversity. A visit to the highlands allows us to witness giant tortoises thriving in their natural habitat—an awe-inspiring testament to the island's flourishing ecosystem.

Our journey continues to Isabela Island, where an enriching volunteering experience awaits us, focusing on nurturing and protecting nesting turtles. In addition to this vital contribution, there's a treasure trove of optional adventures to choose from. Embark on a kayaking expedition, hike through ancient lava tunnels, summit a volcano for breathtaking vistas, or tour a local coffee plantation, where you can assist in farm activities and savor farm-fresh delights. Snorkeling and kayaking in the pristine waters surrounding Isabella offer a glimpse into the vibrant marine life.

As daylight turns into night, immerse yourself in the local community, forging connections and gaining a deeper understanding of their way of life. Our evenings are designed for embracing the warmth and culture of the island, providing an opportunity to make meaningful memories and engage in enriching conversations with fellow adventurers. This expedition promises not only adventure but also a chance to leave a positive mark on this remarkable corner of the world.

Join our expedition and let the Galapagos Islands become a part of your story—a journey where your conservation efforts  and adventurous spirit combine to create memories that will last a lifetime.
