The Galapagos Islands are an excellent destination for wildlife and bird observation, and of course also for photography and filming. Discover the wide range of activities that are included in our cruise programmes to experience the closest and most intimate encounters with wildlife, and to perceive the unique nature of Galapagos from different perspectives. Some activities depend on local conditions and will be coordinated together with the guide; others are optional, such as strolling around touristic towns or leisure and entertainment on-board.

Guided hikes will give you amazing opportunities to get up close with nature during the island visits.You can also search for Galapagos giant tortoises in moist highland forests, set foot on lunar-like lava fields, climb volcanic cones, stare into recently-erupted craters and even enter lava tunnels. Your knowledgeable National Park-certified guide will name all the species you see, and add intriguing stories about their behaviour, interesting geological formations or the conservation of the islands.
