Itinerary C

To the untouched west of the Galapagos

Our 6-night route runs around the largest, seahorse-shaped island of Isabela, where nature seems to hunt for the greatest. Explore the virtually untouched western end of the Galapagos, which has just been born out of fire. You are just in time for the first thrilling chapters of evolution! Uncover the mystery of how tough pioneer species make barren lava fields habitable; and approach bizarre outgrowths of adaptation such as marine iguanas and flightless cormorants. It’s true that accessing this remote and isolated region requires longer navigation (mainly overnight), but our stable mega-catamaran enables you to witness ‘survival of the fittest’, without experiencing it.
