Cruise Through the Galapagos

Enjoy a fabulous 10-night journey through Quito and the Galapagos Islands, a perfect itinerary for those looking for a fully immersive and luxurious Galapagos getaway. A weeklong Galapagos cruise is one of the most conservation-friendly ways to explore the archipelago. Additionally, it promises exposure to the full gamut of the destination’s unparalleled wildlife and landscapes.


Your Galápagos getaway begins in Quito at Casa Gangotena, a luxury hotel. It is conveniently located in the commercial and residential area of the capital, just a few minutes from the old city. The next morning, meet your guide for your journey to the Otavalo Market, the largest in South America. While there, spend time browsing the traditional arts and crafts of the local artisans who display their wares for sale.

Fly to the Galápagos Islands, where you will be escorted to your luxury cruise ship. Spend the next seven days of your Galapagos getaway exploring the Enchanted Islands with experienced and knowledgeable naturalist guides, all while enjoying the incredible amenities on board the ship. Furthermore, your Galápagos getaway vessel is small in size with room for only 16 passengers allowing for a luxurious, private experience. Also, the smaller size vessel makes it possible to visit parts of the archipelago normally unreachable by the larger cruise ships.

After your seven-day Galápagos getaway adventure, you will return to mainland Ecuador for an overnight stay in Guayaquil. Allow yourself time to readjust to the “real world” before your international flight the following morning.
