Picture it: the Galápagos, viewed from the deck of the comfortable Monserrat as she cuts through blue waters bound for another island paradise loaded with natural splendour. But it’s not just a “look but can’t touch” situation – on this trip, you’ll get up-close and personal with aquatic wildlife like sea lions and turtles, hike over volcanic lava flows to check out the landscapes of Bartolomé, and relax on the stunning white-sand beaches of Santiago. Get out onto the high seas and start making better memories.

Highlights


• 7 nights cruising the Galápagos National Park aboard the Monserrat

• Hike over the dramatic volcanic flows to a viewpoint on Bartolomé

• Snorkel with sea lions and sea turtles

• Hike the Sierra Negra Volcano – the largest basaltic caldera in the Galápagos
