Galapagos Voyager: Central Islands (Grand Queen Beatriz)

Climb aboard the stylish Grand Queen Beatriz and experience a superb spread of Ecuador’s famous wildlife-filled islands. As well as visiting the must-see icons of the archipelago – such as Isla San Cristobal’s frigate birds, Isla Santa Cruz’ giant tortoises, Pinnacle Rock and Isla Bartolome’s Pinnacle Rock – this 13-day itinerary covers key central islands. Among them are North Seymour, with its beautiful trails and birdlife, and Isla Rabida, with its indigenous wildlife and striking scarlet shores. With volcanic landscapes, sea turtles, marine iguanas, spectacular sea birds and possibly even hammerhead sharks on the agenda, this is an essential Galapagos adventure for animal lovers, keen snorkellers and photographers alike.
