Pair the wild Galápagos Islands with incredible Ecuador on this one-of-a-kind Un-Cruise sailing
Where is nature truly untouched by man? In a place ruled by prehistoric lizards and bustling birds, white-sand beaches and lava tubes. A cruise to the Galápagos Islands is all about leaving your world behind – especially when it’s paired with the amazing history and culture of Ecuador on Un-Cruise Adventures’ Colonial Quito & Galápagos Islands itinerary.
Stop one on your 10-day journey is Quito, a historic city rich with culture and legend. Spend two nights here discovering otherworldly treasures around every corner, from plazas built atop Incan temples and markets, to stunning Spanish convents, monasteries, and churches. Explore the city’s impressively preserved city center, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, before watching the sun set over the city sights.
Sailing into the Galápagos Islands
Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin as you sail into the unknown. Step aboard La Pinta, an elegant 48-guest yacht, to make your way toward Isla San Cristóbal, where lava lizards, three types of boobies, and marine iguanas are waiting to meet you. On Isla Española, hike out to visit sea lions and finches, then cool off with some snorkeling alongside green sea turtles.
Isla Santa Cruz brings you up-close with the magnificent giant tortoise, while Sombrero Chino Islet offers opportunities for relaxing on a picture-perfect beach, or snorkeling with reef sharks and penguins. Next up? Climb to the summit of a volcano on Isla Bartolomé, and be completely surrounded by incredible birds on Isla Genovesa.
