Opuntia Island Hopping Journey, 6 Days

With the Island Hopping Voyage, you get the best of both worlds – all the benefits of our land-based Galapagos journeys, as well as two day trips to some of the archipelago’s smaller islands. The Voyage offers a similar experience to our Island Hopping Journey, with an extra day for an additional small island day trip. Experience the best of San Cristobal and Santa Cruz, including their beautiful landscapes, amazing wildlife, and laid-back beach towns, then get a taste of the remote as you visit two of the unpopulated islands of the Galapagos. In the evenings, relax and dine on gourmet cuisine at our boutique Opuntia Hotels. Your Island Hopping Voyage is led by top naturalist guides who add insight to the activities and surroundings. With the Opuntia Island Hopping Voyage, enjoy the attractions of four very different islands in only six days!
