Opuntia Wildlife Discovery, 6 Days

For a more in-depth, well-crafted Galapagos wildlife tour, look no further than Opuntia Wildlife Explorer. Like our five-day Wildlife Discovery tour, this six-day tour moves fluidly between three islands. The extra day is spent on Isabela Island, where we’ll hike the highlands of Volcan Sierra Negra and learn more about this sparsely populated island while staying in our flagship Iguana Crossing hotel. Our naturalist guides will teach you all about the amazing natural history of the Galapagos as you follow in Darwin’s footsteps to explore the living history of evolution. Get ready for face-to-face encounters with the incredibly friendly endemic wildlife of the Galapagos, as well as scenic hikes, world-class snorkeling, amazing vistas and plenty of time to unwind on the stunning tropical beaches. Our top-rated guides will escort you throughout your journey, and at the end of the day you will relax, dine, and rejuvenate in comfort at the oceanfront Opuntia Hotels.
