The Galapagos Islands arent just all about cruising - try a camping experience on for size! Over a week's time and beginning and ending right in the heart of the action (the islands, of course), you'll stay active by snorkelling, diving, and hiking diverse terrain before slowing things down with wildlife exploration in the company of an expert Naturalist Guide. At the end of the day, you'll camp out surrounded by the sounds of island wildlife. With plenty of options to stick around after the trip's done (or show up early for some independent adventuring beforehand), this is the perfect express trip for a most excellent Galapagos experience.
