WHY THIS TRIP
This is a great trip for seasoned travelers and/or those looking to keep costs down. With your own private guide on each island (from one of National Geographic’s Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth), you’ll join onto shared tours each day. This helps cut down on the cost of logistics, without skimping on a quality of your guides. You’ll hike, sea kayak, bike and snorkel your way through the Galapagos. With evenings free and suggested self-guided excursions you gain access to the park through your guided excursions while still keeping your autonomy to enjoy and explore the islands on your own.
The Essential Galapagos Multisport Adventure is the perfect choice for those wanting to explore the amazing flora and fauna of the Galapagos, but who don’t want to be cooped up on a boat, and want more action than just slow-paced naturalist walks. On this Galapagos Multisport, you will be hiking, sea kayaking, snorkeling, and mountain biking alongside the world famous wildlife of the Galapagos, spending more time out in nature recreating than on any naturalist cruise.
You will discover the incredible wildlife of the Islands with top naturalist and adventure guides. Each guide specialized in running active, challenging tours and to do it safely. These guides are trained as both naturalist guides (certified by the National Park) and as adventure experts, so you get both interpretation of the Islands’ natural wonders and the expertise to run a truly thrilling tour.
By overnighting on three different Islands in local lodges, you get a bit of time to yourself and a feel for each Island’s particular culture. Since you don’t travel to new Islands every day, you spend more time visiting sites and less time traveling. But you also travel enough to really get a sense for the diversity between the Islands to see how the animal and plant life evolved independently. You’ll be active all day and in the evenings, you have time to explore small port towns, or just kick-back in quality, choice hotels.
This trip is a more budget friendly version of our other land-based multisport adventures in the Galapagos Islands, but you still have high quality guides, wildlife viewing, and adventure activities. To help cut down on trip costs, you use shared transportation for all of your daily tours and activities. You will also have some free time to do a self-guided tour or explore on your own. Not all meals are included, you’ll have all dinners and some lunches on your own. However, you will have private guides for all of your tours. The guides for NeoTropic are exceptional, experienced naturalist and adventure guides, so you know you’ll be getting some of the best guides in the islands. You will have a different guide on each of the three islands you visit.
