Explore the Galápagos islands on foot, by kayak, mountain bike, snorkelling and diving.
While many people enjoy the Galápagos from a cruise yacht, with gentle exploration of the islands on a guides walk and a bit of swimming, there is indeed much more to see and do to get your adrenaline pumping.
From on board ship you can dive and snorkel, but if you are based in a hotel on one of the larger islands you can take part in other activities for a more intimate knowledge of the volcanic landscape. Volcano hikes, kayaking, surfing and mountain biking are included in some of our Galápagos holidays and also bookable at many of the hotels and also the agencies in Puerto Ayora, the capital. Discover unspoilt landscapes away from the crowds, accompanied only by the trusting wildlife which so outnumbers the human population of the islands.
