Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate / Flexible
The activities on this trip consist of island walks, swimming and snorkeling. Trails are often rough and uneven, over sharp lava fields and loose rocks and gravel. Walking over slippery rocks is sometimes necessary when coming ashore. Passengers must be able to walk 2 miles to participate in this trip, walk up and down stairs, and be able to get in and out of our motorized pangas, which can be very unsteady in rough water. A few wet landings, where we disembark from the panga directly into the water and walk up onto the beach, are included. Snorkeling is a big component of this trip with nearly daily excursions offered. While no snorkeling experience is required, prior practice is recommended and travelers should be comfortable swimming in moderate currents, near shore and in deep water. Travelers are not required to participate in every activity.
Important Information About This Trip
This is a special Galapagos itinerary, the most in-depth adventure in the islands that's offered. Over a two-week period we visit both the northern islands and southern islands, providing a comprehensive journey through the archipelago that very few travelers experience.
