Experience the exotic and bizarre wildlife of this enchanting and fragile archipelago by small-yacht and luxury tented camp. Exploring by land and sea, and led by top-rated naturalist guides, you'll hike on lava flows, come face to face with iguanas and giant tortoises, kayak and snorkel among penguins, and swim with frisky sea lions!
For the first six days, cruise the outer Galapagos Islands in the exclusive comfort of a 16-passenger catamaran, the MC Athala, among the most luxurious yachts plying the waters of the Galapagos archipelago. Eight spacious deluxe cabins offer en-suite bathrooms, climate control and large picture windows, four cabins with private balconies. The Athala provides plenty of outdoor space including a large sundeck, an open air bar and an al fresco dining area where you can take in the islands' spectacular scenery while enjoying a delicious meal. In addition, complimentary wetsuits, snorkeling gear and kayaks ensure full enjoyment of the Galapagos' many wonders above and below the surface!
Following the Galapagos cruise aboard the Athala, spend two days on land, based from the Galapagos Safari Camp in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. This luxurious tented camp— one of a kind in Latin America—follows the African safari tradition in which guests are pampered with all the comforts of home while immersed in the natural world. Gaze at the Pacific Ocean while relaxing in a hammock on your deck; take a dip in the infinity pool; and enjoy freshly prepared meals using ingredients harvested from the surrounding farm.
