An Archipelago Adventure

The Galápagos Islands are home to some of the world's most fascinating animal life. When you embark on an Avalon Galápagos cruise, you'll encounter giant tortoises, penguins, sea lions, lizards, and a whole host of diverse bird species. Your cruise to the Galápagos Islands starts in Quito, Ecuador. From there you’ll fly to Baltra Island, then board your luxury yacht, the Treasure of Galapagos. Cruise between the spectacular sanctuary islands of San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, and Santiago – to name a few, discovering the wildlife that inspired Charles Darwin.

Galápagos Highlights


Ecuador’s capital sits high in the Andes and is home to a wealth of colonial monuments, historical treasures, picturesque plazas, and art-filled museums. On a guided city tour you’ll visit the 16th-century San Francisco Monastery and La Compañía Church with its spectacular Spanish baroque architecture.

Galápagos Highlights


Take a guided hike to Bartolomé’s 114-metre summit for panoramic views of the region. Later, take a snorkel and swim off the beach here – home to playful sea lions, Pacific green turtles, white tip reef sharks, and Galápagos penguins.
