Where to Wednesday: Galapagos & Ecuador
If you’re looking for a new Contiki adventure, consider one of the latest tour offerings that Contiki launched THIS year: Galapagos & Ecuador!
The 11-day Galapagos & Ecuador trip begins in Guayaquil and departs from Quito. Travelers spend nights at three of the Galapagos Islands (Santa Cruz, Isabela and San Cristobal) before exploring the mainland of Ecuador for five nights.
In addition to seeing the islands’ giant tortoises and a boating adventure to spot the famous penguins, Contiki also includes a Galapagos BBQ at a favorite island spot and a snorkeling experience off the coast of Santa Cruz. In Ecuador, guests are treated to a variety of activities, from riding the Devil’s Nose Train and salsa dancing lesson with dinner. There’s also plenty of free time to explore or choose from any of Contiki’s MeTime optionals such as an island biking adventure at San Cristobal, a thermal hot springs dip, a rappelling and canyoning day trip, and a whitewater rafting experience in Banos.
If you’ve been following the Contiki blog, you know that right now, Contiki’s Sustainability Partner Celine Cousteau has joined a special departure of this trip. You can check out updates on Twitter and Instagram following hashtag #contikigalapagos for an up-close look at this amazing trip!
