Archipel1 Oniric fleet Galapagos Islands Ecuador

ITINERARY A5 - 5D/4N

This comprehensive 4-night itinerary runs around the largest island of Isabela and explores the untouched western end of Galapagos, which has just been born out of the fire. Nutrient-rich ocean upwellings are a magnet to all kinds of marine and birdlife. It’s true that accessing this remote, less-frequented region demands longer navigation (mainly overnight), but the stable Archipel enables you to witness Survival of the Fittest, without experiencing it.
