Attractions Visited

Baltra Island

Baltra Island is the starting point for most visitors to the Galápagos, as it’s the site of the archipelago’s airport. The Baltra airport was remodeled in 2008 and has the usual amenities of a modern-day airport. Upon landing here, visitors will connect with board their cruises or take a boat directly to Santa Cruz Island, where plenty of lovely hotels and interesting wildlife attractions await.

Baltra Island

Bartolome

While at first glance this small island looks rather unspectacular, it is a visitor favorite. Once you climb to the island’s 375-ft (114-m) summit you’ll see why.

Bartolome

Espanola

Española is one of the most remote islands in the Galápagos. Fortunately, the wildlife and scenery here is well worth the long boat ride.

Espanola

Fernandina

Adjacent to Isabela Island is the westernmost island of Fernandina. This island is a popular stop during cruise tours. Fernandina has seen very few invasive species and minimal human activity, making it one of the most pristine islands in the Galápagos.

Fernandina

Leon Dormido

The name of this island is rightfully disputed. From a distance, it resembles a sleeping sea lion, giving it the name León Dormido. To others it may look like a boot, giving it the English name Kicker Rock. Regardless of the name you think fits it best, this 480-ft (146-m) rock formation is impressive. It rises abruptly out of the sea and is teeming with wildlife both above and below the water.

Leon Dormido

Santiago

Santiago Island lies just north of Santa Cruz Island, and is comparable in size. With several visitor sites dispersed across the island, there are great opportunities to walk recent lava flows, observe colonies of fur seals, and snorkel in submerged lava cones.

Santiago

Seymour Norte

A small plateau of an island, North Seymour (Seymour Norte) lies just north of Baltra Island. This small island is a bird watcher’s paradise.

Seymour Norte

On this tour you’ll see some remnants of that history, as well as plants and animals that are rare even by Galápagos standards—Floreana Island has its very own endemic species of finch called a medium tree finch, to offer just one example.
