Finch Bay Hotel - 4 Nights Itinerary C

This 5-day/4-night introduction to the enchanted Galapagos Islands can be experienced on two (2) full-day cruises to a nearby island in the Galapagos archipelago, and one (1) full-day land-based exploration excursion, or by simply relaxing and enjoying the hotel’s privacy, natural surroundings, swimming pool, fine dining and superb service.

Your two (2) full-day cruises on this Galapagos tour program will take you to wildlife-rich North Seymour, iconic Bartolome, wild and rugged South Plaza or beautiful Santa Fe Island. Led by experienced naturalist guides and provided with excellent service, this astonishing sea adventure will remain in your memory forever.

In addition, your one (1) full-day of land exploring can take you to places such as a Galapagos Giant tortoise reserve, the island’s lava tunnels, significant geological formations, the Charles Darwin Research Station, Tortuga Bay (sea turtles’ favorite place to lay their eggs), or other fascinating sites.

Alternatively, you may prefer to pursue your favorite outdoor activities on or near the hotel’s grounds on Santa Cruz Island. Here, you can participate in sports such as kayaking, scuba diving, biking, and hiking. Then too, you may want to want to just lie back on the pool’s sun deck, enjoying the incredible hospitality, the Cordon Bleu cuisine, and the beachfront view from your hammock.

Finch Bay Hotel: Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Flight from the Mainland (from Quito or Guayaquil) – Arrival in the Galapagos (Baltra Island Airport) – Shared Transfer to the Finch Bay Hotel

In the morning, you will fly from Quito or Guayaquil (on the Ecuadorian mainland) to Baltra Island, the main point of entrance to this natural paradise and situated in the heart of the Galapagos archipelago. Upon your arrival at the airport, you will need to pay the national park entry fee, which goes to protecting both the Galapagos National Park and Marine Reserve. A member of the Finch Bay/Surtrek team will then welcome you and accompany you to the Finch Bay Hotel. After checking in and unpacking, the stunning pool deck and hammocks throughout the property are especially great places to relax and unwind before enjoying your Cordon Bleu dinner. Alternatively, you may choose to spend the morning visiting El Manzanillo Reserve in the highlands to see Giant Galapagos tortoises roaming free and grazing on the lush vegetation in their natural habitat; in the afternoon, you can visit an organic farm where coffee, sugar cane and cocoa are grown.

Day 2
Full-day of exploring by yacht OR Full-day land-based exploration excursion on Santa Cruz Island OR Day of Leisure

Today you will have your choice of going on a full-day cruise, or a full-day land-based exploration excursion, or spending the day near the hotel relaxing and engaged in outdoor sporting activities.

Should you choose to go on a full-day land exploring excursion, we will leave out from the hotel headed to the Highlands of Santa Cruz. From there a short drive across the farming area will lead us to a site called “El Manzanillo,” at the northern edge of the Giant Tortoise Reserve. El Manzanillo is located on the natural path the enormous creatures take every year as they either migrate to higher moist locations or when they descend to the warmer lowlands during the wet season. The area is teeming with life, including woodpecker mockingbirds and flycatchers, as well as ducks, herons and gallinules. On our return to the town of Puerto Ayora, we can visit one of the island’s lava tunnels, significant geological formations that take us back in time and allow us to remember how lava flows formed the islands.

Alternatively, you may choose to take a cruise to a nearby island or stay on Santa Cruz Island to simply relax on the hotel’s sun deck, go snorkeling, diving, sea kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, or visiting a nearby Giant tortoise nature reserve. If you choose to go kayaking in the waters behind the hotel, you'll get a close-up look at sharks, sea turtles, rays, and a variety of birds.

Day 3
Full-day of exploring by yacht OR Full-day land-based exploration excursion on Santa Cruz Island OR Day of Leisure

Today, you will again have your choice of going on a full-day cruise, or a full-day land-based exploration excursion, or spending the day near the hotel relaxing and engaged in outdoor sporting activities.

Should you choose to go on a full-day cruise, a Santa Fe Island yacht excursion can be one of your options. Once disembarking on this island, you will find that a short trek leads through woods of Opuntia cacti and Palo Santo trees, where land iguanas (endemic to Santa Fe), lava lizards and colonies of sea lions can be observed. On Santa Fe, you will also have a chance to swim and snorkel.

Alternatively, you may choose to go on a full-day land-based exploring excursion or stay on Santa Cruz Island to simply relax on the hotel’s sun deck or participate in a number of outdoor sports activities and/or land excursions.

Day 4
Full-day of exploring by yacht OR Full-day land-based exploration excursion on Santa Cruz Island OR Day of Leisure

Today you will have your choice of going on your single full-day cruise on board the hotel's Sea Lion yacht, or going on a full-day land-based exploration excursion or spending the day near the hotel relaxing and engaged in outdoor sporting activities.

Should you choose to go on your second of two full-day cruises, you will take a yacht excursion to a nearby island (North Seymour, Bartolome, South Plaza or Santa Fe Island). Should you choose to visit Bartolome Island, once you land you can enjoy the spectacular Galapagos views as you ascend the hillsides of this unique island. On Bartolome, you will also find fascinating lava formations and tuff cones, in addition to sunning sea lions and penguins swimming in the vicinity of emblematic Pinnacle Rock. You can also enjoy snorkeling or swimming from the beach.

Should you choose to go on a full-day land exploring excursion today, we will head for Tortuga Bay, located to the southwest of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island. Its name means “turtle”, and the island received this moniker because it is sea turtles favorite place to lay their eggs. The stunning white sand beach is considered by many the most beautiful in the Galapagos archipelago. The beach is reached via a marked and cobbled two kilometer path that is excellent bird-watching, as you can find plenty of Darwin’s finches and other sea birds here. Arriving at Tortuga Bay, you will see that this is a great place to kayak, snorkel and surf! The headquarters of the Galapagos National Park Service and The Charles Darwin Research Station are located side by side here on the outskirts of Puerto Ayora. There is also an interpretation center open to the public, and you can also visit the tortoise rearing program (those guests who do not have the opportunity to explore the highlands of Santa Cruz and see tortoises in their natural habitat will have the chance to see tortoises here). For those who have already seen them in the wild, a visit to the Center will expand your knowledge of this unique, iconic Galapagos creature.

Alternatively, you may choose to stay closer to the hotel to simply relax on the sun deck or participate in a number of outdoor sports activities.
