Island Hopping in the Galapagos
By Viator, August 2013
Most travelers will fly into the main airport of Baltra but to get around the islands, you’ll need to pre-book a tour by boat or seaplane. The easiest way to explore is on a multi-day island cruise, but if you’d prefer to sleep on dry land, day tours and multi-day island-hopping tours will allow you to get off-the-beaten-track while staying overnight on the 4 inhabited islands (San Cristóbal, Isabela, Floreana & Santa Cruz). 5-night tours are an ideal way to check off all the highlights of the Galapagos while still having plenty of time to catch your breath, including a 3-night cruise sleeping on board a yacht as you travel out to the furthest islands.
If you fancy attempting a DIY island-hopping trip, you’ll still need to be in the company of a certified tour guide to explore most of the UNESCO World Heritage listed National Park, so opt for a private yacht tour which will allow you to customize your route and spend more time enjoying your chosen activities. Hike on the Island of the Thousand Volcanoes, stop to snap photos of the famous Galápagos penguins, or sail out to some of the lesser-visited isles.
