    7 nights cruising in the Galapagos Islands aboard the Yolita, explore the least visited islands of Isabela and Genovesa to see massive bird colonies and impressive volcanos, relax on the white sandy beaches, hike to the top of the Sierra Negra volcano the most recently active volcano in the Galapagos, go snorkelling with sea lions and search for turtles and rays.

    Description
    The Galapagos Islands all have one thing in common; beautiful landscapes and incredible wildlife. (Okay, that's technically two things, but you get the idea). Travelling aboard the Yolita, this tour takes you to some of the lesser-visited islands like Genovesa in the north and Isabela in the west. Expect to witness an amazing concentration of birdlife and massive bird rookeries, including the largest nesting colonies of red-footed boobies and frigatebirds. Hike right to the top of the Sierra Negra, Galapagos' most recently active volcano, relax on the white-sand beaches, or snorkel with sea lions. Better yet, do it all.
