Galapagos Islands with the Womens Travel Network

Feb 19 - Mar 21, 2023

12 days | Ecuador | Expedition Cruise

Join Debbie Ross on this Galapagos private yacht expedition to one of the world’s greatest nature destinations. We’ve exclusively chartered the yacht Calipso for our expedition, limited to just 16 passengers.

Our Galapagos naturalist guides are on board to lead island walks and on-board talks as we set sail to discover these remarkable island ecosystems, skirting past nesting boobies, scouting the seas for breaching whales and snorkeling among colourful fish. Desolate at first sight, these rough and rocky isles are home to wonderfully strange and abundant wildlife. As Charles Darwin did almost 200 years before us, we will marvel at the highly adapted creatures found nowhere else on Earth. And what is so special about the Galapagos experience is that these creatures act as though humans are nothing more than a passing interest, allowing us to observe them up close and walk among them.

Before boarding our Galapagos yacht, we’ll spend time in Quito, exploring the charming colonial city and delving into the colourful Otavalo market where vendors, many from Ecuador’s indigenous groups, sell a dizzying array of artisan crafts, including woolen goods, embroidery, and jewelry.
