Baltra, Galapagos-Inseln
15:00

Bereiten Sie sich auf eine abenteuergeladene Entdeckungsreise durch Galapagos auf dieser wunderschönen Insel vor. Während des 2. Weltkriegs war der Flughafen der Insel eine amerikanische Militärbasis, welche den Panamakanal vor feindlichen Angriffen schützte. Heutzutage werden Sie um den Flughafen herum Landleguane zu sehen bekommen, welche auf der Insel einheimisch sind.

Black Turtle Cove
16:00
18:00

Located in the center of the Galapagos archipelago, Santa Cruz Island, or Isla Santa Cruz as known by the locals, is the second largest island in the chain, after Isabela. The capital of the island is Puerto Ayora, which is the most populated urban center in the Galapagos Islands as well as the largest port town. The island itself is the most populated in the Galapagos, with 12,000 residents scattered throughout small villages. The island is a large, dormant volcano which it is estimated hasn’t been active in over a million years. As a testament to the volcano’s previous activity, there is a giant lava tunnel over 6,500 feet long that tourists can walk through.The highlands of Puerto Ayora offer are filled with a variety of trees and plants such as scalesia trees, cat’s claws, and Galapagos miconia. The highlands are also home to land tortoises that roam free in search of food and shallow ponds. There are also two large holes on the island named Los Gemelos or “The Twins,” which were caused as the result of the collapse of a magma chamber. Tortuga Bay can be found on the island, a pristine spot to observe marine iguanas, birds, Galapagos crabs, and a natural mangrove in which white-tipped reef sharks and the Galapagos tortoise can be found. Speaking of the giant tortoise, the Charles Darwin Research Station is located here, where they have implemented a breeding program for these endangered giants. This research station is the operational hub for the international non-profit Charles Darwin Foundation, and crucial research as well as environmental education are performed here. Santa Cruz is the main tourism hub for all of the Galapagos Islands and contains the longest paved road in the Galapagos, which runs across the island north-south. Indulge in the pristine white sand beaches of Las Bachas on the northern coast. Explore Black Turtle Cove by zodiac, and wonder at the impressive iguana population on Dragon Hill. It is on Isla Santa Cruz that tourists can really experience the interior and higher elevations of a Galapagos Island, as the elevation rises to a breathtaking height of 2,835 feet.

Sullivan-Bucht (Santiago)
07:30
10:30

Staunen Sie bei einer faszinierenden morgendlichen Wanderung über eine wundersam geschwärzte Landschaft und folgen Sie mit ihren Schritten den ausgehärteten Pfaden, auf denen bei einem Vulkanausbruch in den 1900er Jahren in Strömen Lava floss. Eingestürzte Krater, Lavaschornsteine und Kakteen aus geschmolzenem Gestein säumen Ihren Weg durch hoch aufragende, rote vulkanische Ablagerungen, sogenannte Schlackenkegel, hindurch. Sie werden sich in eine seltsame Marslandschaft hineinversetzt fühlen. Bei einer kurzen Küstenfahrt mit einem Exkursionsboot bekommen Sie noch mehr von der interessanten Geologie der Insel zu sehen und haben zudem die Möglichkeit, nach Blaufußtölpeln, Meeresschildkröten und dergleichen Ausschau zu halten.

Bartolome Island (Santiago)
14:00
16:30

Charles Darwin hat uns gelehrt, dass wir uns fortwährend weiterentwickeln müssen, um mit der Welt um uns herum, die im stetigen Wandel ist, Schritt halten zu können. Wir haben uns das zu Herzen genommen und in den zehn Jahren, in denen wir die Galapagos-Inseln ansteuern, gelernt, dass wir auch unser Kreuzfahrtangebot an die Bedürfnisse der modernen Entdecker von heute anpassen müssen. Deshalb genießen Sie nun deutlich mehr Annehmlichkeiten auf Ihrer Reise zu dieser einzigartigen Inselgruppe. Wir sehen das so: Die Galapagos-Inseln bieten Ihnen eine urtümliche, natürliche und einfache Umgebung – aber warum sollte Ihre Reise dorthin schon genau so sein?

Urvina Bay, Isabela
08:00
11:00

Im Jahr 1954 brach der Vulkan Alcedo auf der Insel Isabella, der größten Insel des Galapagos Archipels, aus und hob Teile des Ozeansbodens um zirka 10 Meter an, so dass sie die Wasseroberfläche erreichte. Dieser beeindruckende Landstrich ist unter dem Namen Urvina Bay bekannt. Während Sie auf dieser exotischen Küste spazieren gehen, erinnern Sie sich daran, dass Sie sich auf den Überresten eines einst versunkenen Korallenriffs befinden. Bestaunen Sie die Felsformationen – Korallenblöcke aus einer vergangenen Zeit. Sie werden außerdem bunte Meeresechsen, Schildkröten, Muscheln und Vögel wie den flugunfähigen Kormoran zu sehen bekommen.

Fernandina is the youngest island in the Galapagos and,as Darwin wrote, it is “covered with immense delugesof black naked lava.” Along with its extraordinary blacklava rocks, this point of land hosts the largest colony ofmarine iguanas in the Archipelago, along with sea lionsand a nesting site for flightless cormorants.

Vicente Roca Point
15:30
18:00

About one million years ago, six volcanoes (five of which are still active) coalesced to form seahorse-shaped Isabela, the largest of the Galapagos Islands. At 1,790 square miles, it’s larger than all of the other islands combined, and, because it’s located on the western edge of the archipelago near the Galápagos hotspot, it’s one the world’s most volcanically active places. While many of the Galapagos islands are home to wildlife only, Isabela had a robust population of 1,749 in the 2006 census. From Tagus Cove on the northwestern side (which sheltered whalers, pirates, and buccaneers in days of old) to the laid-back resort town of Puerto Villamil at its southern tip, the island offers visitors a dazzling variety of terrains, wildlife and experiences. The Cromwell Current hits the base of Isabela’s west coast, causing nutrient-rich water to up well creating the perfect feeding environment for ground for fish, whales, dolphins, and birds. Because 16 species of whales have been identified in the area (including humpbacks, sperms, sei, minkes and orcas), it’s regarded as the best place to see whales in the Galapagos. As is often the case in the region, animal species abound. Visitors can hope to see penguins, cormorants, marine iguanas, boobies, pelicans, Sally Lightfoot crabs, Galápagos land iguanas, Darwin’s finches, Galápagos hawks, and Galápagos doves. There are many and varied ways to encounter wildlife on Isabela: at Moreno Point, near Elizabeth Bay on the west coast, visitors traverse a lava path to find pools at which a wide variety of birds feed. Vicente Roca Point offers some of the most dramatic landscapes in the Galapagos and the opportunity to see the remains of Ecuador Volcano

Espumilla Beach, Santiago
15:00
18:00

Santiago Island, which is made up of two overlapping volcanoes, was historically a stopping place for Spanish sailors to refill their water barrels and stock up on perishables. The island is currently uninhabited, though there were colonization attempts throughout the 1800s and early 1900s. At one time there was a salt mine on Puerto Egas. The mine was closed in the 1960s, but you can still tour the site today. Santiago was the second island Charles Darwin visited in the Galapagos. When he arrived, the land iguanas were so abundant that he and the crew of the HMS Beagle had trouble finding a spot to pitch their tents for the night. Yet today, there are no land iguanas remaining on Santiago Island. Conservation of native wildlife has presented something of a challenge here: Feral pigs, donkeys, and goats, which were brought by early island settlers and passing mariners wreaked havoc on the endemic plant and animal life over the years and taxed precious resources. At one point, the goat population was estimated to have blossomed to around 100,000. To date, all three species have been eradicated. While you’re on Santiago Island, you’ll have the chance to stop at Puerto Egas, which is home to a colony of playful fur seals. You can visit them at the sea caves and grottoes (essentially collapsed lava tubes) where they enjoy swimming and lounging on the rocks. You’ll also pay a visit to Espumilla Beach, renowned as a sea turtle nesting site. At Sullivan Bay, you’ll see firsthand the effects of volcanic eruptions and have the unique experience of walking across a recent lava flow.

Puerto Ayora
08:00
18:00

Ein fünfzehnminütiger Spaziergang von einem Ende zum anderen, entlang der Charles Darwin Avenue verspricht Ihnen in der größten Stadt der Galapagos Inseln Sehenswürdigkeiten im Überfluss. Puerto Ayora, eine charmante Stadt an der Küste, bietet Ihnen ecuadorianische und internationale Delikatessen, örtliches Kunsthandwerk, viele Einkaufs- und Wassersportmöglichkeiten, wie Schnorcheln und Tauchen.

09.12.22
El Barranco (Genovesa)
07:30
11:45

Named after the birthplace of legendary explorer Christopher Columbus, Genovesa Island is a Galapagos Island crown jewel. This horseshoe-shaped island is also known for its diverse population of birds and distinct shape. Those characteristics are where Genovesa draws its two nicknames from: Bird Island and Tower Island. And you’ll likely notice both as you step off your zodiac. You’ll walk up the same rocky path Prince Phillips did when he visited the Galapagos Islands in 1965 and 1981. As you scale the cliffs, you’ll make your first encounter with the colonies of colorful seabird. You’ll disperse into the thin Palo Santo forest where your path inland is a birdwatcher’s dream. Flocks upon flocks of birds nesting in their natural habitats. Swallow-tailed Gulls. Red-footed Boobies. Nazca Boobies. Blue-footed Boobies. Storm Petrels. Galapagos Mockingbirds. Galapagos Doves. Great Frigate Birds. Lava Gulls. Fiddler Crabs. And that’s not all.

If you love eclectic cuisine, Darwin, which sits at the top of the Northern Territories and is therefore at the crossroads of so many cultures, will not disappoint. Sample everything from crocodile and barramundi to mud crabs and buffalo. Once you’ve had your fill of culinary adventures, saunter into the street and watch musicians and performers show off traditional Aboriginal culture.
