Itinerary

Day 1
Baltra

Transfer from Baltra airport to hotel with Highland Visit.

This visit consists of 3 sites: El Chato, Lava tunnels and Los  Gemelos. El Chato Tortoise Reserve is near Santa Rosa, approx 19km from  Puerto Ayora. This is one of the only places where you can observe the  ancient creatures up close in the wild. They look old, they smell old  and they even sound old when they suck in their necks and heads and let  out a hiss of air, like an old leather cushion. The reserve is also a  great place to see the short eared owls, Darwin’s finches, yellow  warblers and paint billed crakes. 

After you return to the current century you will be taken to the lava  tubes, where you can walk more than 1km underground. They were formed  by the solidifying of the outside skin of molten lava flow. When the  lava flow ceased, the molten lava inside the flow kept moving, emptying  out of the solidified skin thus leaving tunnels. 

Lastly a visit to Las Gemelos, the twin craters that are actually  sink holes surrounded by Scalesia forest. Vermillion flycatchers and  often seen here, as well as short eared owls on occasion. It is a  beautiful place to take in the greenery of Galapagos and walk along the  small paths around the craters to spot some of the bird life. 

At the conclusion of the tour you will be transported back to Puerto Ayora and your hotel.
