At a Glance

Explore two wonderful worlds as you journey high into the Andes — then from island to island in the Galápagos. Meet indigenous people that have called the highlands home for centuries, visit a flower-growing hacienda and discover the grand colonial center of Quito. Then fly over 575 miles of Pacific Ocean to the volcanic archipelago Charles Darwin called “a little world within itself.” A seven-night small ship voyage gives you plenty of opportunities for up-close encounters with iguanas, tortoises, sea lions, turtles, Galápagos Penguins and more.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Explore the well-preserved colonial center of Quito, one of the first places on earth designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Discover the unique birds of the Galápagos including the Flightless Cormorant, the Blue-footed Booby and Darwin’s finches.
  • Attend the historic Otavalo Market, an institution dating back to pre-Incan times, and visit the home of an indigenous family.
