Fantastic trip through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu, then out the the Galapagos for a once in a lifetime journey.
To dream is to be alive! Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed about visiting the Galapagos Islands. Little did I know, that one day I would achieve that dream, not from Montreal where I was born, but from the Yukon, in northern Canada.
During the Summer of 2009 I promised my grandson that the following summer, after his high school graduation, I'd take him anywhere in the world as long as he was willing to travel with me. He chose the Galapagos Archipelago.
The words "Adventure Life" certainly described this hiking tour of Galapagos. Adventures were had from day 1 through the final return. WHAT FUN!! The animals, people and country was amazing...
Following in Charles Darwin's footsteps, I will be traveling to Ecuador, from Quito to the Galapagos Islands. I have my trusty backpack, my water shoes, my guide to Ecuador and of course, my camera. (Can't leave home without it). Buen viaje and vamos!
My friend Margy and I embarked on our first trip together. We loved Peru and had a great time in the Galapagos!
After being on over 22 cruises on big ships, I was looking for a different experience. I think Adventure Life did a outstanding job with all the arrangements, informative guides and staff before, during and after our Galapagos cruise on the Millennium.
What a trip! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves - there's probably no need for descriptions, but I'll give it a shot. Can't wait to go back to see some of the other islands that we weren't able to visit this time.
Galapagos Cruise: Through Adventure Life, my friends and I flew into Quito and on to the Galapagos Islands, where we spent 8 days on a 215' square rigger sailing yacht, exploring the islands with an ecologist. What an adventure!
Galapagos Cruise: We had been wanting to go to the Galapagos for years, and I must say, the experience we had did not disappoint.
Continuing her small-ship adventures, Reilly introduced the Galapagos Islands to her dad. How do you sum up a trip to the Galapagos? A birders paradise? A zoo without cages? Neither of the previous statements do Darwins Islands any justice.
Quito, a trip to Sacha Lodge in the Amazon, and a 5-day Galapagos Island cruise. I was amazed at the incredible variety in environment and landscape I found in such a tiny country. And the wildlife did NOT disappoint!
We travelled as far south as Antarctica, where complete solitude was discovered."El Mitad del Mundo" was the most northernly stop. Hiked the "W" circuit of Torres del Paine and the Inca Trail. Awed by Punta del Diablo, Salar de Uyu
In summary, this was a month well spent. We cannot praise highly enough Adventure life for their assistance in putting all this together.
