Bartolome and Rábida

Oct 30, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


On our first full day of expedition, we experienced a fabulous combination of land and water activities. We started our day with a hike in Bartolome Island, one of the most iconic landscapes of the Galapágos. Later on, we snorkeled on the waters of Bartolome where the conditions where absolutely amazing. For lunch, we had an extraordinary variety of Ecuadorian dishes which gave us an opportunity to taste different traditional Ecuadorian delicacies. In the afternoon, we moved to Rábida Island. Here, we started with a second round of snorkel, and at the same time some of our guests explored the area with kayaks and stand-up paddle boards.
