Today we explored two small islands of the Galapagos with unbelievably beautiful landscapes and wildlife. We began in the early morning on the young island of Bartolomé. It’s filled with cinder cones that give it a beautiful lunar look. After exploring the area, we walked 380 steps to the top for a spectacular view of the famous pinnacle rock.

In the afternoon Rábida Island offered us a red sandy beach where we did some kayaking and snorkeling with sea turtles, sharks and many fish. To finish our day, we had a stroll on the beach next to flamingos and sea lions!
