Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rain Forest

January 22, 2019 – February 2, 2019


Early-bird deadline (up to $300 in discounts): November 1, 2018

Numerous amazing sites await you near the Equator where the Galápagos Islands sit in the Pacific Ocean and the Amazon Rain Forest looms nearby. Colorful volcanic rock, electric eels, lava tunnels and hybrid iguanas are just a taste of this region of the world. Our trip will include hikes in a private nature reserve and rafting on a traditional balsa raft. There will be walks across suspended bridges, relaxation in hot springs and a zip line basket ride through the rain forest. Expert guides will take you through Ecuador’s capital, Quito and its famous Church of San Francisco. And there’s a lot more!
