The Galapagos Islands and Mainland Ecuador

Don't be crabby, the 2014 trip is sold out. But, we've started an interest list for a tentative trip in 2015. Call our office to add your name today!

Program Summary: The evolutionary story of the Galápagos Islands has been told many times but only through immersing yourself in their splendor can you truly appreciate the impressive forces that shape nature here and around the globe. Embark on the Samba to explore this tropical, volcanic archipelago plentiful in charismatic wildlife unafraid of you or your camera. The Captain and crew of the Samba are devoted to making your journey the trip of a lifetime. Very few trips will conjugate the wonders of the “Enchanted Islands” with the richness of Biodiversity, Culture, Cuisine and Folklore of Ecuador. Travel from Mangroves on the basin of the Guayas River and climb to the Páramo of Cajas above 10,000 feet! We stopover at Cuenca, a city that is a vivid reminder of the colonial times and that will enhance our journey with flavors of highlands of our country. From the markets and hot springs of the Andes we endeavor to the heart of the Amazon Basin. The Amazon Rainforest is home to about 2.5 million insect species, tens of thousands of plants, and some 2,000 birds and mammals. Explore the most diverse jungle on the face o this earth, home of the Achuar people. The rainforest is the Achuars’ nourishing mother, and within this living web of forest trails, streams and rivers, they know virtually every plant, tree and animal. Here, they fish, hunt, and grow their crops as they have always done. The Achuar maintain a remarkable and intimate relation with nature and its processes.
