Land and Water Safari on Santiago Island, Galapagos

Santiago offers a sublime variety of wildlife experiences. Thrilling lava flows stretch across the island, devoid of wildlife but redolent of volcanic power. 

Huge iguanas lurk where flora has sprouted, their eyes watching you impassively from a distance. A walking trail will take you from Sullivan Bay to James Bay, the guide narrating how the islands continue to evolve. 

Along the way you’ll find flamingos in a lagoon, a rocky coastline dappled with fur seals, and a landscape that looks like the moon. Then get wet. You will explore a snorkel site on Santiago’s northern tip, where sharks and rays are among the pelagic visitors.
