Highlights from 10-days Cotopaxi, Devil’s Nose, Cuenca & Galapagos Islands by Nautica

Galapagos Activities

Nowhere is it more evident than in the Galapagos Islands. It is this status as a “Laboratory of Evolution” and its historical inspiration of naturalist Charles Darwin that make Galapagos special. The Galapagos Islands are also extremely pristine: no other place on earth is as free of introduced and invasive species.

Devils Nose Train Adventure

The ingenious engineering solution was to carve a series of tight zigzags out of the rock, which allowed the train to climb 800m at a gradient of 1-in-18 by going forwards then backwards up the tracks.

Family and Children in Galapagos

Explore Galapagos aboard a first class yacht. Lot of activities, hiking, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and good lectures from our guides.
