If you’re looking for a taste of exotic nature, look no further than this trip aboard the Monserrat, our comfort-class vessel for navigating the waters of the Galápagos. Start with a day on land and stay at a beautiful island hotel, the best possible way to start your tour. Snorkelling with sea lions and other aquatic wildlife and taking a trek over volcanic rock will give you both incredible sights and indelible memories. And with two naturalist guides on the tour, you’ll bring home extra knowledge to go along with your photo slideshows.
