ITINERARY


day
1
We will leave Puerto Baquerizo Moreno by 4x4 truck to the historic site El Progreso, the first human settlement of Galápagos. This place is located in the highlands of the San Cristobal Island and has been declared National Heritage place. From here, we will go by bike to Finca Guadalupe (Guadalupe Farm), located on Cerro Gato, 8 miles far from El Progreso. This property has a privileged location within the area and has the largest aquifer of the island. It is noteworthy that San Cristobal together with Floreana Island, are the only islands with natural freshwater sources. After sharing lunch with the farm owners, we will join them to explore the surroundings, where we will see wonderful waterfalls and small freshwater lagoons. In the afternoon, we can help to harvest fruits and coffee, and learn how to use the sugarcane mill, used to produce cane liquor. At night, we will rest in beautiful rustic cabins, with an incredible view of the ocean and the southeast coast of the island.

Waking up in the Finca Guadalupe we will share a traditional breakfast with the locals. Then we will start a hike of about one hour towards the coast, where we will pass small streams and endemic vegetation. Along the path we will experience three different types of soil and primary forests, while observing endemic birds and lizards. Upon our return, a 4x4 truck will take us back to El Progreso where we’ll visit the famous Casa del Arbol, a tree house built in the archipelago's largest ceibo tree. Here you may choose to return downhill to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno by bike on an exclusive bicycle lane or continue in the 4x4 truck.
