Haverford College Presents

Wonders of the Galápagos Islands

with President Wendy Raymond

February 8 to 16, 2021


This journey will introduce you to the unique Galápagos Islands—a nature lover’s dream destination and UNESCO World Heritage site—with a four-night cruise aboard the first-class, small ship Santa Cruz II, the best expedition-style ship in the Galápagos. Visit six islands, each with their own ecosystem, to observe the exotic birds, animals, and plants that inspired Charles Darwin—including species unknown anywhere else in the world. With few natural predators on the islands, the wildlife is receptive to up-close human interaction. Snorkel alongside tropical penguins and playful sea lions, and almost touch spiny-backed iguanas.

On mainland Ecuador, enjoy three nights in Quito. Tour architectural treasures and stand with one foot in either hemisphere at the Equator.

In addition, there is a six-night post-program opportunity to visit Machu Picchu, Cuzco, the Sacred Valley, and Lima.
