This 6-day cruise through the Galapagos Islands was tailor-made for wildlife enthusiasts with a taste for luxury. Sail around the western side of the UNESCO-listed archipelago aboard the ‘Odyssey,' a first-class motor yacht that feels like a hotel and accommodates only 16 passengers. Explore Santiago, where Darwin spent much of his time, as well as remote reaches like Fernandina and Isabela. Hike to breeding sites for sea lions, penguins, fur seals and countless birds — including the famous flightless cormorant, considered a ‘holy grail of evolution.' Beaches, volcanoes, tidal pools and rocky islets are all part of your exploration.
