Volunteer Galapagos Islands

  • 10Day(s)
  • Trip Code: STQUIGAL

Home to giant tortoises, moonlike landscapes and a growing tourism industry, the Galapagos Islands is one of the world's most enticing archipelagos. Spend ten days volunteering at a local school teaching English or sports, or help protect endemic plant species as part of a wildlife preservation programme. You'll volunteer Monday to Friday at your chosen project, evenings and weekends are free for you to visit the equator line, snorkel otherworldly reefs or tour the volcanic shores.

Day 1: Quito

Settle in at your shared accommodation and explore the Ecuadorian capital of Quito.

Day 2: Equatorial Line

Get briefed on your upcoming volunteer project before tripping out to middle earth where you can stand with one foot in the northern hemisphere and one foot in the south.

Day 3: San Cristobal Island

Fly from Quito to the volcanic isle of San Cristobal in the gorgeous Galapagos where you'll have the afternoon to walk the steps of Charles Darwin back in 1835. Then it's overnight in your volunteer accommodation.

Day 4 - 8: Volunteering project

Monday to Friday you'll get stuck into your chosen volunteering project. Opt to work in a state-run nursery, playing games and caring for two to five year olds. Or strap on your sneakers and help out in a local school for young sporting champions. If language is more your thing then you may prefer to spend your time assisting in conversational English classes. Green-fingered volunteers will spend their time at a highland farm working with the Galapagos National Park to preserve endemic plants. You may even catch a glimpse of a giant Galapagos tortoise in the fields!

Day 9: San Cristobal Island

Free day to enjoy the beauty of the Galapagos. Snorkel, swim, sunbathe, search for the giant tortoise, make the most of your final free day.

Day 10: Quito

Fly back to the mainland of Ecuador and wave goodbye to your new Galapagos friends!
