Guests travelling to Bartolome Island are rewarded with a magnificent view. Your luxury cruise ship will anchor in Sullivan Bay, ready to take you onto the volcanic lands by Zodiac. Once you set foot on the island, there’s a boardwalk to climb consisting of almost 400 steps, so make sure you’re prepared for the walk. Along the way, you’ll pass through the arid landscapes and witness the devastation of volcanic eruption, with the chance to see lava lizards on the ground and nests of Galapagos Hawks and Blue-footed Boobies.
Once you reach the top of your climb, your view is absolutely stunning. You’ll be able to see out towards Pinnacle Rock, with the peaks of Baltra, Daphne Major and Daphne Minor all visible in the distance. It’s a spectacular panorama, and one that you absolutely must pack your camera for. And the benefit of travelling on a six star ship is that, once your day is complete, you’ve the most luxurious place to unwind, recover from your day of hiking and reminisce with like-minded passengers about the memories of the landscape that you’ll take home with you.
Bartolome Island is 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -6).
