Biking and Hiking Tour of the Galapagos Islands

On this memorable island tour, you get to bike to the Cerro Mesa Ecological Reserve, walk along its trails exploring the flora and fauna, and enjoy the spectacular views of the island!

We leave from Puerto Ayora and travel to the higher part of Santa Cruz Island, where we mount our bikes and ride to Cerro Mesa Ecological Reserve. Here, we enjoy a picturesque hike along its paths, admiring the wildlife and taking in the spectacular views of the island and its surroundings from the lookout point.
