Reina Silvia itineraries explained

Onboard the Reina Silvia you have two unique itineraries to choose from. Note that neither itinerary can be split, the reason for this is to provide a more intimate, hassle-free and non-stop week-long journey to suit nature enthusiasts.

The 8-day Eastern Route visits both Española and Genovesa considered to be two of the top five islands to visit in the Galapagos and Bartholomew where you can take the quintessential selfie with Pinnacle Rock in the background.

The 8-day Western Route visits Isabela and Fernandina islands which are always the most sought after islands in the archipelago.

Connoisseur Tip:

Both itineraries aboard the Reina Silvia are top-notch. I would argue that the Western Route is truly amazing and my personal recommendation. This week-long itinerary visits the sought after islands of the West, Isabela, and Fernandina in style. Making an unorthodox stop at Floreana to create a perfect itinerary.
