Galapagos Cruise   

Six hundred miles off the coast of Ecuador, surrounded by open ocean, a volcanic archipelago straddles the equator. The Galapagos Islands, forged of black lava and named for the giant tortoises that are among its most noted inhabitants, are like nowhere else in the world. Home to a profuse array of wildlife, the islands offer an immersion in nature that feels primeval, where lizards and penguins and bluefooted boobies share the beaches with us, unconcerned by our presence. Herman Melville called the Galapagos “Las Encantadas,” or Enchanted Isles, an apt moniker for a realm that remains otherworldly, even today.

The activities on this trip are easy and diverse for all travelers, although getting in and out of the pangas can result in a wet boot now and again. Island trails may be rough and uneven. Those interested in longer excursions may be able to do so in the company of our Expedition Leader. Travelers are not required to participate in every activity.

Cruise among the islands’ prolific wildlife aboard an intimate, well-appointed yacht.
Swim with sea lions, sunbathe with iguanas, and kayak among whales and dolphins.
Learn about scientists’ conservation work at the Charles Darwin Research Station.
Monthly departures through 2008.

The Amazon   

Whether you want to trek through untamed trails in the jungle or just relax in a hammock surrounded by armies of fearless hummingbirds, Amazon travel offers you an exotic experience that will alter your perception of the natural world. Amazon tours take you down a winding stream in a dugout canoe and lift you high into the rainforest canopy. On your Amazon tour, you'll see howler monkeys and macaws, and possibly the elusive jaguar. Amazon lodges, such as Sacha Lodge, provide both adventure and serenity: twilight hikes in search of nocturnal creatures, a bar and lounge with a phenomenal view, exhilarating swims in pristine lakes and blackwater creeks. This is an eco-conscious Amazon adventure and a paradise for nature-lovers and birders. Adventure Life is committed to providing quality small group tours that have a positive impact on the local culture and environment. Groups-size is kept to a minimum, welcoming a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Each tour is designed to present the best of each region, at the same time allowing freedom and flexibility for the unexpected and unpredictable that make each tour, each destination, unique.
