5 Days / 4 Nights


Upon arrival at Baltra Airport, a naturalist guide will be waiting to take you to Santa Cruz Island. On this island and on our way to Puerto Ayora, where you will be staying, we will make a stop for lunch at the highlands where we can hopefully find giant tortoises. This will be your first encounter with the wonderful wildlife of the archipelago.

In the afternoon, after you have settled in the hotel, we will have a relaxing yoga session.

The day will start with an energetic yoga session followed by a healthy breakfast. To continue with the exploration of the island, we will take a walk through the dry forest that leads to Tortuga Bay Beach. Here we can relax and enjoy the incredible natural environment along with sea iguanas, finches and more. We will bring snacks and drinks for lunch at the beach.

After we return to town you’ll have the afternoon off so you can enjoy the local culture on your own.


We will sail to one of the islands near Santa Cruz, where we will snorkel and enjoy the wonderful landscapes and local fauna. At night, we can enjoy a meditation session to end our day.



After a delicious breakfast, we will head to the highlands to start our day with a cycling tour. The route includes the visit of lava tunnels, a farm to learn about the local production with a final stop cycling downhill to the beautiful El Garrapatero beach.

Back in Puerto Ayora, we will go to lunch in a local restaurant, and in the afternoon, we will end our day with a yoga session.


The last day of your retreat will star with a final yoga session followed by an energetic breakfast to prepare you to your trip back home.
