Be prepared for the best adventure on “Land” at of course at “Sea” during your Galapagos Adventure Retreat! You will be enjoying daily yoga on beautiful Santa Cruz Island plus each day a new adventure to different islands during our retreat. We will be seeing Lava Tunnels, Cloud Forests, swimming/snorkeling with sea turtles, penguins, and the most amazing ocean life imaginable.

This is an adventure of a lifetime lead by Michelle Gierst & Certified Galapagos Naturalists to give each and everyone of you a detailed experience of these islands that so many people are dying to travel to and experience.  The Galapagos Islands feature unique wildlife and plant life that first drew the attention of Charles Darwin back in the 1830’s and still continues to serve as important subjects for biologists and scientists all over the globe. The Galapagos Islands have native reptiles, mammals, birds and plant life that have developed specific characteristics not found anywhere else in the world.
