Can Quark book all aspects of my trip, such as flights, pre- and post-trip tours, hotels and insurance?

Absolutely! We can book international and domestic flights to get you to your destination as seamlessly as possible, help you choose from various hotels and tours to extend your trip, and—most importantly— book your travel insurance. Obtaining insurance is especially important, given the remote locations we visit. It’s worth noting that Quark is one of the few companies that provides emergency evacuation insurance as part of the cost of your expedition.

What can I expect from my expedition to the Galapagos Islands?

Expect one of the best experiences of your life! Because of the diversity of the wildlife, there is always something to enjoy, and the weather is consistent thanks to the proximity to the equator and constant ocean breezes. Waters are generally calm, and the naturalists are exceptionally knowledgeable about the wildlife, which varies from island to island. You’ll typically have four to six hours each day for hiking, walking and snorkeling.
