Discover the Northern and Central Galapagos Islands onboard Alya

Enjoy a 5-day cruise aboard the Alya, exploring some of the central and northern islands of this fascinating archipelago. Follow the naturalist bilingual guide as they take you through the shallow channels of Black Turtle Cove, home to green sea turtles, and to the top of Bartolome Island, taking in the volcanic landscapes and the array of Galapagos wildlife on your way. A highlight of this route is the penguins on Bartolome Island, otherwise only seen on Fernandina and the western Isabela. When it is time to put your feet up, the Alya catamaran has a stunning solarium where you can sit and unwind whilst reflecting on your sightseeing.
