After crossing the nesting area will reach the world colony of albatrosses, they come to the Islands to their mating ritual. Finally visit the hole where water shoots into the air to 23 meters (nearly 75 feet).

Española Island is the southernmost island of the archipelago and because of its isolation, has a high proportion of endemic fauna. Gardner Bay offers a moment of leisure at the beach with extroverted mockingbirds.

Santa Cruz is the second largest island in Galapagos, and the small town of Puerto Ayora is the economic center of the archipelago. Six different zones of vegetation can be seen here. The Research Station Charles Darwin and the Galapagos National Park offices are located on the island. Scientists, park rangers and managers make huge efforts to preserve and protect the Galapagos Islands, declared World Heritage by UNESCO. The station is also a tortoise breeding center, where tortoises of different subspecies are prepared for reintroduction to their natural habitats.

The lush vegetation of the highlands of Santa Cruz is a definite contrast with the arid landscape of the smaller lower islands. A point of interest is the famed lava tunnels, followed by a visit to the Gemelos Craters.
