Galapagos Islands:Adventure, Wildlife and Service

Visiting San Cristobal, Santa Cruz and Isabella Islands, we spend 11 days on the Galapagos Islands exploring the turquoise waters and abundant wildlife. Snorkeling, sea kayaking, surfing, biking and community service give us the opportunity to see the islands from a variety of angles. With plenty of time in the water and on land we see plenty of sea turtles, tortoises, manta rays, blue footed boobies and much more! Taking a brief break from adventure, we spend two days working at a Special Education Center, helping local school children with special needs. In addition, we partner with the Charles Darwin Center to assist in the conservation of Galapagos Tortoises. The most all-encompassing Galapagos Teen Trip.

Organic Farm: Volunteer at a Local Farm

In the tropics of Ecuador’s Pacific Coast, we spend five-days volunteering at Río Muchacho, a self-sustaining, zero-waste organic farm. Community service and environmental awareness is our focus as we learn about compost and crop rotation while tending to the farm’s horses, chickens, and guinea pigs. Even though the seeds we plant will not mature for months, all the food eaten on the farm is grown locally. Campers leave inspired by the farm’s ecologically friendly practices and are ready to start gardens of their own! A carefully selected stop on Bold Earth’s Ecuador Teen Trip!

Quito: Community Service Sights

Quito’s bustling markets and colonial architecture are the backdrop for our final three days in Ecuador. We explore the palaces and plazas of this historic city, and visit the Equator line monument and museum. Our trip concludes as we partner with a local school charity, Ninos de la Calle, to participate in a service project dedicated to helping the under-privileged children of Quito. An authentic way to end Bold Earth’s Ecuador Teen Trip.
