Santa Cruz Highlands

Get Elevated on Santa Cruz

The Highlands of Santa Cruz offer a lush contrast to the beaches and arid lowlands found elsewhere on the island. With one of our Naturalist Guides as your escort you will visit some of the highlights of the ‘Parte Alta’.

A stop at the twin craters Los Gemelos is one of the first sights on your highlands tour. A visit to the Moreno family farm, Las Primicias, provides the opportunity to marvel at the celebrated Giant Galapagos Tortoise roaming in its natural habitat.

You can also explore a cavernous underground Lava Tunnel where you can view one of the geological wonders of our volcanic islands. You will also be able to explore some of the “backroads” of Santa Cruz on the way to Puerto Ayora.
