walking boots

hi do I need to take walking boots or can I get away with comfy trainers? am doing the galapagos in darwins footsteps

also can you hire fins / snorkling equipment...I have my own snorkle + mask but no fins 

and....is there anyone else going via Amsterdam....I hate connecting flights, have a fear of missing the plane!

Great to hear that you're getting organised for TPG! We strongly advise taking walking boots on this trip due to the volcanic landscape that you'll be walking on, the lava rocks can be very sharp/rough and so strong footwear will be beneficial. We also suggest taking your own snorkel gear - there is the possibilty to hire equipment in Quito or Galapagos but occasionally it can be difficult to get the exact size.  Hope this helps with your questions!

Kind regards, Vicky (Trip Manager) 


Hi daylduf, I'm not sure if you'll see this post as yours was a while ago but I just wanted to ask you how the walking was?  I'm debating booking this trip but I'm rubbish at scrambling over rocks - generally not very sure-footed!  I'd love to know how hard it actually is.
