THE GALÁPAGOS BY BIKE
While most visitors to the Galápagos Islands explore via ship, the tour company Tripsite is offering a new 10-day trip there via bike. Riders will pedal over 62 miles across four islands: San Cristobal, Floreana, Isabela and Santa Cruz. Aimed at fit travelers, the trip is rated difficult and includes multisport options such as hiking up a volcano, kayaking and snorkeling with sea lions as well as excursions via motorboat. The trip costs $4,999 a person, double occupancy, with two 2016 departures, May 13 and Oct. 21.
