When journeying across Santa Cruz into the highlands, the visitors are delighted by the island's variety of life and geology. Beginning at the coast and travelling across Santa Cruz, the road departs from Puerto Ayora climbing through the agricultural lands and into the mist covered forests. Santa Cruz possesses all of the various life zones present in the archipelago. As you travel through these zones birders are enchanted. Whether it's the bright red feathers of a vermillion flycatcher or one of Darwin's Finches; almost every bird present in the islands can be found here.

Santa Cruz offers excellent opportunities to see wild tortoises. As you walk through the forest, listen carefully for the sound of heavy footsteps and the sound of shrubs being slowly crushed as the tortoises make their way through the brush to enjoy a meal.

Tracking tortoises is not the only an exciting activity to be found in the highlands: There are also plenty of lava tubes, sinkholes and craters to explore. These formations offer a fascinating hike into the belly of the island to view its volcanic make-up.
