The Galapagos are of course all about the rich variety of marine and land creatures, as well as the harsh but beautiful volcanic landscape. Now guests at Galapagos Safari Camp can combine the two with getting fit – and finding their inner zen - on a yoga and surf safari.

Saskia and Will are here to help give you the inside track.

Believe it or not, yoga is a great way to learn to surf. Not only is it a way of learning to control breathing (especially useful when surfing), but the moves can mirror those in surfing. The first day explains why, and after that guests focus on balance, paddle stroke (or 'steering the soul of the surf board') and master the art of standing up (otherwise known, in yoga terms, as 'one breath one motion pop up').

After a few days of strengthening the core while learning the key skills of surfing, it is time to take to the water. Spend the day with an instructor on a long, white sandy beach, taking breaks to look for wildlife with a naturalist guide.

Wildlife is an integral part of the trip, and the daily yoga is broken up with trips to see some of the Galapagos's infamous inhabitants. See giant tortoises and an abundance of birdlife - including the blue booted booby, finch and vermilion flycatcher - as well as a number of endemic plants. The Galapagos Marine Reserve is the second largest in the world and snorkelling with sea lions here is a real highlight. Other activities on offer include kayaking and mountain biking.
