What we're about

Meet your traveling friends! We are building a community of friends, not only from the Southern California area, but from all over the world, who like to travel.

If you love to travel I'm sure you've been there: You decide on a place you want to go to. Maybe you even start planning the trip. Then you try to find friends to go with you, and everyone has all sorts of reasons (excuses...) why they can't go. Or even worse, sometimes you even schedule the trip, and your friends pull out!

Well, that's why we started 1000 Treks Travel Community. We are a group of friends who like to travel. We are welcoming, we are fun, we are inclusive; and, most of all, we want to see everything there is to see and do everything there is to do!

Join us and let's build a community to see the world together!

Well, it looks like we are finally and safely getting back on in the water overseas, and we'll be doing it with one of our greatest scuba trips ever, to one of the best locations in the world for scuba: the amazing Galapagos Islands. As a silver lining of the pandemic that seems (fingers crossed) to be coming to an end, Galapagos was either closed to tourism or just partially open for just over the past year. That means over one year of very little to no human activity, allowing the fauna and flora of an already incredible place to blossom and burgeon like never before. This will truly be an opportunity we will never have again.

The Galápagos Islands are located at the junction of three major oceanic currents, creating a very nutrient rich environment that attracts all kinds of marine animals. Galápagos has been named the world's top all-around dive and best for fish life, best for big animal dive, and one of the healthiest marine environments.

Galápagos dive trips are often done via liveaboards, but we decided to make this one a land-based trip. Liveaboards can be very expensive (7,000 for 7 nights on the Aggressor, for example) and not as comfortable (many people don't enjoy staying day and night on a boat for several days). By doing a land-based trip, we will have a better all-around trip, stay more comfortably and pay a lot less. Also, by doing a land-based trip, we have more chances to explore the beautiful dryland side of this unique archipelago, which is also a must-do for travel lovers.

Highlights:

- Visit and dive daily at the two of the main inhabited islands: San Cristobal, Santa Cruz

- Do a day trip to the magnificent uninhabited Bartolomé Island, one of the most famous postcards of Galapagos.

- Dive some of the best locations in Galapagos, such as Kicker Rock, and Gordon Rocks (one of the best places in the world to see hammerheads).

- See some of the world's most fascinating animals that can only be found in Galapagos, such as the Giant Galápagos Tortoise (that live up to 200 years!), the Galápagos Land Iguana (AKA Galápagos Dragon), Galápagos Marine Iguana (and maybe get to see them swimming while we snorkel), Blue-footed Booby, Red-footed Booby, Frigate Bird, Galápagos Penguin and Galápagos Sea Lions.

- Explore unique geological wonders such as Las Grietas, Los Gemelos.

- Visit the world famous Charles Darwin Foundation, where they breed giant tortoises.

- See active volcanos, such as Sierra Negra and Volcan Chico.

- Swim at gorgeous beaches such as Tortuga Bay (named one of the world's 10 most beautiful beaches by TripAdvisor), La Loberia, and Concha de Perla Lagoon.

A great think about this trip is that we will have a completely independent land itinerary with activities every day, so us divers can bring our spouses, friends and significant others and they will have the time of their lives on land while we are out diving. Then every afternoon, we converge to spend time together.

- Have 11 chances to see the Northern Lights in some of the best places in the world. We will be all-but-guaranteed to see the Aurora not only once, but several times. Here are some of the unique and amazing ways in which we will see the Lights:

- From Abisko Sky Station in Sweden, where we will take a chairlift to what is possibly the best single spot on the planet to see the Northern Lights.

- From the Lofoten Islands, considered by many as the most beautiful background in the world for the Northern Lights.

We will also do some amazing and unique activities and have some amazing experiences unique to Scandinavia, such as:

- Go on a Finnish sauna where you can go on a sauna, come out and dip in frozen lake

- Go Ice climbing

- Ride a fatbike on the snow

- Go Ice Karting.

These activities and locations are all absolutely amazing. However, this trip will be even more amazing because we timed it in order to maximize our chances to see the Northern Lights. Displays of the Northern Lights do tend to intensify around the equinox months of March and September because the magnetic fields of the Earth and the Sun’s solar wind are more likely to be in sync. There are no guarantees, but even stronger displays are therefore more likely around the spring equinox, which be on March 19. March also tends to be the winter month with the clearest skies. New moon is March 24, which means not only we will be getting the darkest skies of the month, but also the ski will be very dark on the 19th. No promises, but are likely to see some of the most amazing Northern Lights spectacles of the season during our travel dates.
