The past few months have been busy for Portuguese model Sara Sampaio. Between fashion month engagements on either side of the Atlantic and several other work trips bringing her around the United States and beyond, she hasn’t seemed to sit still for months. And while we’re sure it does get tiring, it certainly helps that her obligations and destinations are about as fabulous as they can get.

The 32-year-old is currently on a trip sponsored by the Leaders For Change summit, a group dedicated to the environmental conservation of the Galapagos Islands. Her trip has thus—fittingly—taken her back to the Galapagos, an incredibly idyllic tropical destination, perfect for avoiding the fall weather and pretending it’s summer once again.

Her trip has included glamorous dinner events, hikes around the island and, perhaps most importantly, fabulous days by the water and experiences with the beautiful wildlife that lives on the islands. The most recent excursion involved snorkeling and a swim with a large pod of dolphins and seals in a chic little black string bikini.

“Magical 🥹,” Sampaio captioned the series of photos and videos she posted from the surreal day. As is typical of the Galapagos, the model had the chance to see and interact with a whole host of exotic and beautiful wildlife in the vibrant blue waters—and she certainly looked glamorous while doing so.

While we’re sure she’s not quite ready for her tropical adventure to end just yet, we can’t wait to see where she heads next.
