Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are an ideal year-round holiday destination for wildlife, nature and adventure travel lovers.

You are guaranteed to see giant tortoises, sea lions, iguanas and blue-footed boobies to name a few, plus amazing volcanic formations and stunning beaches.

While snorkelling expect to see sharks, turtles, rays, schools of fish, and for the lucky - hammerheads and possibly whales. 

Cruises and hotel-based options

You can choose to cruise around the island on a yacht or stay in hotels and zip around the highlights in speedboats.

With cruises, there are two different 8-day options, with some boats offering shorter 4-5 day and longer 11-15 day cruise options. The most popular option is the 8 day cruise, read all about it in Alan's Galapagos Blog.

Hotel-based trips vary in length too. We have set groups departures as well as being experts at tailor made and private itineraries, read the Windsors' blog here.

Check our Galapagos Islands guide, our weather page and our diving page.
