Galapagos Land-Based Tours

Galapagos land-based tours and holidays offer all the islands’ incredible wildlife with the luxury of sleeping in hotels and freedom to move around.

Away from the confines of a Galapagos cruise, a land-based tour is ideal for a family holiday and those who suffer seasickness. More time on land  means more time to explore on foot or by bike, or take time out to relax on a beach.

There are dozens of snorkels and kayaks to enjoy too, so you get to see Galapagos’ famous and iconic marine life.

We have guided small group tours or tailor made, bespoke, private itineraries to satisfy the most active of land-based travellers.

Programme in the activities you prefer, explore on land by day and relax in the evenings in the hotel of your choice.

We offer many categories of hotels from two star up to five star luxury, tailoring the holiday to your time, tastes and budget.

Snorkel with playful sea lions, walk next to giant tortoises or kayak with rays – you’ll go home with a lifetime of memories from the best ever Galapagos holiday.

Families are welcome on the Galapagos, and what a perfect location for a family holiday. Ask us about specific activities for kids. From watching spitting marine iguanas, snorkelling with sea lions, playing on the beach with whale bones, surfing or hanging out with local kids there is plenty to do.

A range of local restaurants with especially good pizzas make the islands perfectly set up for family holidays. Top quality restaurants cater for couples, honeymoons and special celebrations too.
