Galápagos Wildlife Tours

The Best Access To The Galápagos Islands
We’ve given two thumbs up to the land-based approach. Staying in upscale comfort on shore hasn’t even been possible until recently, and the advantages are huge. From our spacious lodgings, like the Hotel Iguana Crossing on Isabela Island, we can set out several times a day and spot blue-footed boobies, giant tortoises or a curious Galápagos penguin. But it’s not all about the wildlife; there’s plenty of time for snorkeling, sea kayaking, a private tour and tasting at a family-owned coffee plantation, and a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Center to rediscover his theories of natural selection that put the Galápagos on the map.
The World’s Best Wildlife Encounter

Start your days with a walk on the beach, a dip in the pool or a walk among flamingos and other wildlife easily reached from your perfectly-sited seafront boutique inns.
Included Immersive Activities
Paddle kayaks over turquoise waters where manta rays and reef sharks glide below. Take a small fishing boat to explore Tintoreras to snorkel with the world's only warm water penguins.
