Around 600 miles and a flight of two hours from the Ecuadorian mainland lie the enigmatic Galapagos Islands. An archipelago of 21 islands and over 100 rocks and islets with only 5 permanently inhabited by human beings. A visit to the Galapagos Islands is a must for anyone who seeks extraordinary encounters with wild mammals, birds, lizards and the underwater marine environment. Couple this with the living and constantly evolving volcanic landscape whilst walking in the footsteps of Charles Darwin.

A visit to the islands is foremostly an educational experience, strict regulations are imposed by the Galapagos National Park whereby only certain sites can be visited on the islands and need always be accompanied by certified National Park Guides. However, there is also room for recreation…swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding offer incredible up-close encounters with sea lions, turtles and a mesmerising collection of colourful fish.

We only recommend a handful of boats for up to 7-8 day cruises, which all offer the above activities with luxury, comfort and excellent food and wine. Also, and most importantly safety is taken very seriously with exceptional crew and naturalist guides. So as not to rush the Galapagos experience, we also highly recommend either a pre or post trip land based stay at one of our personally selected lodges, allowing you to reflect and relax after your journey to the islands.

Whichever way you choose to visit the Galapagos, we are always on hand and have the experience to advise on the best options in order to make the most of this once in a lifetime destination.

The Galapagos Islands lying across the equator can be visited all year round. Read More

The Galapagos Islands lying across the equator can be visited all year round. There are two distinct seasons however: the warm/wet season is between January and June and the cool/dry season from July to December.
There are a number of factors determining the many climatic zones around each island mainly due to each island's creation, altitude and effect of the trade winds and the Humboldt current.
In all the years that I have been arranging adventures to the Galapagos in all months of the year I have never had a complaint about the weather!
