Galapagos Islands: Land-based island hopping

Visit Us

Land-based island hopping

Save £100 per person >>
Special Offer:


The volcanic, ruggedly beautiful  Galápagos Islands  are home to giant tortoises, iguanas, penguins, frigate-birds, waved albatrosses and blue-footed boobies as well as a wealth of rare flora. But the lava strewn cliffs and forested mountains, lagoons and swamps and bleach-white beaches are exquisitely beautiful in themselves.

Most visitors discover the islands on a 3-10 day cruise, dropping anchor at a selection of islands and making wet landings to explore for an hour or so with a naturalist guide. This used to be the only way of exploring the islands but now we can offer you the flexibility of a land-based adventure. Not for you the rolling sea and rigidity of a fixed timetable limiting your experience on each island…  

This way, you can visit 3 very different islands, hopping from one to the other by speedboat:  that alone is exhilarating.  You’ll get a more comprehensive, intimate and diverse knowledge of each: not only will you enjoy observing the unique wildlife and natural landscapes but you can also take part in active adventures: hiking, kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddling.
