About Your Trip

Encounter an extraordinary array of wildlife on this overland trip to the Galápagos Islands – an archipelago around 1,000km (621mi) off mainland Ecuador. From kayaking in the Itabaca Channel to snorkeling around Kicker Rock, you’ll waste no time covering the most majestic sites in five days, giving you the chance to spot sea lions, sharks and more. Marvel at giant tortoises from your idyllic glamping retreat in the Santa Cruz highlands and venture to uninhabited islands to experience a more rugged side to the Galápagos.

  • Our average group size is 10 people (max 18), which gives you all the security of being in a group whilst avoiding a crowd.
  • Our private vehicles have daily assigned seating, and every day they undergo deep cleaning of all surfaces.
  • Where possible, we use small/ boutique accommodation – this means fewer guests and reduced exposure to other travellers.
  • We require all accommodation providers to share protocols around the extra health and hygiene measures they are taking.
  • Included activities are exclusive to our group wherever possible, to minimise contact with others.
  • Covid-19 negative test results or vaccine certificates may be required. Please check the entry requirements for the destination you are travelling to. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
  • We recommend you confirm all guidance on official government sites and check that you are able to travel with your travel insurance issuer. Your travel insurance may be invalidated if you travel against government advice. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
