Galapagos Islands holidays

Discover unique wildlife with no fear of man, on a cruise or land-based holiday to Ecuador's Galapagos Islands.

The Galapagos Islands

Holidays to the Galapagos Islands can be wildlife cruises on luxury yachts and ships, or land-based adventures. We’ve specialised in tailor-making Galapagos Islands holidays since 1998 and would love to help you find the right experience in this unique natural environment.

Snorkelling with sealions whilst watching turtles and marine iguanas feeding and cormorants diving is a spectacle few people will ever experience. I felt truly privileged to be in the Galapagos.

Unforgettable wildlife experiences in the Galapagos Islands

Have you ever seen a waved albatross courtship dance? Fancy swimming with curious sealions or cheeky penguins? Ready to meet a giant tortoise, climb up a volcano, or watch pelicans ‘shopping’ for fish at the local market? The Galapagos Islands are unique!

When to go to the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are a year-round destination, though there are a few different reasons why you might choose one month over another, such as: wanting to see a specific wildlife spectacle; not being a good sailor (avoid July to August); wanting good underwater visibility (December to March). Read on for much more detail about when to visit the islands and why.
