Galapagos holidays & tours

“It was only as I set foot on the first of the Galapagos Islands that I fully came to understand that the wildlife has little or no fear of humans. It’s not that the birds and animals are tame; they simply treat us like another species sharing their world, and that is magical!”

Jon Cable

“I wanted so much to see blue-footed boobies before I went to the Galapagos – and I did – but the red-footed ones won the day for me. Amazingly beautiful and amusing”

Wendy Scott

There is never a bad time to visit the Galapagos Islands. The dry season is roughly July to December, with temperatures around 16-23°c. The rainy season is from about January to June, when temperatures are about 20-28°c. However there could be a month that is more suitable for you depending on what you’re hoping to experience.
