Land based Galapagos Island holidays



Land based galapagos ISLAND holidays

Being a collection of 13 main islands, boats figure strongly on most Galapagos Island holidays.  However perhaps a week’s cruise is just not right for you. Maybe your sea legs will not put up with being on a boat all the time. You certainly have another option and that is to base yourself in a hotel on one or more of the populated islands and then take day trips from here, or go island-hopping.

Below we have shown a few ideas for land based Galapagos island holidays, but we can tailor make other options for you if none of these are quite what you’re looking for.

Another idea is perhaps considering taking a short 4-day cruise then adding on some time on one of the islands for a little bit of both worlds.  Chat to us and we look forward to planning the kind of trip that is right for you.
