Hotel based Galapagos Tours

Our special Hotel based Tours combine your Galapagos adventures with the comfort of a hotel. They are a good choice for those who don’t like to visit the Galapagos Islands on a cruise boat and we recommend to stay a couple of days extra before or after a cruise. Stay in one of the small charming villages of the inhabited islands Sta. Cruz, San Cristobal, Isabela or Floreana and enjoy life.

 

 

You stay in a hotel of your choice and visit the Galapagos National Park

on Day Tours to the visitor sites around inhabited islands.

Bilingual naturalist guides show you the wonders of Galapagos on interpretive

walks and boat trips. Or just relax on one of the wonderful beaches…

Discover the amazing underwater world of the Galapagos Marine Reserve

on daily snorkeling or dive trips. For more details check our chapter Diving.

Enjoy a nice dinner in one of the open air restaurants, a cool beer or cocktail

in one of the bars or go dancing to the rhythms of Latin-American music…

 

The tours below are designed for people with interest in Wildlife & Natural History

Containing activities for all abilities like easy hiking, swimming and snorkeling

The Hotels on the Galapagos Islands offer different standards and options.
