Description of Galapagos family holiday

The Galapagos Islands are home to wildlife and landscapes found nowhere else on earth, and this family holiday presents a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in this incredible living museum. The whole family can enjoy watching an all-star cast of birds, reptiles and mammals in their natural environment as they feed, doze and play around the mountains and coastline of Isla San Cristobal and Isla Santa Cruz.

There are too many incredible creatures to mention, but highlights include majestic giant tortoises, Galapagos crabs, marine iguanas, frigate birds, whales, dolphins and sharks. You could also choose to get up close and personal under the water by snorkelling with playful sea lions.

On this trip you’ll be joined by likeminded families from across the world. An experienced guide will lead your trip and help both the adults and the kids make the most of the experience. No physical preparation is necessary and all activities will be within reach of each member of the family.

Holiday type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Travelling our way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

In the Galapagos we use locally owned transport, locally owned hotels and local guides. All rubbish is collected and disposed of responsibly. While on the trip we visit the Darwin Research Centre where talks are given about the maintenance and preservation of the Galapogos Islands. Using small boats ensures minimal disruption to the wildlife and ecosystems of the Galápagos. All visitors to the Galápagos Islands must pay a Park Tax which is used to protect this incredible natural paradise.

Responsible code: Being Responsible is at the heart of everything our company does - full details of our code can be found on our website. The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.

Giving something back: We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.

Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a ‘take in, take back out’ waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.
