Description of Galapagos land based adventure holiday
There are wildlife adventures and then there’s a Galapagos land based adventure holiday and unless you’ve experienced this incredible archipelago, close up, then believe you me, you really don’t know what you’re missing.
Experience the marine and land-based animals that have excited and enthralled biologists and nature lovers since Darwin’s day with opportunities to explore on two feet, two wheels and on-board a boat all adding to the excitement of a Galapagos land based adventure holiday.
From Darwin’s discoveries that inspired his theory of evolution to just marvelling at the wealth of animal activity on: San Cristobal, Floreana, Isabela and Baltra, this ten day Galapagos land based adventure holiday presents a once-in-a-lifetime chance to peel back the layers of an untouched natural world.

Reviewed on 17 May 2019 by Elizabeth WillsonA once in a lifetime experience. Every day was another surprising wildlife encounter - snorkeling with penguins and sea turtles, hiking among (and swimming with) the marine iguanas or standing two feet away from a pair of blue footed boobies doing their beautiful, intricate mating dance.

PlanetThe Galapagos was the first natural site to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site - 1979. It is also a Biosphere Reserve and Whale Sanctuary. The Galapagos is a worldwide model for eco-tourism. Here you are able to visit an area of great natural beauty and encounter, at close quarters, animal species that have no fear of humans. Strict regulations govern all tourist activities and are rigidly enforced and tourist numbers are restricted.
For every visitor we take to the Galapagos we donate £25 to the Galapagos Conservation Trust www.gct.org who work to protect and conserve the Galapagos islands. We are also an active member of IGTOA, a non profit association of travel companies, conservation organizations, and other groups that seek a lasting protection of the Galapagos Islands. We lobby for conservation, fund projects, and promote and practice sustainable tourism.
We don’t use plastic bottled water, no rubbish is left anywhere by us or guides. No wildlife is disturbed and we operate a strict policy leaving the animals and flora alone.
PeopleWe employ local staff all the way on the trip, only use hotels owned by locals, all the food is sourced locally, we take people to locally-owned restaurants to help keep the money in the islands.
We are supporting two charities, the UK registered charity Amantani - which is very much in keeping with our ethos of small scale, targeted help that is educational & sustainable - and Huchuy Yachaq, a Cusco-based project which we support by paying a for a full time teacher. A percentage of our income goes to support those projects.
