WELCOME TO THE GALAPAGOS

An adventure to the Galapagos is the ultimate journey into the wild. Some 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, this remote archipelago of lush highlands, volcanic landmasses, tropical beaches and azure waters is home to the richest, most diverse ecosystem on the planet.

AN OFFSHORE ADVENTURE

The best way to explore these enchanted isles is aboard a luxury yacht. We prefer smaller boats and compact groups, which benefit from a more personalised service and highly experienced guides.

Cruises typically last four or seven nights, with the longer trips incorporating the far less visited Black Turtle Cove, Albemarle Point and Espinoza Point. For those who would rather a land-based experience, an adventure eco lodge perched on top of an extinct volcano offers stunning views of the islands which can be combined with excursions on a private yacht.

The Galapagos archipelago is also an ideal destination for families travelling with children – educational opportunities and engaging outdoor activities abound.

All aboard!

GALAPAGOS ISLANDS INSPIRATION

Select a Sense

Fresh seafood dominates, with highlights including ceviche, lobster, encocado (seafood in coconut sauce), and grilled corvina (sea bass), pargo (snapper), wahoo or mahi-mahi.

Pasillo and marimba music set the rhythm for local celebrations, while traditional dances often incorporate elements of both indigenous and Afro-Ecuadorian heritage. The islands also celebrate with distinct Galápagos music, influenced by the sea and island life, creating a vibrant atmosphere at local festivals and gatherings, such as the “Fiestas de San Cristóbal”, usually held in September.

Hand-painted ceramics and wood carvings; jewellery made from lava rocks and sea glass; and high quality, small batch coffee and chocolate.

Some recommended reading…

“The Origin of Species” by Charles Darwin is indispensable, laying the foundation for evolutionary biology. “Galápagos” by Kurt Vonnegut offers a satirical take on human evolution. For natural history enthusiasts, “The Galápagos: A Natural History” by Henry Nicholls provides an engaging overview of the islands’ unique ecosystems. Check out our bespoke reading list courtesy of the great John Sandoe.
