Galápagos Islands

Marvel at
Mother Nature’s spectacle on these storied islands

Almost everyone goes to the Galápagos for those bewitching critters—proud blue-footed boobies, lolling seals, enormous tortoises. What surprises many of our travelers is the marvelous mix of landscapes, from cloud-forested mountains to beachy outposts. Our trips give you plenty of time to appreciate both flora and fauna, be it snorkeling with merrily circling sea lions or hiking beside an extinct volcano. What will stick with you long after you return home, we suspect, is the serenity of this unvarnished slice of Mother Nature.

Galapagos with GeoEx

Imagine not just exploring this magnificently remote archipelago, but doing so with your closest friends and family, with your own naturalist guide, in the style and pace that suits you best. Perhaps you want to kayak at every opportunity or have always dreamed of photographing posturing frigate birds. Maybe you envision sipping sundowners on the deck of your very own yacht with a personable crew dedicated to your comfort. Or staying at a luxury tented safari camp with resident naturalists at your beck and call, and Santa Cruz Island’s bountiful wildlife at your doorstep.

Then again you may wonder, why not combine Latin America’s top natural and cultural wonders: the Galápagos and Machu Picchu? Why not indeed, we say. We’re ready to put together your out-of-this-world Custom Trip to the Enchanted Islands. We’ll navigate the ins and outs of your Galápagos travels (including the sticky park regulations), make sure your itinerary sings to your interests, pair you with the right guides and accommodations, suggest ways to make it even more phenomenal, and happily tie in your island adventure with other travels.
