    Visiting Galapagos by land is a great option for those who are more interested in hiking than ocean activities, those who get seasick, or those who want to combine land and sea into one Galapagos journey. Take a look through our 3 lodging tiers below to see how we organize and recommend accommodations. We do yearly site checks at all these hotels, glamping sites and villas to ensure consistent quality of service.

    A private charter offers you and your group total privacy and exclusivity. Although not inexpensive, if the group size is right (12 passengers or more) the total cost can match or beat cabins on a shared vessel. The Galapagos is one of those rare, pristine places on Earth that offers a huge range of transformative experiences in nature. Having your own boat means your itinerary can be any combination of experiences on any of the islands. Rely on us to match your group with the perfect yacht or catamaran.

    Here’s a Sample Day Aboard a Private Charter

    What’s Included: Entire Boat for your and your group ● All Meals prepared by your private chef ● VIP airport reception & departure ● Transfer to and from boat to airport ● Completely custom itinerary and route ● As many Insider Access Experiences as you have time for ● 24/7 assistance during your journey and pre-departure

    Our Luxury Yachts consist of Mega Catamarans (M/C) and Mega Yachts (M/Y) that have larger rooms and larger private decks than our First Class category. Similar to our First Class boats, Luxury Yachts are a shared boat with private cabins for rent and fixed itineraries. Expect upgraded amenities, jacuzzis on every boat, exclusive adventure experiences, world-class food prepared daily by your private chef, and more privacy. Boat itineraries are a duration of either 4, 5, or 8 days.

    What’s Included: Private cabins in a shared boat (Suites or Master Rooms available on each boat) ● All meals prepared by an on-board chef ● VIP airport reception & departure ● Transfer to and from boat to airport ● Fixed itinerary and route (usually 2 routes to choose from) ● 1 or 2 shared experiences with a naturalist guide per day as included in the fixed itinerary (exclusive locations only available on our Luxury Yachts) ● 24/7 assistance during your journey and pre-departure

    What’s included: Private cabins in a shared boat (standard rooms) ● All meals prepared by an on-board chef ● Airport reception & departure ● Transfer to and from boat to airport ● Fixed itinerary and route (usually 2 routes to choose from) ● 1 or 2 shared experiences with a naturalist guide per day as included in the fixed itinerary ● 24/7 assistance during your journey and pre-departure

    Ideal for multi-gen families wanting privacy and time together. The villas we partner with come equipped with speedboats, fishing experiences, a chef and the ability to select from a variety of tours and activities. If you’re going to do a boat cruise, having a villa arranged for a few days after your cruise ends is also a great way to incorporate some less structured downtime; this also allows travelers to witness the islands from a different perspective.

    These are the top hotels in the Galapagos Islands in terms of quality of service, location and design. Galapagos Safari Camp, one of our favorite glamping accommodations, is more rustic than it is luxurious, but it’s a special experience: you will likely awake to a giant Galapagos Tortoise eating grass beneath your camping platform. Finch Bay and Pikaia glamping sites provide comfort and style, each with a world-class pool and exclusive experiences that you won’t find elsewhere in the archipelago.

    What’s Included: Private Room (or property buyout is possible at Galapagos Safari Camp) ● Breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner ● VIP Airport Reception & departure ● Daily private excursions ● Custom itinerary designed by one of our expert Trip Designers ● 24/7 assistance during your journey and pre-departure
