Galapagos Islands Resorts & Lodges
If you prefer to visit the Galapagos Islands without spending too much time at sea, then opting for a land-based tour from one of the archipelago’s luxurious Galapagos Island resorts with the ability to go island hopping is a great alternative or, indeed, addition to a cruise. So if you want to experience the full diversity and beauty of the Galapagos by day whilst sleeping in comfortable rooms or luxurious tents at night, look no further.
Sleep under canvas in the lush forested highlands of Isabela island at Scalesia lodge, with its breath-taking views of the out across the vast Pacific Ocean and neighboring volcano Santo Tomás. Or on Santa Cruz, relax in the contemporary Finch Bay Eco Hotel away from the crowds, but close to the beach and within easy reach of neighboring islands thanks to their own exclusive ‘Sea Lion’ yacht, or immerse yourself in nature at the African safari-style Galapagos Safari Camp – a welcoming family-owned tented resort nestled in 135 acres of farmland, rich in birdlife with sweeping hillside and ocean vistas. Alternatively consider a stay on the crater of the island’s extinct volcano at the incredible Pikaia lodge, boasting its own giant tortoise reserve, stunningly-situated infinity pool, gourmet restaurant, stylish bar and heavenly spa, as well as small group excursions aboard their private yacht.
