Territories Ecuador Afoot In The Galapagos : Journey Highlights





Land-based journeys have evolved as a wonderful alternative to traditional Galapagos Islands boat cruises. Lodge-to-lodge island hopping trips let you immerse in a select few islands, and allow for more-energetic days of hiking, kayaking, snorkeling—and on this very active trip, even standup paddleboarding! You can also forget about seasickness or the sometimes awkward process of getting off the larger boat onto a smaller one for “wet landings” at the beach. (These are just some of the reasons land-based trips can be a super option for families.) This naturalist-led Off the Beaten Path Galapagos Small Group Adventure takes you to three of the most interesting islands for close encounters with the archipelago’s iconic wildlife, like giant tortoises, boobies, marine iguanas, and much more. Your days are filled with unique explorations, active island fun, and nice accommodations.

  • Wildlife: You’re likely to see the whole list, including sea lions, giant tortoises, marine turtles, blue-footed boobies, albatross, frigate birds, marine iguanas, land iguanas, penguins, and more.
  • Active days:This is a real multi-sport adventure, with hiking and walking, snorkeling, swimming, biking, sea kayaking, and standup paddleboarding.
  • Naturalist guides: Your guides are professionally trained naturalists who can help you understand the significance of this extraordinary place.
  • Land-based experience: If you’re not a big boat person, this is the way to see the Galapagos Islands. Your accommodations never rock!

Your exceptional naturalist guide makes sure you have an outstanding explorer’s experience in the Land of Darwin. —Cory Lawrence, Off the Beaten Path CEO
