Our Exclusive Small-Group Nature Immersion Led by the Islands' Best Guides
Six hundred miles off the coast of Ecuador, surrounded by open ocean, a volcanic archipelago straddles the equator. The Galapagos Islands, forged of black lava and named for the giant tortoises that are among its most noted inhabitants, are like nowhere else in the world. Home to a profuse array of wildlife, the islands offer an immersion in nature that feels primeval, where iguanas and penguins and blue-footed boobies share the beaches with us, unconcerned by our presence. Herman Melville called the Galapagos Las Islas Encantadas—the "Enchanted Isles"—an apt moniker for a realm that remains otherworldly, even today. Choose between three intimate yachts: our classic M/Y Letty, the ultra-deluxe M/C Athala II, or the brand-new, state-of-the-art M/V Origin.
- Our flagship itinerary is simply the best week-long experience of the Galapagos, with the most highly trained naturalist guides in the islands, and the lowest guide-to-traveler ratio
- Snorkel with sea lions, swim with turtles, sunbathe with iguanas, watch for whales and dolphins, and spend a night with wild tortoises at our private camp in the misty forest on Santa Cruz
- You'll also enjoy a 2-night stay at a historic colonial hacienda in the Andean Highlands—the perfect cultural and geographic complement to your Galapagos adventure
