Galapagos Islands

Wildlife holidays in the Galapagos Islands

Our Galapagos Islands specialist recommends...

‘If you have the time and budget then a 14 night/15 cruise is the way to go for any keen naturalist/photographer, especially since the Galapagos National Park streamlined and improved the boat itineraries, minimising criss-crossing and wasted time. There’s never been a better time to visit. A Galapagos cruise really is a unique experience – expect to be enthralled by the approachable wildlife, varied walks and islands and high quality snorkelling in clear (if slightly chilly!) seas. Add the Amazon extension to Sacha Lodge for a completely different dimension to your holiday in Ecuador.’

Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are very special, this was an amazing trip. The birds, animals, ship, people and weather all combined to make it a truly enchanted journey.
An excellent holiday that exceeded my expectations. The Naturetrek group was extremely good and we all hit it off! Darwin Alvarez was a brilliant guide, superlatives are not enough. He was easy going, very knowledgeable and patient, a credit to the Galapagos national park service.
My recent trip to The Galapgaos/Sacha Lodge was everything I expected it to be - and more. Two nights in Quito included a comprehensive tour of that fascinating city. Our group(just 16 people)was met at Baltra by our guide, Darwin Alvarez, and our tour of the islands started immediately with a trip to see giant tortoises, followed by a lovely lunch, before boarding the Cachalote, our floating 'home' for the next two weeks. Darwin was just superb and his enthusiasm was infectious; his knowledge added even more to the experience of visiting so many of these very special islands. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew of the Cachalote either, with the captain willingly changing course if something interesting was spotted in the water. The chef catered for all/any special dietary requirements, even making me a glorious chocolate and nut cake for my birthday which occurred halfway through the cruise of the islands, and Richard's cocktails, to celebrate crossing the Equator, were something else! Sacha Lodge was a totally different experience but equally as outstanding. The long and varied journey to even reach it was an adventure in itself and again, nothing was too much trouble for either the staff or the guides who took us out two or three times a day, either on foot or by canoe, to experience this truly magical part of the world. Truly a holiday of a lifetime.
