Land-based Galapagos Islands holidays

A land-based holiday in the Galapagos Islands is an option if you prefer not to take the more popular option of living onboard a boat for your holiday. 

Being a collection of 13 main islands, boats figure strongly on most Galapagos Islands holidays. Maybe your sea legs will not put up with being on a boat all the time. You certainly have another option and that is to base yourself in a hotel on one or more of the populated islands and then take day trips from here, or go island-hopping.

Below we have shown a few ideas for land-based Galapagos island holidays, but we can tailor-make other options for you if none of these are quite what you’re looking for.

Another idea is perhaps considering taking a short 4-day cruise then adding on some time on one of the islands for a little bit of both worlds.  Chat to our Galapagos specialists and we look forward to planning the kind of trip that is right for you.
