Galapagos Land-Based Tours

Traveling to the Galapagos Islands without taking a cruise has to raise a brow. However, the islands can be enjoyed to the fullest on a land-based “island-hopping” tour. A hotel-based tour now offers a great alternative to a cruise. By night, your accommodations will be at some of the archipelago’s finest hotels, while during the day you’ll head out to other islands to experience additional adventures. If this is what you have in mind for your Galapagos getaway, contact a Surtrek travel specialist so that we can start planning your island experience today!

What you’ll experience at on a Galapagos Land-Based Tour

On a land-based island-hopping trip, you’ll make short speedboat trips or even shuttle flights to two or three different islands, giving you a chance to explore each of these islands for a day or two. Every evening, you’ll sleep in a comfortable 1st-class or luxury hotel instead of staying on a rocking cruise ship for the rest of the night. For light sleepers, or anyone prone to motion sickness, or for those who might suffer from cabin fever after being confined on board a yacht for several days, a hotel-based itinerary might be your best option for getting the most from your once-in-a-lifetime experience in these enchanting islands.

Best Time to experience the Galapagos Islands

The hot, sunny season from January through May is generally considered the best time to visit the Galapagos due to warmer air and water temperatures, though this season is also characterized by frequent afternoon rains. From June to December, cold ocean currents from the south bring cooler weather (which some travelers will prefer) and the “Garua”, an almost perpetual light fog. There are rougher seas, though almost no rain. Read more about the best times to travel to Galapagos.

 

Getting to the Galapagos Islands

Flying from the Ecuadorian mainland cities of Quito (UIO) and Guayaquil (GYE) are the only ways to reach the Galapagos Island. One may fly into either Isla Baltra (GPS), which is used to access the central island of Santa Cruz, or into the Puerto Baquerizo Moreno airport (SCY) on San Cristobal Island in the far east of the Galapagos.
