Luxury Land Tours in the Galapagos Islands
Private beach time in the Galapagos

As a tour company, Galakiwi operates land tours with a focus on offering above average levels of comfort for our regular travelers. When it comes to some groups, such as anniversary or wedding celebrations, we can elevate the comfort level of hotels and services to provide a more luxurious experience.

So what do we do different on a Luxury Land Tour in the Galapagos Islands, compared to our normal adventure tours?

More Flights, Less Boats

Emetebe Airlines in the Galapagos

When it comes time to travel between the islands, almost every Galapagos visitor uses boats. Whether it be a cruise boat or a ferry boat, you’re spending hours at sea.

To save time, and provide more comfort, Galakiwi uses inter-island flights to go between Isabela Island, Santa Cruz Island and San Cristobal Island.

Private Snorkel, Dive, or Fishing Charters

What is your passion? Fishing? Diving? Snorkeling?

When it comes time to snorkel with the sea lions, or dive with the sharks, you’ll always find yourself in the water with a group of 10-15 other travelers.

To avoid this, we can charter the snorkel trip boat to be exclusive to just your small group. More room, more privacy, more comfort for you. Interested in deep-sea fishing? We can put together a memorable Galapagos trip for you!

Send us a request for a custom Galapagos luxury tour, and we’ll take care of everything.

The Best Hotels and Lodges

Big chain hotels are not popular in the Galapagos, nor are there any large luxury resorts. There are, however, some very well-appointed lodges and boutique hotels offering high levels of service. Some of these are located away from the coast or towns, making them more intimate and remote. Other great hotel options are located right where the action is. Depending what you prefer, we’ll make sure you enjoy the best sleep and service possible.

Personal Attention to Detail

Because Galakiwi is based on San Cristobal Island, and has local staff throughout the Galapagos, we can personally ensure and verify ahead of time that all services and activities will be up to both our standards, and yours. You don’t have to worry about dealing with some foreign company, we’re able to meet you right there in the islands.

Specially Arranged Meals

We like to include home-cooked meals in the islands for many of our group tours. If you’re looking for something special, beyond the restaurants found in the towns of the Galapagos, we can work with you to come up with something unique and different. Of course, if you want suggestions on the best food in town, we can help with that as well.

Lasting Memories

Unless you’re a photographer, sometimes you just want to soak up the experiences and not worry about taking photos or videos along the way. Galakiwi can provide a professional photographer or videographer for part or all of your Galapagos visit. After your visit you’ll come away with great memories, plus a special media selection to take home with you.

Nightly Freedom

One of the most loved benefits of land-based tours in the Galapagos is having more freedom on your vacation. Without being confined to a boat or a room, the nights are yours to enjoy. Some after dinner gelato? Drinks at a nice bar? A romantic walk along the waterfront? 

Tell us what you want most on your luxury Galapagos trip, and we’ll make it happen. Contact Galakiwi today.
