Eco-Friendly Travel

Explore the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos islands are a top bucket list destination for many travelers. The 19 islands are located 563mi (906km) off the coast of Ecuador, accessible by direct flight from Quito or Guayaquil, and are now a UNESCO protected site.

Made famous as the destination that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection, the islands are home to unique plant and animal life, evolved in complete isolation from the rest of South America. With continuing seismic activity, the story of the Galapagos is not over – the islands are still physically changing, as are their plant and animal residents.

Some of the most famous inhabitants include the Galapagos giant tortoise, marine iguanas, giant cacti, endemic trees, the blue-footed booby and several species of finch, all of which you can witness on a once-in-a-lifetime Galapagos tour.

Custom Galapagos Itineraries

For an incredibly memorable Galapagos tour, Good Life Expeditions can plan the perfect itinerary depending on your preferences:

For land-lubbers, we offer the best Galapagos hotels and eco-resorts, located on two of the inhabited islands – Santa Cruz and Isabela. From there you’ll enjoy day trips to various visitor sites, getting up close with the uniquely evolved creatures of the archipelago. The Galapagos hotels, carefully hand-selected by Good Life Expeditions also offer tranquil retreats to relax in, both within the hotel premises and on the nearby beaches.

And for ocean lovers, a Galapagos cruise is one of the best ways to enjoy a Galapagos cruise. Navigating overnight, you’ll arrive at a new destination each day, maximizing the islands and sites you can visit. Our recommended cruises all offer small group sizes and excellent national park guides.
