8-day trip

Family Galapagos Safari

From 8200 PP


A family adventure to Ecuador

The Galapagos is a haven for nature lovers.

Pristine volcanic islands, sand beaches and clear waters where a cast of fearless wildlife thrives – dinosaur-like giant tortoises and swimming iguanas, sea lions as friendly as Labradors, diving blue-footed boobies, scarlet throated frigate birds, sea turtles, flitting Darwin’s finches, countless tropical fish and many more besides.

There is nowhere else quite like it on earth and it can be a life-changing experience for those who venture here. However, for families with young children, the traditional Galapagos yacht-based cruise may not be ideal. So, for this trip, we’ve paired a relaxing stay at a chocolate and horse farm on mainland Ecuador with five nights at a safari-style camp on Santa Cruz Island, the ideal base for land and water-based excursions that can be tailored to your family.
