New Weeklong Glamping and Island-Hopping Trip to the Galapagos Islands

Blue-Footed Boobies in the Galapagos IslandsNervous about taking a cruise again, but still want to check out those century-old tortoises, far too social sea lions, and colorful blue-footed boobies in the Galapagos Islands this year? Well, you’re in luck. Two of the finest properties in the Galapagos Islands, Scalesia Lodge on Isabela Island and Finch Bay Hotel on Santa Cruz have teamed up to create an exciting 8-day land-based itinerary. The $4658 per person staring price, double occupancy, includes all lodging, meals, inter-island flights, day trips aboard Yacht Sea Lion, glamping in luxury tents up in the highlands of Isabela Island, snorkeling with sea turtles and other marine wildlife, hiking active volcanoes, and visiting the Charles Darwin Research Station and tortoise breeding facility, which I remember fondly from my travels to the islands. Not included in the price is round-trip airfare from Guayaquil or Quito to Baltra Island, entrance fee to the Galapagos Islands National Park ($100), alcohol, and tips. Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands are now open to vaccinated visitors, so if you’re ready to go, let ActiveTravels know and you’ll be on your way!
