Galapagos Island FAQs

When is the best time to visit Galapagos? Located just south of the equator, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos is a great year-round travel destination. There is no bad time to visit as the weather is pleasant and the wildlife active all year long. Note that the Christmas, New Year and Easter holidays are typically the busiest season and often carry a holiday surcharge. Aim to book at least 12 months in advance if you wish to visit the islands over the holidays.

How to tour the Galapagos Islands? The Galapagos are a remote, fragile wilderness. The best way to tour the Galapagos is to get beyond the reach of roads and towns. The top land based tours utilize day boats to reach isolated beaches and islands that are chock full of animals and wildlife, but away from tourist crowds. Do not risk a self guided tour that may visit Galapagos but miss all it has to offer.
