South America Galapagos Islands Land Tour

Galapagos Island Hopper

The Galapagos Island Hopper is a 5-, 7- or 8-day lodge-based Galapagos adventure that allows you to travel in comfort between islands by small plane and speedboat while spending each evening on land in the finest boutique hotels in the Galapagos.

Enjoy active days exploring Isabela, Santa Cruz and San Cristobal—hiking, biking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. Visit Isabela Island’s primordial volcanic terrain, Santa Cruz Island’s exuberant flora and fauna and San Cristobal Island’s varied landscapes and rich history. Immerse yourself in the incredible scenery and close encounters with Galapagos wildlife. Visit iconic visitor sites like the Santa Cruz Highlands, Charles Darwin Research Center, Interpretation Center, local coffee and chocolate businesses and more.

In addition to the main 8-day Galapagos Island Hopper itinerary, there is a 7-day Multisport Adventure itinerary that does not include the wildlife tour to a nearby island. There is also a 5-day Wildlife Discovery itinerary that showcases the highlights of Isabela, Santa Cruz and San Cristobal in 5 action-packed days.
