Galapagos Travel FAQs

How much does a Galapagos trip cost? Prices vary depending on trip type (by boat or by land) and trip length. The islands are remote and quality local guides are essential. Flights from Ecuador to Galapagos and national park fees are necessary. Expect to pay from $300-$1000 per person per day for a one-week Galapagos vacation.

How do you get to the Galapagos Islands? All Galapagos trips begin with a flight from mainland Ecuador (Quito or Guayaquil) to the Islands (either Santa Cruz, Baltra or San Cristobal). Galapagos flights are arranged in conjunction with your trip and are typically not included in the listed price. You cannot sail to Galapagos from the mainland. There are no direct international flights to the Galapagos Islands. Read our article How to Get to Galapagos for more insights into Galapagos airports, airlines, flights and costs.
