Galápagos Adventure Travel & Expeditions
Perhaps one of the most iconic of all adventure travel destinations is the Galápagos Islands—an opportunity for curious travelers to greet up close the endemic wildlife and pristine landscapes of the Enchanted Isles. Our Galápagos adventure tours offer some of the most singular moments you’ll have in your lifetime: snorkeling amidst playful sea lions, basking in the sun next to marine iguanas, and sitting just a few feet away from a pair of courting blue-footed boobies. There’s much to see as part of your Galápagos adventure travel: visit the Charles Darwin Research Station and learn about current conservation projects; hike on Fernandina, the youngest island of the Galápagos and with no introduced species to date; and search for octopus, starfish, and great-blue herons on Santiago, the island on which Darwin spent most of his time.
Zegrahm cofounder Jack Grove designed our Galápagos itinerary and is joined by expert naturalists and Darwin experts who will enlighten you along this journey. Jack’s book, The Fishes of the Galápagos Islands, was the first definitive book on the fish of the Galápagos Islands. Tap their expansive knowledge as you snorkel among sea turtles and penguins or during hikes across the lunar-like terrain of the islands. And because Galápagos eco travel means getting the most from your visit here, yet leaving it as untouched as it was when Darwin first visited, you’ll travel aboard the 40-passenger Isabela II, making for an intimate experience with like-minded guests and offering the ability to navigate easily around the islands.
The itineraries we offer vary from year to year; below please find our upcoming Galápagos adventure travel expeditions.
Expeditions to Galapagos
Certainly one of the most iconic and memorable expeditions one can take, Galápagos adventure travel is exhilarating and humbling. You’ll find yourself in the company of species found nowhere else in the world, walking among abundant wildlife that has grown astonishingly fearless in the absence of humans and large predators. On your Galápagos tour, you might find yourself face to face with a pair of courting blue-footed boobies, sitting next to a marine iguana as it basks in the sun, or snorkeling amidst a family of playful sea lions.
This Galápagos tour offers the perfect introduction to Las Islas Encantadas, delivering a comprehensive experience in a relatively short amount of time. During your six-day Galápagos expedition, you will make numerous landings on no less than eight unique islands. Take scenic cruises along the wild shores by Zodiac and land on these remote, uninhabited islands for nature walks that reveal endemic species and prolific wildlife.
