Island Hopping Galapagos Tours

The best is still out there to be discovered. Island hopping might be cheaper, but it gives you the option to overnight at hotels in Galapagos, get to know the local people, enjoy charming towns and take daily tours and excursions during the day.

Island Hopping is the perfect way to experience the Islands, spending quality time in four main towns, taking part in daily excursions to nearby visitor sites or participating in adventure sports.

Boat rides might be long from island to island. Acoommodation will concentrate on the main ports, Puerto Ayora (Sta. Cruz Island), Puerto Villamil (Isabela Island), Puerto Velasco Ibarra (Floreana Island) and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristobal Island).

While based in a hotel on one of three inhabited islands, you will have a unique and relaxing experience at the same time learning about the Galapagos’ extraordinary flora and fauna.

Island Hopping also presents the perfect opportunity to practice sports such as hiking, biking, kayaking, horseback riding, snorkeling among others.

Stay, rest and relax on one of many gorgeous white sandy beaches before or after your cruise. The perfect way to complete your Galapagos adventure in a nice hotel.
