One of the most remarkable destinations in the world, the Galapagos Islands are a must for wildlife enthusiasts; choose from stunning luxury lodges, safari-style camps or laid-back island-hopping itineraries, as well as a diverse range of cruises to suit every budget. Please see below a little description on every island, all of them with characteristic different flora and fauna, and if there is a special place you would like to visit, please contact us to find out which of our cruise boats includes that point and in which itinerary.
The islands are a fabulous year-round destination.
– January to April are the warmer, wetter months. The islands are humid, and days can be hot, especially around noon. Temperatures range from 24°C-30°C with daytime temperatures up to around 29°C and the occasional shower.
– May to December are the drier, cooler months. This is the time of the year where wildlife is at its best, since most will be reproducing. The air temperature ranges from 23°C-28°C with July to September normally experiencing more choppy and windy sea conditions.
– Española is the only place where the iconic waved albatross can be seen, visit between April and December for a chance to see their courtship display.
– San Cristobal is a wonderful option for time-poor travellers, with direct flights to the mainland, a huge diversity of wildlife and some of the best snorkelling in the archipelago. What’s more, this is the only place in the islands where you’ll have the chance to see all three of the booby species in the same place.
