Galapagos Islands vacations 2020 & 2021

Travel in times of uncertainty
With practical guidance, our flexibility promise and inspirational tools for travel planning, you can book with confidence with Audley.

Boulder-like giant tortoises, diving marine iguanas, waved albatrosses taking flight… on a tailor-made vacation to the Galapagos Islands with Audley, you’ll see all their wildlife highlights — and much more — your way. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style and your budget. Our Galapagos specialists know the islands and their wildlife inside out, and can lead you to experiences and encounters you won’t find in a guidebook.

Take an adventure cruise around the archipelago, stopping to snorkel in waters brimming with tropical fish and sea turtles. Stroll among sea lions basking on beaches, and hike the cindery caldera of Cerro Negro Volcano. Pass blue-footed, red-footed and masked boobies on a guided walk with a conservation expert: the wildlife here has no fear of humans. Watch frigate birds’ showy, chest-puffing mating rituals.

The Charles Darwin Research Station. Highland safari camps. The bird-clustered cliffs of remote Genovesa Island, flamingo colonies and mangrove boat trips. What excites you? Travel at your own pace, in your own style, with the confidence that we’ll show you the best options, wherever you go.
