Galapagos Family Vacations

Pure Evolution

From colonial Quito, head to the natural splendour of the Galapagos Islands – a modern-day Eden with an unmatched trove of exotic endemic wildlife. Here, you will spot sea lions sharing the beach with marine iguanas, explore ancient volcanic tunnels and, yes, cross paths with giant tortoises. This inimitable adventure is sure to provide you and your family with memories to treasure.

While space in the Galapagos Islands is notoriously limited, B&R has secured 8 weeks of space between October and December 2016, and 18 weeks between March and December 2017.

Trip Details

Hotels:

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Hotels

Casa Gangotena, Quito

Glimpse the heart of old Quito as it was meant to be enjoyed, amidst the generous comforts of this handsomely restored mansion. Sumptuously appointed rooms bask in the warmth of natural light as towering windows overlook the Plaza San Francisco. Stately and sophisticated, yet perfectly intimate thanks to the Ecuadorean hospitality. View hotel website »

M/V Eclipse

One of the best ships sailing in the Galápagos Islands, the Eclipse is an upscale expedition vessel that offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service. Large enough to travel the Pacific in comfort and safety, small enough to dock at remote ports and negotiate inter-island landings with agility, the Eclipse is the perfect size for an expedition-style adventure and the choice for travelers who prefer the intimate, comfortable atmosphere and attentive service of a smaller boutique vessel to a larger cruise ship. She features outstanding open-air spaces, comfortable cabins, and spectacular al fresco dining. View hotel website »

MORE INFORMATION

Activity Level

Recreational

This walking trip features plenty of uneven footing and dirt trails—but its focus is not on covering distance. Transportation to and from the day’s event is provided in most instances. The change in elevation (Quito is 2,800 metres above sea level) may interfere with the breathing of some travellers.

Gear

Walking Sticks &
Hip Holsters

Included with all walking trips are Leki telescoping walking sticks and custom-made padded hip holsters, which comfortably carry one full half-litre water bottle. And while the walking sticks get “recycled” for use by another B&R traveller, the holsters are yours to keep at trip’s end.

What's Included

  • All transfers
  • 2 nights in Quito + breakfast
  • Galapagos Cruise 7 nights/8 days including all excursions, meals and transfers
  • internal flights to/from Quito to Galapagos Islands
  • All park fees and taxes
  • VIP lounge at the airport in Baltra on outgoing flights

At Your Service

We take pride in choosing guides who are not only exceptional travelling companions, but who’ll go far beyond the call of duty to ensure an unforgettable experience.
