With our Galapagos Islands Multi-Sport family vacation itinerary, we’ve replaced your typical cruise ship with charming hotel stays on the islands. Leave the crowds of visitors and well-worn paths behind and spend time with your family actively exploring the islands.
The extra time will be used to maximize opportunities for wildlife viewing and exploration. Your family will discover wildlife as you navigate the small volcanic island of Tintoreras, swim with sea lions at Loberia Chica and meet giant tortoises up close at private conservation farms. You’ll snorkel around mangroves teeming with marine life at Whale Bay, and hike and bike around Sierra Negra Volcano, the Wall of Tears and the bay of El Garrapatero. At every turn, this itinerary offers something to keep your family active and interested.
This trip is for the adventurous family that is eager to trade the comforts of a cruise ship for a quaint bed and breakfast in order to discover the flora and fauna of the Galapagos in a unique way. If it's luxury that you're looking for, you may want to see about joining one of our cruises.

Our Galapagos Multi-Sport Adventure itinerary offers you and your thrill-seeking family a totally complete experience of the Galapagos Islands. Dedicate your whole trip to hiking, biking, snorkeling and kayaking your way through the biological hub of the world. You’ll be welcomed with open arms – or wings and flippers – by the islands’ blue-footed boobies and friendly sea lions, joined by so many more precious creatures… marine iguanas, sting rays, tropical fish, giant Galapagos tortoises, all kinds of shorebirds, and maybe even the Galapagos penguin!
Though located on the equator, the weather in the Galapagos isn’t as warm as one would expect most of the year; it's mid to low 70s, thanks to the Humboldt Current. Bringing cold water up from Antarctica, the current dominates the surrounding ocean from May through December. Low temperatures and a near-constant mist around the tops of the mountains are known as “garua.”
