Galapagos Guardians: Galapagos Land, Sea and Underwater Adventures

5-Day Galapagos Land Program

Giant Tortoises - Galapagos

Galapagos Islands are a world apart, a must visit for every adventurous traveler, and a treasure for everyone who prizes a very special place where people and animals coexist in harmony.

This fabulous World Heritage site, one of the most famous places on the planet, will transport you back in time. Here you will find not only spectacular wildlife, with a chance to get closer to wild animals than anywhere else on earth, but also a warm, slow-going atmosphere long disappeared from most places on the planet.

There is simply nowhere else like it.

Animals, Adventure and Natural History!

This is land-based tourism in the Galapagos, you will see a side of the islands that most people don’t experience. That is because Land-based tourism - a recent concept in the Galapagos – is a new, more exciting and more responsible way to see the islands.

Tropic has been involved with community-based conservation travel since its founding in 1994, and on the Galapagos, the company continues to work with local people to make tourism sustainable and to ensure the preservation of the archipelago´s incredible natural heritage.

We are betting on the local people, and on working with them on responsible tourism as the best way to make sure the Galapagos survive intact. So join us, and fun-loving characters like Claudio, Maria de Lourdes, Polo, Bolivar, Lelia, and the many other committed conservationists you’ll meet on this voyage.

At the same time you’ll see the Islands’ truly fantastic wildlife, and get closer to it than you ever imagined.

You’ll also have time to explore more of the Islands’ extraordinary geography by foot, kayak and mountain bike, as well as time to relax on the beach and enjoy the sun going down over the Pacific.
