Indulge Your Bucket List

This once-in-a-lifetime Galapagos adventure will do wonders for your travel bucket list.

In addition to must-see Galapagos treats such as the emerald green waters of Las Grietas, you’ll kayak in secluded bays, swim with sea lions and turtles, and frolic with penguins.

Oh, and of course, don’t forget the yoga. Bookend your jam-packed days of Galapagos adventures with expertly guided onsite yoga!


Fresh adventure awaits you each morning

After sunrise yoga and breakfast, you’ll set off on a whirlwind of unparalleled Galapagos adventure tours with naturalists who add depth to each day’s explorations.

The crown jewel of the Galapagos Islands, Bartolomé, is famous for its unique geological features, amazing dual crescent bays and diverse wildlife. You’ll visit Pinnacle Rock, a volcanic cone, commune with the penguins, and snorkel with reef sharks and sea turtles.

A new day brings a new adventure to the Highlands of Santa Cruz. Visit the twin craters of Los Gemelos, climb through lava tunnels, and explore the Cloud Forest.

If it’s white sand beaches you’re after, head to Tortuga Bay. Hike through a forest of cacti and trees to discover this secluded spot. Kayak among the mangroves or snorkel in the bay – and keep your eyes open … iguana friends are everywhere!


Luxe Digs 

When you do finally come home to restore and rejuvenate, you’ll bask in the greenest, most luxurious accommodations at MonteMar. Center yourself after each day of adventure with a sunset yoga practice followed by dinner and downtime.

Your 43-acre home-away-from-home boasts giant tortoises, an organic coffee plantation and an organic garden. You’ll enjoy rain water showers heated by solar power to refresh body and soul.


We Make Sure You Tread Lightly 

In a place of such unparalleled biodiversity and natural bounty, it’s important that we all treat lightly. That’s why we’re so proud to work with our partners at MonteMar.

MonteMar promises the best of nature for you. They’re the first completely eco-efficient operation in the Galapagos.

MonteMar collects 100% of the water used in its operation from the rain. Clouds that have had no contact with civilization for thousands of miles arrive to Galapagos. MonteMar treats rain water with non-invasive technology to maintain all of its natural benefits.

MonteMar also generates 99% of the energy used in its operation with solar panels and solar water heaters. Free-range organic chickens and a bounty from the organic garden make sure your experience is local, wholesome, and gentle on the earth.

And local materials craft each space – bamboo, Spanish cedar, and lava rocks – for organic surroundings that are earth-friendly and blend into the surrounding splendor.
