Galapagos Land Based Tours

Check Availability


Land tours of the Galapagos

Our Galapagos island land tours allow you to explore the Galapagos Islands during the day and sleep in comfortable, oceanfront eco-lodges at night. Our Galapagos Land Based Tours are private, customizable and offer the most flexibility for you to do the activities at your own pace.

Exclusive access to your Galapagos naturalist guide will provide you with a wealth of information and personalized attention for the duration of your trip.

Land tours of the Galapagos are an excellent option for active and adventurous travelers, for wildlife enthusiasts who do not want to sleep on board a boat, and for those who prefer traveling to less visited areas of the Galapagos in small, private groups. Get opportunities to know the locals better than you would on a normal Galapagos cruise.

Enjoy snorkeling, swimming, hiking, sea kayaking, and explore remote isolated beaches full of fearless Galapagos wildlife, all at your own pace on a Galapagos multisport tour. Other activities, including Galapagos scuba diving day tours, may be available as well, just ask us.

Damon put together the perfect itinerary for our group of 7 - including grandparents. His knowledge of the region is superb, which is why he is able to create the ultimate trip for your family. From whitewater rafting in Peru to zip-lining in Ecuador, we truly had the trip of a lifetime! I wouldn't go with anyone else!

Our trip was fantastic and Micaela with Andean Discovery was great! Every detail was taken care of ahead of time. We just showed up and enjoyed the beauty of South America. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

We traveled with our family of 3 people. Andean did a wonderful job helping us select an itinerary that was able to accommodate our various ages. We had no glitches in a fairly complicated itinerary and everything came off as planned. Our local guide in Quito Johanna was terrific. I can't recommend Sacha Lodge more highly. Our experience in Galapagos on the Coral 1 was magical. While the crew of the Coral 1 could have been more charming and smiled on occasion they were helpful, the food was very good and the rooms were kept clean. I have no reservations in recommending Andean Discovery for your South American Holiday

Thanks to Andean our vacation was a wonderful experience for our entire family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grand kids aged 16 to 9).. The planning for the trip to the Galapagos was well researched; the hotels, guides and itinerary were spot on. They answered our many questions before we departed and there NO disappointments during the vacation. It was the most memorable trip our family has taken.

My family toured the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu in Peru with Andean Discovery guides and reservations. We had a fabulous adventure! I recommend highly that "superior lodging" be chosen as an option for the best possible room accommodations. The marvelous comfort of the fine hotels Andean booked for us made all the difference.

Traveling to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu was a dream vacation for my wife. After much research we booked our trip through Andean Discovery. We are so glad we did. Everything went smoothly and our personal guides in Ecuador and Peru were wonderful. I would highly recommend Andean Discovery to anyone thinking of taking a similar trip.
