Life moves at a (slightly) more leisurely pace during the summer, making it a great time for a getaway. Whether thinking about traveling this summer, or stretching your plans until later into the fall, we have a couple of ideas that may appeal to adventure-lovers and wildlife enthusiasts alike!
It may seem different to think about a land-based exploration of the Galapagos Islands, but for travelers who prefer a proper bed rather than sleeping aboard a ship, this is a perfect solution! Your adventure starts in Ecuador’s highlands, with two nights at a family-owned Andean hacienda. Immerse yourself in the culture and experience of this working ranch, where you will truly feel like part of the family. Then, head to the islands for your Galapagos exploration! You will stay at a luxury eco-lodge in the islands, offering you enhanced comfort and safety, while your daytrips by boat and on foot will provide you with a deep appreciation of the diversity of the archipelago. Your exploration will also help you feel more connected to the local culture as you meet your island neighbors and learn more about life in the Galapagos.
