Galápagos Islands Luxury Cruise & Travel
Cruise the Galápagos Islands & Ecuador with A&K
One of the world’s most spectacular destinations, Ecuador’s Galápagos Islands offer a fascinating open-air wildlife museum that stirs the explorer in everyone. Home to an astonishing variety of endemic species — enough to inspire a theory of origin that would change the world — the archipelago is also one of the few places on earth where adventurers can observe unafraid wildlife up close.
The best way to explore these magical Islands is by expedition vessel, and even better, aboard an intimate cruise with Abercrombie & Kent. Choose from our Galápagos Wildlife Adventure and Family Galápagos, luxurious small-group journeys that begin and end with stays in Ecuador’s most iconic cities.
Every carefully designed A&K itinerary to the Galápagos features intimate, expertly led sailings and exclusive wildlife encounters across the archipelago’s most coveted islands. A&K guests also enjoy:
Smaller Group Sizes. In contrast to other travel companies, A&K caps daily excursions to 12 passengers per guide, meaning more personalized attention and better opportunities to learn and explore.
Agile and Intimate Cruising. Our expeditions take place on smaller, ecofriendly vessels like 'La Pinta,' which are purposely designed to nimbly and comfortably navigate Galápagos waters. Daily excursions are conducted in sturdy pangas (rubber rafts), which take you right to shore for up-close encounters.
The Best Naturalist Guides. A&K’s long-term local presence means we have access to the region’s most experienced and engaging naturalists, each of whom reveal a rich perspective on this otherworldly paradise.
Inventive itineraries. In addition to classic Galápagos sites, A&K takes you to Albemarle Point on Isabela Island — where few other travel companies are allowed — and other rarely visited destinations. These include Black Turtle Cove on Santa Cruz Island, Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island and the pristine western region of the archipelago.
