Travel to the Galápagos & Ecuador
Experience 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. The archipelago, located about 600 miles west of mainland Ecuador, is home to an astonishing variety of endemic species — enough to inspire a theory that would change the world — and proves an irresistible destination for adventurers and nature-lovers to this day. Every Abercrombie & Kent journey to this otherworldly paradise features:
The best guides. A&K’s long-term local presence means we have access to the region’s most experienced naturalists, who make your journey unforgettable.
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.
Agility and flexibility. Eco-friendly and purpose built, 'La Pinta' is small enough to nimbly navigate Galápagos waters. Daily excursions are conducted in sturdy pangas (rubber rafts), which take you right to shore for up-close encounters.
Inventive itineraries. In addition to classic Galápagos sites, A&K takes you to Albemarle Point on Isabela Island (few other travel companies are allowed here), and destinations not usually visited. These include Black Turtle Cove on Santa Cruz Island, Punta Espinoza on Fernandina Island and the pristine western region of the archipelago.
