Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel and Scalesia Galapagos Lodge partnered to offer guests a one-of-a-kind Galapagos glamping experience. The week-long trip brings travelers from Quito, Ecuador, to Isabela Island and Santa Cruz Island.

 

Perfect for a multigenerational adventure, the trip kicks off in Quito with a private transfer to accommodations at Casa Gangotena in the heart of Old City. Enjoy the property’s amenities or explore Quito’s cultural attractions. Next, guests travel to Isabela Island via a twin-engine light aircraft to Scalesia Galapagos Lodge. There are 16 safari-style tents available. Guests spend days two–four of the trip at the lodge. Choose from a variety of activities, including hiking, volcano visits, snorkeling and wildlife viewing.

 

 

On day five, transfer to Santa Cruz Island, the most populated island in the Galapagos. Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel is located here with views of lush greenery and the waters of Punta Estrada. Explore the nearby islands on a motor yacht tour with a naturalist on day six. Enjoy a three-course meal on the beach for dinner. On day seven, spend time at Divine Bay for snorkeling. The area is a prime location for wildlife viewing, including various birds, turtles, fish, sharks and rays. Depart for home day eight.

 

Pricing starts at $4,658 per person based on double occupancy.
