Galapagos Islands Wildlife Holidays and Tours
Think Galapagos has been organising exceptional Galapagos Island wildlife holidays and tours, including Ecuador, for over twenty years.
We are a small expert team comprised of Galapagos National Park guides, biologists and tourism specialists with an office in Quito and the UK, organising tours for travellers around the world. Our wildlife tours to the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador are different. They are oriented towards people who want to experience, observe and learn as much as possible about Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. We want to make sure your travel experience is truly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
Crucial to our success is our expertise and intimate knowledge borne of years of living and working in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. This means we work only with the best naturalists and biologist guides, the majority of whom we have known personally for years.
Each of our Galapagos wildlife holidays involves time onboard one of our handpicked selection of Galapagos yachts. Onboard a yacht is the only way to visit the best and most remote parts of this remarkable archipelago. The yachts we use are all small, sailing gently between the islands they bring you closer to nature and have been handpicked by us for their top-class guides, excellent service, comfortable cabins, knowledgeable captains and friendly crew.
Tailor-made Galapagos and Ecuador Wildlife Holidays
We specialise in creating tailor-made trips that best match our guest’s budget, interests and time frames. Be it a special birding trip, a photography-focused holiday, a holiday just for two of you, or multigenerational family trips Think Galapagos co-founder Rachel Dex will work together with you to help create your ultimate Galapagos and Ecuador wildlife holiday using our decades of experience, intimate local knowledge and a top team of guides. The tours described here are some of our favourites and are designed to give you a taste of what is possible to include in your trip with Think Galapagos.
Small Group Escorted Galapagos Wildlife Tours
We also offer a small number of escorted group trips each year which are led by Think Galapagos co-founder Santiago Bejarano who has worked in the Galapagos Islands since 1992. A wildlife photographer and conservationist, Santiago is widely regarded as one of the leading naturalists in the Islands and was the naturalist selected for the Smithsonian Institute trip to the islands, The New York Natural History Museum Galapagos trip and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, to name just a few.
Responsible tourism is our most important commitment. Throughout our trips we strive to inspire and educate, providing a deep understanding of the ecosystems you will visit and their conservation value, helping encourage a greater overall environmental awareness. Our travel partners, accommodation and transport are all carefully chosen to ensure their commitment to the environment.
As part of our commitment to conserving the remarkable places our guests visit, at the start of 2020 we took the decision to offset all the carbon generated by our holidays with the Forest Credits scheme run by Rainforest Concern. The scheme directly benefits areas of cloud forest in Ecuador we know and love.
At the time of booking your trip with us, you will also be given the choice of which of our charities you would like us to support in your name. For each guest booking with us we make a donation. This goes either to help protect 1/5 of an acre of Ecuadorean rainforest in a project run by Rainforest Concern designed to create a wildlife corridor betweeen the Cotacachi Cayapas Ecological Reserve and community owned forest or to a charity working to provide healthy school lunches for children in Ecuador’s Chimborazo province. Guests can choose at the time of booking. So far we have helped protect over 35 acres of forest in Ecuador and funded a years worth of healthy lunches for over 80 children.
