The Galapagos Islands are perhaps one of the most wonderful places to spend a week, and what better way to do it than enjoying Galapagos luxury tours. There are countless Galapagos options for luxury tours. Here we will offer some suggestions for some of the best Galapagos luxury tours, but this list is by no means exhaustive, and there are plenty more options available. There are Galapagos luxury tours available both through cruises or by basing yourself in a hotel on one of the inhabited islands, and each of these options has its advantages and drawbacks, so it is worth having a good think about what will work best for your needs. With cruise ships you will undoubtedly see more, but with Galapagos land-based options you won’t be stuck with other people for several days on end.

Galapagos Islands cruises can certainly be enjoyed in luxury. One of the very best Galapagos luxury tours available is to be found on the following cruises:


Galapagos Sea Star Journey luxury yacht

The Galapagos Sea Star Journey offers a truly luxurious experience. This award-winning yacht has capacity for 16 passengers who are accommodated in eight spacious suites. One of the best aspects of taking a trip with this provider is that it is more spacious than other options. Everything about the trip oozes class and elegance. One of the suites boasts panoramic windows. The yacht also has Jacuzzis (yes, more than one) and lovely sun loungers on which to kick back and enjoy living in the lap of luxury for a Galapagos cruise. The boat offers two different six-day itineraries as well as a five-day option, and it is possible to combine options for a longer trip.



Natural Paradise

It is another fabulous Galapagos motor yacht where only the finest will do. Given that there are 10 crew members for just 16 passengers, the service is second to none. The comfort and elegance of the boat is very noteworthy, and it is very well equipped with everything you need to have the best possible time in the Galapagos Islands. It operates four-day, five day and eight-day excursions, but these can be combined for a longer trip, if visitors wish. One of the most delightful aspects of this luxury cruise is the al fresco dining area on deck, with very elegant dining offered. There is also a lovely dining area indoors for those that prefer, or just for when the weather does not suit an outdoor meal. Space is considerable on this yacht, both in the suites and in general around the yacht. Suites have private balconies, allowing enjoyment of the cruise from the privacy of the visitor’s own room. There is also a delightful Jacuzzi.

Another of the best Galapagos luxury tours can be experienced on a yacht named Infinity. With its sleek, elegant looks both on the outside and within, you will not be disappointed if you select this ship. Light, airy and spacious throughout, the boat has space for 20 passengers in ten double-occupancy cabins which are split between the main and upper decks. Like some of the other luxury options available, guests can choose to relax on their own private balconies, or to rest in the comfort of their rooms if they wish. Alternatively, this modern-designed vessel has a lovely sun deck with lounge chairs and there is also a Jacuzzi. One of the things that makes this trip really special is that there are two naturalist guides aboard, which means that visits to the islands are done in smaller groups. You can choose a four-day, five day or eight-day option on this ship.

Alia Luxury Catamaran

It also provides one of the best Galapagos luxury tours available. With a beautiful, modern and tasteful design throughout the catamaran accommodates 16 passengers in eight cabins. Cabins are snug and cozy and there are large windows from which to watch the world going by. There is a beautiful sundeck to relax when sailing from island to island, or alternatively, guests may select entertainment from the up-to-date library or the DVD collection to pass the time. This catamaran offers eight-day trips as well as four day and five-day options. Meanwhile, though there are many Galapagos Islands cruises to choose from, another of the best Galapagos luxury tours can be enjoyed on Endemic Cruise. Thoughtfully designed with luxurious interiors, like other Galapagos luxury cruise options it has a Jacuzzi, and guests can also enjoy their own private balconies attached to their cabins. There is a large sundeck and the choice of eating in luxury either indoors or outdoors. This vessel offers eight-day trips as well as trips for six days, five days and four days.





However, you do not have to get onto a boat to enjoy the life of luxury in the Galapagos, as there are excellent Galapagos land based options as well. Ecuador and Galapagos Insiders can offer packages that are based in a variety of wonderful hotels either on Santa Cruz Island or Isabela Island. We can hand-pick your hostel based on your specific needs and preferences so that you experience the luxury you desire from your once in a lifetime trip to the Galapagos Islands. For those that do not enjoy the cruise experience, or who do not want to be confined to a boat for the best part of a week with strangers, this can be a good option. Some of the best Galapagos luxury tours can be enjoyed by basing yourself in one or two places, and then taking trips to the different visitor sites. Regardless of how much space you may get on a luxury ship, you are more likely to have more on firm ground.
