Galapagos Tourism for An Exciting Getaway to These Islands

Galapagos tourism has progressed to the point where the multi-faceted medley of conservation efforts are at odds with the many options for exploring the archipelago.

Read Galapagos Tourism Blog To Stay Updated

This blog is to keep you informed about our efforts towards positive Galapagos tourism, and the ground-breaking projects that others are involved in. We cover the issues that hit close to home, and invite you to discover the latest developments at the camp, in the national park, and beyond each month through our articles.

The scope of Galapagos tourism is such that it has permeated every aspect of the islands. While there are safeguards in place that include limiting the number of people who can visit each site, there is a need for more responsible travel practices in the islands.

Using the classic African safari as our model, we strive to combine conservation with discovery. We grow plants that replenish the land while conscientiously conserving water out of a commitment to preserve the fragile eco-system of the Galapagos.

Plan Galapagos Tourism with Us for Peace of Mind

Our priority is to show our guests the wild beauty and breathtaking grandeur of the Galapagos from an informed perspective. Using this philosophy, we aim to make Galapagos tourism a positive force; giving back to the islands instead of intruding on the environment.

In addition to our work at the camp, we are involved with efforts elsewhere in the archipelago that have similar goals that protect the environment through Galapagos tourism. We partner with organizations that are making a difference through innovative practices that foster community involvement towards a positive impact.

It’s important to know your options and the pros and cons that Galapagos tourism has on the islands when planning a trip. If you have a question about how your travel plans can help protect the environment or would like to know more about the people, places, and projects that we cover in our blog, please contact us through this site for more information.
