Luxury Family Trips to the Galapagos
Adventure into this volcanic archipelago and experience diverse nature and wildlife in a luxury Galapagos family tour.
As the planet’s ultimate up-close wildlife encounter, family trips to the Galapagos are unparalleled. What’s more, our Galapagos travel designers know the best cruises, luxury boats, lodges and hotels to suit your family.
Your dedicated designer has years of experience in delivering tailor-made family trips to these unique islands and will shoulder all the detailed planning for a seamless Galapagos tour adventure that you can just sit back and enjoy.
With numerous differing routes and schedules, choosing the right cruise and vessel for your family can be tricky. We can help you choose between an expertly staffed larger ship, more personal smaller vessel, or, for larger family groups, an exclusive adventure on a privately chartered yacht. We also find twinning a cruise with time spent at a luxury lodge on one of the island works well for families, and we can extend your Galapagos adventure to include an exploration of mainland Ecuador or neighbouring Peru.
Our experts can talk you through the options to make sure you find the option that best suits your bespoke Galapagos family tour. We’ll make sure that you have an unforgettable time getting up close to the extraordinary microcosm of wildlife of each island; sea lions, marine iguanas, giant tortoises, beautiful birdlife, and climbing extinct volcanoes, sea kayaking and snorkeling in between.
I can’t imagine a better way to experience this incredible destination than with family. There’s nowhere else quite like it and the wildlife is active year-round, so you’ll always be witness to something special here – whether it’s snorkelling with somersaulting sea lions, spotting frigate birds puffing out their red chests trying to attract mates, or witnessing newly hatched albatrosses taking their first steps.

My husband and I have taken several Jacada trips and we are so spoiled that we cannot book with anyone else. The experiences are unforgettable and the guides are amazingly knowledgeable. If you want a unique, once in a lifetime excursion, look not further. Jacada is simply the best!
Jacada organised an amazing trip. All accommodation, travel arrangements and tours were first class and executed flawlessly. Would not hesitate to recommend them. Well done Lily et al. Thanks
We just finished an amazing trip to Ecuador over the Thanksgiving holiday with Jacada Travel. Our trip consisted of 3 nights in Quito and Otavalo, 4 nights in the Amazon and then 5 more nights in the Galapagos, splitting between a land based adventure on Isabella and Santa Cruz islands. One of the things Jacada really nailed was the local…
Really a fantastic experience for us. It met or exceeded most of our expectations, and definitely made traveling in an unfamiliar environment comfortable and stress free.
