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.

This is the third time I have used Jacada and am always very happy. The company makes planning great trips seamless. They use fantastic local guides and have great suggestions regarding restaurants. I had a slight hiccup in the trip and the Jacada team immediately jumped in and obtained a great resolution.
Our trip to Botswana was our 2nd trip done through Jacada and it was as well planned and full of excitement as our trip to Ecuador/Galapagos. All the lodges we stayed at were awesome and all the transfers between them were very smooth. Jody and Angela at Jacada were always very helpful and responsive in the planning stages and got…
Jacada exceeded our expectations at every point. Logistics, hotels, local guides. Everything went smoothly. I will be a repeat customer and recommend the firm highly. Thanks David and Berni!
Lily Bunker has planned 2 amazing trips for us this year - one to Costs Rica and one to Peru, Ecuador and Galápagos Islands. Both of them exceeded expectations with amazing excursions, 4-star accommodations and outstanding guides and drivers. What I love most about choosing Jacada is how safe my family and I feel while visiting foreign countries. I also…
I highly recommend using Jacada Travel when booking your vacation.
