Nestled amidst the forested highlands of Isabella Island and overlooking the sea, Scalesia Galapagos Lodge envelops guests in wilderness of the archipelago’s most pristine main island.

16 large safari-style tents sit on hardwood decks and leaving a minimal footprint on the 16 hectare (40 acre) forest reserve. The tents are scattered around the main building, a strikingly modern piece of architecture that is the social hub of the lodge.

There are a vast array of activities on Isabela, from snorkelling and scuba diving excursions, hiking up active volcanoes (the island is the youngest in the Galapagos and the most volcanically active), kayaking, surfing, biking and bird watching. The lodge can also arrange island hopping tours combining Isabela with nearby Santa Cruz, Floreana and San Cristobal.
