Location of Adventure
Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Group Size Limit
20 Travelers
A very important feature of our family Galapagos trips is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with fewer travelers. The Letty can accommodate a maximum of 20 guests and the trips are accompanied by two NHA Expedition Leaders.
Our Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Accommodations, meals from breakfast on Day 2 to breakfast on Day 10, optional overnight at NHA's Wild Tortoise Camp, drinking water, services of NHA’s professional Expedition Leaders, local guides and boat crew, some gratuities, airport transfers, excursions in Otavalo, use of wetsuits, kayaks and snorkel gear on all scheduled departures, permit fees.
Not Included
Travel to and from Quito, R/T air Quito to Galapagos (added to your invoice and subject to change until day of departure), most gratuities, alcohol, Galapagos tax and transit card (currently $120 for adults, $70 for children under 12, added to your invoice), items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry, etc.), travel insurance, optional activities.
Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate
The activities on this trip consist of island walks, swimming and snorkeling. Trails are often rough and uneven, over sharp lava fields and loose rocks and gravel. Walking over slippery rocks is sometimes necessary when coming ashore. Passengers must be able to walk two miles to participate in this trip, walk up and down stairs, and be able to get in and out of our motorized pangas (rigid inflatable rafts), which can be very unsteady in rough water. A few wet landings, where we disembark from the panga directly into the water and walk up onto the beach, are included. Snorkeling is a big component of this trip, with excursions offered nearly every day, sometimes twice a day. While no snorkeling experience is required, prior practice is recommended and travelers should be comfortable swimming in moderate currents, near shore and in deep water. Our Expedition Leaders will also offer guidance for those in need of additional snorkeling instruction. Travelers are not required to participate in every activity.
Important Information About This Trip
There may be no more appropriate destination on the planet for nature travelers than the Galapagos Islands. With rare and friendly wildlife found at every turn, these islands unveil the beauty and intricacies of the natural world in a truly unique manner. The key to the success of our Galapagos adventures is our small group size. On the Letty we accommodate just 20 guests staffed with two Expedition Leaders. We generally break down into even smaller groups ashore. Splitting the group also allows our guests to move at their chosen pace, although it is important that guests be able to walk on some uneven terrain up to a mile or two, as well as to disembark the panga (motorized raft) in sometimes rough conditions. Snorkeling is a regular part of the itinerary in the Galapagos. The trip includes an optional stay at our deluxe camp in the highlands of Santa Cruz, with accommodations in permanent safari-style tents and treehouses, with shared bathhouse facilities. On this private property the Galapagos' famous giant tortoises roam freely and often wander in close proximity to camp. Some families may prefer to charter their own vessel – please call us for details: 1-800-543-8917.

Please note:
The itinerary provided is meant as a guideline, and is subject to change without notice. On rare occasions, it may be necessary to deviate from our regular itinerary for reasons beyond our control. In these instances we will provide the best available alternative.
Age Limit on Family Galapagos Trips
We welcome children ages seven and older on scheduled departures. However, while some seven-year-olds are well suited for our Galapagos adventures, others may not be ready for the requirements of group travel. We believe it's best to consider this minimum age limit a guideline – you, as a parent or guardian, are best qualified to decide whether your child would enjoy the experience without compromising the comfort of others. We strongly encourage you to speak with one of our Adventure Specialists about the specific requirements of the trip so you can make an informed decision. We do not permit children younger than seven on our scheduled departures due to safety regulations, physical limitations and concerns regarding group dynamics.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrival: Please arrive in Quito no later than 4 pm on Day 1 in order to attend a welcome/orientation dinner at 7 pm.
Departure: You are free to depart from Quito after 9 pm on Day 10.
