Why Land Based Galapagos May Be A Better Option?

When you’re planning your trip to the Galapagos, there’s certainly a lot to think about, but it all starts with one simple question: Cruise or Land-based tour? Cruises are a very popular option for many travelers, but land-based tours are increasingly becoming an excellent alternative.

There are many reasons a land-based tour is preferable to a cruise. With No Roads, you will:


  • Rest and relax in our comfortable boutique hotels instead of on a cramped boat.

  • Spend much less time moving from place to place, and more time having fun.

  • Enjoy flexibility and freedom to do what you want, when you want.

  • Have more time for each activity, which is great for active travelers.

  • Don’t worry about seasickness or your wine glass sliding off the table at dinner.

  • Support the local economy and help provide gainful employment for Galapagueños.

  • Get in touch with the unique vibe of each island and visit town whenever you want.

  • Not have to deal with uncomfortable and time-consuming wet landings just to get off the boat.

  • Experience more variety in your surroundings, activities, cuisine and interactions.

  • Enjoy a smaller group size, meaning more personal attention and less environmental impact.

On top of these advantages, it’s a much more eco-friendly experience, as you are not burning through hundreds of gallons of fuel every day to navigate from one destination to another. Part of traveling to the Galapagos Islands is acknowledging that it is a truly amazing, yet fragile environment, and doing your part to protect it.

If you are traveling with a family, then this is definitely the option for you, with a great selection of kid-friendly activities and no stressful adaptations to living on a boat.

We provide trained adventure sport guides, high quality equipment, a friendly and a multilingual team.
