Guided by field ecologists: Guided tours to locations on and off the well-worn path to see giant tortoises, sea turtles, boobies and other exotic birds, seal lions, iguanas, penguins, sharks and seahorses and much, much more.

Water Discovery: Privately chartered boats & guides bring us to hidden grottos and protected shallow pools where aquatic life abounds. Snorkeling opens up a world of sea


Air Discovery: For those who love small airplane rides, we’ve included a flight across the islands to see the lava flows that made these island archipelago

After creating extraordinary events and consciousness raising tours for decades, we asked ourselves, What would our ideal retreat be like? Hands-down, our answer was a small, like-minded group retreat in the Galapagos Islands. Of course, the Galapagos are on everyone’s bucket list. As one of the most untouched and natural places on the planet, this inspirational setting is uniquely conducive to helping one see life in a much broader context. So if your heart is drawn to the primordial archipelago, the time for your own personal evolution may be at hand. map-of-journey-shadow

We guarantee this journey will open your eyes, expand your senses, and renew your awe for life and living.

To accomplish that, we’ve worked very hard to make sure that our small and customized trip also means competitively affordable.

We’ve used the best resources and most comfortable accommodations possible to keep the journey of your dreams within reach. Come be among the few who see the Galapagos in 2017. Ecuador limits tours to protect endangered species. We limit our group size to protect your experience.
