Galapagos: Drink It In

 
A new step in the evolution of luxury eco-adventure in the Galapagos Islands, Pikaia Lodge is designed for the environmentally conscious, physically active and adventurous traveler who seeks close contact with the unique natural wonders of the Galapagos. With the highest level of comfort and service that can be provided within the limitations of such a remote, restricted and eco-sensitive location, Pikaia offers, in contrast to a cruise, more privacy and personalized attention, a finer gastronomy, arrival & departure date flexibility, and, most importantly for some, the possibility for ship-sensitive people to avoid seasickness.
