“For those seeking a land-based Galapagos experience rather than the typical sailing experience, Pikaia Lodge is a luxurious and stylish property. Witness stunning views across Santa Cruz island from its location on the edge of an extinct volcano crater within 30 plus hectares of private land (which is also home to private wild giant tortoise reserve). Pikaia offers daily land-based activities, and there’s the chance to explore nearby islands by the hotel’s private yacht.”
