Galapagos Islands, Equador
Scalesia Galapagos Lodge is a new concept of luxury eco-camping in the Galapagos Islands. Beautifully designed, the lodge allows you to connect with nature in the highlands of Isabela Island, nestled within 16 hectares of magnificent Scalesia forest.
Accommodations are based on a traditional African safari concept, where guests sleep in rustic, but well-appointed tents, giving you the chance to immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world. From the comfort of your tent enjoy incredible views of the island and the Pacific Ocean. Relax in the ensuite bath. Catch sunset over the coast. Then curl up under a down duvet and get ready for sweet dreams.
Your days will be filled with abundant wildlife and out-of-this-world adventure. Hike volcanoes. Look for penguins. Snorkel with manta rays. Then, return to Scalesia and relax in one of the social gathering spaces, reflecting on the new memories made that day.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Galapagos into a greater Ecuador & The Galapagos holiday. Take a look at Nature and Wildlife in Ecuador and The Galapagos as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
Scalesia Lodge Information
- Location & Getting There
Scalesia Galapagos Lodge is located in the highlands of Isabela, nestled in a magical forest with spectacular coastal views. The journey to the island starts from Quito or Guayaquil International Airports, each a 2-hour flight to nearby Seymour Airport in Baltra.
The Lodge has been designed to allow you to explore Galapagos at its best. Sixteen beautiful luxury tents offer modern comforts and attractive décor in the middle of the lush forest. All of the tents include an ensuite bathroom stocked with amenities to keep you feeling fresh and comfortable throughout your stay.
Crisp white linens and down duvets crown comfortable king and twin size beds. Hardwood floors and contemporary furnishings provide a soothing backdrop to the serene environment. In every tent, find peace, tranquility, and the chance to reconnect with nature.
The most pristine of the three populated islands, Isabela Island is divided into two sections and is home to six large volcanoes. In the north, a wild and remote environment provides opportunities for rugged adventure in the shallow waters. In the south, towering volcanoes rise impressively into the sky.
Puerto Villamil is just a 20-minute ride away and is a haven of pelicans, penguins, flamingos, herons, sea turtles, sea lions, manta rays, sharks, tropical fish, and more. Outdoor adventurers will rejoice with options to hike, surf, kayak, snorkel, and play with the wildlife on every shore.
Scalesia Galapagos Lodge is an excellent choice for families.
