Hidden in a secluded location and nestled on top of an extinct volcano crater.  Pikaia Lodge is a stunning new alternative for exploring the "Last paradise on Earth" in a comfortable and truly sustainable land based way.  Its concept designed for the environmentally conscious, physically active eco-adventure traveler, who seeks close contact with the unique natural wonders of the Galapagos with the highest level of comfort and services that could be reazonably provided within the limitations of such a remote, restricted and eco-sensitive location. No lack of privacy, seasickness nor confined spaces of the typical yachts or cruises. Enjoy active, quality guided land and marine day programs in small groups, rest in spacious and quiet accommodations at night.


In the central area of Archipelago, the Santa Cruz Island provided us with the perfect opportunity to develop our unique land based day tour concept, since the most interesting islands, secluded white sandy beaches and wildlife sites of the Galapagos National Park are nearby. All these can be reached within relatively short navigation times on board our large, comfortable, safe and stable oceangoing yacht Pikaia I. Discover some of the finest beaches of the Galapagos near the lodge, by taking a stroll, you can come face to face with a wild giant tortoise.
