This once in a lifetime trip is land based to allow for maximum exploration of multiple islands, coupled with a daily FELDENKRAIS session featuring the evolution of human motion, to refresh your system, strengthen your sense of self and connect you to the action patterns and rhythms you'll observe in the natural world around you.

Snorkel, hike, kayak and cruise by boat during day trips to stunning neighboring islands, beaches, unusual volcanic features and exceptional wildlife viewing. Visit must-see & do Galapagos sites including: Bartolomé Island, North Seymour Island and Santa Fe Island, a Highland tour, Tortuga Bay, Garrapatero Beach and the world famous Charles Darwin Station.

Explore remarkable island ecosystems as you inch past lounging sea lions, scout for breaching whales, explore distant volcanic highlands, watch prehistoric marine iguanas as they sun themselves on black lava rocks along shore, observe brightly colored Frigate Birds, or spot pink flamingos in hidden lagoons. Flightless cormorants and tiny penguins dart through the waters while graceful red-billed tropicbirds screech across the sky. Enjoy the possibility of observing the courtship behaviors of Blue Footed Boobies! Snorkel with curious sea lions, rays, sea turtles, sharks and tropical fish.

These rough & rocky islands are home to wonderfully unique & abundant wildlife. Marvel at the highly adapted creatures found nowhere else on earth while in the company of a knowledgeable Galapagos certified naturalist guide. The absence of human predators allows us unforgettable opportunities for up-close observation. This one of a kind UNESCO World Heritage Site offers a perfect blend of Feldenkrais, recreation & the wild, natural world.

Each guest room has its own unique features. Look out over the forest canopy, the tortoise pond, garden, plantation or enjoy an expansive ocean view. All rooms have private bathrooms, air conditioning, and amenities. Singles, triples and quads can be arranged.
