Comparing Galapagos Multisport Adventures

Galapagos Multisports are island hopping, land based trips that explore the iconic Galapagos wildlife in fun, active ways: sea kayaking, hiking, biking, snorkeling, maybe even stand up paddle boarding. In the last 10 years the popularity of this style of travel grew bigger than a Galapagos tortoise.

We’ve seen a number of operators in the Galapagos try to capitalize on the trend by throwing in a bit of biking or kayaking and marketing it a multisport. That just seems a bit misleading to us! We offer trips that were designed from the ground up to be true multisport adventures, with real adventure guides, quality adventure equipment, and itineraries designed to maximize the experience of being in the Galapagos. What we believe are True Adventure Trips.

This guide was created to help you decide and understand the differences between our favorite, veritable Galapagos Multisport trips.
