Top 3 Reasons for why you should definitely consider traveling to the Galapagos Islands during these December dates


#1: You get to experience the Enchanted Isles before the Christmas Rush!

In spite of the fact that the Galapagos Islands are a destination where you will never be met by excessive crowds – as visitor numbers are continuously and strictly regulated by the Galapagos National Park – seizing the opportunity to travel before (or even after) the Christmas craze is always a good option for those looking for a more intimate experience in the Enchanted Isles.

#2: There’s nothing but blue skies!

Towards the end of November and the beginning of December, the Galapagos Islands begin to experience the highest levels and hours of completely clear skies. So don’t fret about Galapagos being overcast during this time of year! Depending on where you’re coming from and your skin type, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to ward off that pale winter hue with a healthy dose of Vitamin D* in Galapagos!

*Guests are highly encouraged to use a minimum of SPF 50 sunscreen when exploring the Galapagos. Don’t forget: you are closest to the sun right here on the equator!

#3: Baby Galapagos Albatrosses and their “test flights”

The offspring of the largest bird in Galapagos are finally starting to flap their wings and give flying a go! December in Galapagos is an excellent time to watch as young albatrosses attempt to take to the skies with their comical wipeouts that might occur during their practice “touch and go” landings on Española Island. All of this they do in preparation for the great migration of their species that occurs at the beginning of January.

Note: Galapagos albatrosses can only be seen on our Eastern and Southern Galapagos Islands itineraries.
