About Us

Hidden in a secluded location and nestled on top of an extinct volcano crater. Pikaia Lodge is a stunning new alternative to explore the "Last paradise on Earth" in a comfortable and truly sustainable land based model.

The Pikaia Lodge concept is 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.

While on property, our guests, will enjoy active, quality guided land and marine day programs in small groups during the day. On property they will enjoy the state-of-the-art facilities and outstanding gastronomy and at night, they will rest in spacious and quiet accommodations.

Due to its central location in the Archipelago, the Santa Cruz Island provided us with the perfect opportunity to develop a 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.

In fact, guests will discover some of the most stunning wonders of the Galapagos right a the Lodge; just by taking a stroll guests can come face to face with a wild giant tortoise in from own private Tortoise Reserve!

Best of the Best

Eco-adventure experiences its own evolution at the visionary Pikaia Lodge. From its perch atop an extinct volcanic crater in the center of Galapagos National Park, Pikaia operates in a totally sustainable way utilizing alternative energy sources. Admire the commanding views from one of 14 glass-walled rooms or the infinity edge pool, and take part in guided tours both on land and at sea aboard the lodge’s own 105-foot exploration yacht. More than two miles of trails lead to exceptional beaches and endemic forests, where you just may cross paths with giant tortoises in the lodge's own reserve.

Hotel Tip

The steel-hulled M/Y Pikaia I — with its large dive deck, hot tub and stabilizers to reduce seasickness — is the only vessel of its kind in the Galápagos.
