About this trip

The Galapagos Islands are among the most magical protected places on earth. It is no wonder that National Geographic lists it as the number one must visit national park in the world! On your yoga holiday you will be whisked away by speedboat to the remote Isabela Island and your beach front hotel. We will spend 7 nights here experiencing, on land and sea, Darwin's theory of evolution. Sea turtles, penguins, sharks and whales, and a multitude of bird species call this special place home.  Isabela island is also home to more wild tortoises than all other islands combined, as well as a tortoise breeding centre. It also boasts a wild colony of flamingos right in town, easily accessible on foot.


You will have opportunities to swim & snorkel, hike & bike and even perhaps kayak & surf! All this fresh air outdoor activity will be balanced with daily yoga practice. The yoga classes are for all-levels and beginner friendly, so no experience is necessary. This is the perfect time and place to dive into and evolve your yoga practice, as well as your connection to nature! There will also be plenty of time to relax and sip coconuts on the empty beach in front of the hotel for a balance between an active and restorative holiday. Get ready for an unforgettable Galapagos yoga holiday of a lifetime!
