The Pikaia Lodge Concept
A new step in the evolution of luxury eco-adventure in the Galapagos Islands

Balcony Rooms - Pikaia LodgeThe Pikaia Lodge concept is designed for the environmentally conscious, physically active and adventurous traveler, who seeks close contact with the unique natural wonders of the Galapagos, with the highest level of comfort and services that could be reasonably provided within the limitations of such a remote, restricted and eco-sensitive location. 

There is no lack of privacy, nor seasickness, nor confined spaces of the typical yachts or cruises.  As our Pikaia Lodge guest, you will enjoy active, quality guided land and marine day programs in small groups with up to 16 guests.  At night you will rest in spacious and quiet accommodations.  

Pikaia I Yacht - GalapagosSanta Cruz Island provided us with the perfect opportunity to develop our unique land-based day tour concept, since some of 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 M.Y. Pikaia I.  In fact, you will discover some of the finest beaches of the Galapagos in Santa Cruz Island.  

Just by taking a stroll, you can come face to face with a wild giant tortoise - Pikaia Lodge has its own private Tortoise Reserve on the property. 

Pikaia Lodge is one of the most advanced green lodges built in the world. It operates with alternative energy resources and has a comprehensive social responsibility program.

Pikaia Lodge Property
A Stunning Location With Breathtaking Views

Pikaia Lodge perched atop volcanic craterPikaia Lodge is perched on top of two extinct volcanic craters.  It offers one of the most spectacular view points in the Galapagos - a great scenic destination in itself. 

Pikaia Lodge's 31 hectares of property and private wild giant tortoise reserve are located 450 meters above sea level in the transition zone between the sunny, arid savanna and the lush tropical mist forest of the volcanic highlands.  Given its unique location, the Lodge has a special microclimate: warm and sunny with fresh breezes for most of the year, and therefore, mosquito free! During the cooler "garua season" our property is occasionally shrouded in mist.  At this time, from July to November, the wild tortoises migrate from the arid zone up to Pikaia for grazing. 

Pikaia Lodge PropertyOnly 3% of the entire Galapagos land mass is private land for the use of farms and towns, while 97% is National Park area and is protected from development. 

Before Pikaia acquired the property in 2006, it was a cattle ranch.  All native vegetation and trees had been cut down and replaced by pasture.  Six years ago Pikaia undertook the titanic task of restoring this property to its original natural state. We have engaged in an ambitious program of reforestation with native, endemic species and have set favorable conditions for the wild tortoises and birds to return.
