Corona Virus (COVID-19) in Galapagos

Corona Virus (COVID-19) in Galapagos

last updated: April 1, 2020

Ecuador has confirmed 2302 cases of the virus and 79 deaths. This number is significantly lower than numbers in the US, Europe and Asia.

After having announced a 14-day quarantine for all visitors from Europe and the US, the Ecuadorian authorities announced on March 15th to stop all international flights to Ecuador from that day onwards. Outbound international flights from Ecuador only ran until Tuesday, March 17. The access to Galapagos will be closed as well as the land borders. These decisions are part of the measures to prevent and control the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ecuador.

For these reasons, we regret to inform you that all our Galapatours trips will be cancelled until the end of April 2020. We have already informed all passengers and are offering free re-booking of all cruise for any date until the end of 2021, excluding Christmas and New Years.

We are hopeful that by the end of April everything has returned to normal. We will monitor the situation very closely and reserve the right to take further action if necessary.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any further questions or concerns. Thank you!
