Pikaia Lodge - Remote Getaway On The Galapagos IslandsPikaia Lodge  

Hidden on top of an extinct volcano crater on the Galapagos Islands, the Pikaia Lodge is an incredible getaway for those looking for an environmentally-conscious retreat. The Lodge is carbon neutral and powered by alternative energy sources that don’t pollute or emit greenhouse gases. With just 29 rooms, folks at the lodge can adequately serve all guests to make everyone feel personally cared for. The lodge derives its unique name from the “Pikaia Gracilens,” which are believed to be the first creature to evolve into a vertebrate and are our oldest known ancestors.

Travelers can look forward to connecting with nature as the lodge offers several exploration packages and day tours. Whether you’re looking to kayak, hike, or scuba dive, adventure seekers have a plethora of options.

Work up an appetite while discovering the beauty of the Galapagos and grab some of the finest cuisines at the Evolution Restaurant. Furnished with a contemporary style, guests are encouraged to dine in “casual elegance.” A candle-lit dinner under the stars is also available upon special request. Grab a drink at the “DNA” Bar and Lounge or take a break in the “Homo Sapiens” Explorers Lounge (noticing a theme yet?). The Lodge library is also dedicated to topics of “science, evolution and the Galapagos.”
