Luxury Galapagos Yachts Available for Christmas
VIP Journeys has Luxury Galapagos Yachts Available for Christmas! Come and spend this Christmas eve in one of the most magical destinations of the world! We offer some of the best Galapagos Cruises on 3 smaller yachts still available for you to enjoy this Christmas in a different and special way.
Experiencing Christmas abroad is an amazing way to familiarize with a new culture. In Ecuador, we have so many beautiful Christmas traditions that will make you enjoy this special day to the fullest, we also have a way of making tourists feel part of our family. We celebrate Christmas on the 24th of December (Christmas Eve) with a big turkey meal with hot and cold side dishes and a particular delicious stuffing. Before the big day, most Ecuadorians pray the “Novena”, a special prayer telling the story of Jesus’s birth accompanied by Christmas carols and yummy hot treats. On board a Galapagos cruise, you will definitely get the Christmas feel with our lovely crew and professional chefs that will most definitely cook up a storm!
December is considered part of the Galapagos warm season. Although the weather is great all year round, December is a very special month. The water is nice and refreshing, it doesn’t rain too much and it is altogether a delicious warm place to spend Christmas! Plus, you will also get to see some animals that tend to shy away during other months such as; marine iguanas, sea turtles, flamingos, masked boobies and white cheeked pintails! Don’t worry, Santa Claus also has a pair of flip flops and swimmers and legend says that he uses sea lions to travel around Galapagos while his reindeer have a bit of a much deserved rest!
Since the weather is so perfect around Christmas holidays, swimming, diving and walking is so much fun. While visiting Galapagos in December one year, I got to swim with sea lions, marine iguanas and penguins as well as sunbake next to the cutest fury sea lions. You won’t only be spending Christmas in Galapagos, you can choose a cruise itinerary that best suits you! A longer 8-day cruise on one of our luxurious Yachts is perfect as you can enjoy Christmas as well as bring on the New Year on The Enchanted Islands!
When booking during Christmas season, it’s rare to find inventory on luxury yachts, we have three available for 2019; See below the Infinity, Grand Majestic and Cormorant. VIP Journeys has secured space for our best agents and inventory will go fast.
