Pikaia Lodge in the highlands of the island of Santa Cruz is a unique environmentally conscious way to experience the Galapagos Islands, offering adventurous land-based tours that are the last word in luxury, while preserving the unique ecosystem of the archipelago that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
