Frequently Asked Tour Questions

    • Sometimes! We love having visitors and can often accommodate last minute tour requests, but sometimes we’re already out on a research project. WhatsApp us for last minute tour requests.

  • What should I wear?

    • You’ll be walking along paths that can be slightly muddy at times, so we do encourage you to wear appropriate footwear. We also suggest wearing pants or something that covers your legs, but it’s not a requirement.

  • What does the tour include?

    • You’ll learn about all of our initiatives and see first hand the work being done at the farm, all while learning from our founder Karina. We’ll cover the current state of agriculture on the Galapagos and it’s impact on the local environment and people, all while exploring the farm it’s self to see the agriculture techniques being practiced. For those up for the extra adventure, we’ll take a short tour of our jungle forest, where we’re researching new ways to grow and harvest native foods while keeping the forest standing, thus encouraging the preservation of forests all over the Galapagos.

  • Is the tour suitable for all ages and abilities?

    • Due to the low-impact trails connecting our farm with the forest we’re unable to accommodate those in wheelchairs, but anyone who can walk a narrow path for roughly 500 meters will be able to enjoy the full tour.

  • How do I spread the word about Huerta Luna?

    • We encourage everyone to share their photos from their Huerta Luna visit using the hashtag #HuertaLuna and #GalapagosSeeds, and to tag us on social media using @HuertaLunaGPS.
