The emmeans package handles this quite easily. You can do something like this:

    model <- lm(log(y) ~ treatment + ..., ...)   # where treatment is a factor
    emm <- emmeans(model, "treatment", type = "response")
    emm    # shows the estimated geometric means
    contrast(emm, "pairwise")    # shows ratios of these estimates

A variety of models besides lm() are supported. The response transformation is detected automatically, and `type = "response"` tells it to back-transform. The delta method is used to obtain standard errors.
