About The Galapagos Islands

“The natural history of these islands is eminently curious, and well deserves attention.” Charles Darwin

Darwin’s theory of natural selection, along with tales of swooping blue-footed boobies, lumbering giant tortoises and bobbing marine iguanas have all contributed to the Galapagos Islands’ status as one of the most prized wildlife-watching destinations in the world. Even with sky-high expectations, the first-time visitor to the Galapagos is never disappointed; it is almost impossible to anticipate the sheer wonder before experiencing this isolated archipelago with your own eyes.

Located more than 600 miles from the coast of Ecuador, each of the 13 remote volcanic islands has its own unique landscape. Moon-like lava formations, lush highlands, tropical beaches and cactus forests are home to an abundance of often endemic creatures. To make your visit even more pleasurable, the wildlife appears to be fearless, inquisitively approaching you rather than the other way around, allowing some of the closest encounters possible with nature.
