Vacations in the Galapagos Islands


A Wild and Wonderful Showcase of Nature's Diversity

Galapagos Overview

The Galapagos is nature at its most wild, wonderful and unusual, The islands are home to the world's only swimming lizard, the largest tortoise, the smallest fur seal and birds found nowhere else. The same rugged landscapes and unique wildlife that inspired Darwin's theory of evolution now intrigue and inspire visitors, and create a dramatic backdrop for adventures on land and sea. Trails lead through a range of microclimates that climb from desert lowlands o highland tropical forests. Hidden coves and deserted beaches await paddlers and snorkelers, and the emerald waters teem with life, including whale sharks, manta rays and swirling schools of hammerhead sharks.


The Galapagos attract a menagerie of big animals. Whales sharks, manta rays and scalloped hammerheads are the big tickets, but there are also silky sharks, sea lions, fur seals, eagle rays, sea turtles, penguins and diving iguanas.
