Explore the natural wonders and brilliant scenery of the Galapagos Islands

A short flight west from Ecuador’s capital lies one of the world’s most fascinating archipelagos. It is little wonder that Charles Darwin was so captivated with the islands making up this unique corner of the globe – everyone who visits is. From frolicking seals and frisky penguins, to clumsy blue-footed boobies and ancient tortoises, as well as an array of other endangered species, there has never been a better time to get lost in the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands.

  • Island hop around the archipelago by boat
  • Be dazzled while snorkelling in a rainbow of friendly fish
  • Gaze into the canny, old eyes of a Galapagos turtle
  • Better understand Darwin’s theory of evolution at the Charles Darwin Research Station
