The Galapagos Islands are a nature lover’s paradise, and home to the world’s most unique array of wildlife. Located hundreds of miles off the coast of Ecuador and isolated from the rest of South America, their lack of natural predators has created the greatest abundance of incredible wildlife such as seals, iguanas and giant tortoises in the world. The islands are a stunning haven for birdlife too, including blue-footed boobies, albatrosses, penguins and frigate birds.
Your time on the islands can be spent hiking across Isabela's volcano, snorkelling through underwater worlds, meeting near-extinct Galapagos tortoises or biking across wild terrain. Visit Charles Darwin’s Research Centre, the black sand beach of Puerto Egas or sea turtle nesting sites. Spot pink flamingos, marine iguanas or hundreds of fur seals; this really is every nature lover’s dream.
