Explore the Galapagos Islands
The Galápagos Islands consist of 13 major and 12 minor islands off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. In 1835, Charles Darwin wondered at the unique wildlife here, which led to his theory of evolution. Visitors today continue to marvel at species that developed without influence from the mainland and are found nowhere else in the world.
Contact with humans and the absence of predators have acclimatised the island wildlife to visitors, allowing you to get relatively close to the animals here – one of the most extraordinary features of this unique destination. Apart from the varied wildlife, these relatively young volcanic islands offer distinctive geography and geology.
