Visit the Galapagos Islands
An inspiring experience
An archipelago of several volcanic islands located in the Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos Islands lie about 650 miles (1,046km) west of Ecuador.
The Galapagos Islands are packed full of animals, plants and terrain that inspired Charles Darwin on his first theories of evolution. A definite high on any traveller wish list.
How to explore the Galapagos Islands
Owned by Ecuador since 1832, the Galapagos Islands are considered as a true natural history wonder. Here you can see sea lions, iguanas, flamingos, giant tortoise and the lava lizard. There are countless species on land and underwater here. The best way to explore the Galapagos Islands is by a boat tour with a specialist tour company. Most tour packages fly into Quito, Ecuador, then on to Baltra or San Cristobal airport in the Galapagos.
