A tailor-made adventure tour to the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador is a must for any budding scientist or nature-lover, what with their exceptional landscapes and marine life. The archipelago, made up of 13 main islands encircled by swathes of azure sea, is famous for its totally unique endemic species which were paramount in the development of Charles Darwin’s evolution theory. Today, it is more enticing than ever.
Flora and fauna in the Galapagos
A cluster of volcanic outcrops strewn off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are home to some of the most extraordinary flora and fauna in the world. This is owed to their general isolation up until the mid-20th century, allowing an astonishing array of creatures and plantlife to evolve according to the unique geography of these far-flung islands. So, you can expect the unexpected on a wildlife tour in the Galapagos, with the chance to encounter everything from languid Giant Tortoises to playful Sea Lions, loved-up Frigate Birds to brightly-footed Boobies; and much more in-between.
Cruises or land-based lodges in the Galapagos
A custom adventure tour in the Galapagos can be tailored to suit your every need and taste. You can wake up in a different location each day on a luxury Galapagos cruise, packing in as many nature walks, snorkelling excursions and beach visits as possible. Each cruise sails a predefined route, but there is a wide array of vessels, itineraries and cruise durations to ensure you find the one that’s right for you. Or, if you’d prefer to stay on terra firma, opt for one of the many sumptuous Galapagos eco-lodges found across the region, hopping from island to island and making the most of fantastic day trips. However you decide to discover the archipelago, prepare to enter an utterly unique world, beloved by explorers, scientists and Charles Darwin himself.
Ecuador mainland and Galapagos adventures
As the Galapagos Islands are Ecuadorian, the fastest way to reach the archipelago is by flying from Quito or Guayaquil, with a flight time of no more than 2.5 hours. Therefore, a great option is to explore more of the country’s highlights on a multicentre Ecuador and Galapagos trip – why not stay a few days in Quito to discover its beautiful colonial Old Town? Or, hot-foot it to the Amazon for more nature and wildlife experiences – this is one of the world’s last great wildernesses, after all!
