Map-Galapagos-IslandsLocated in the Pacific Ocean approximately 650 miles from the coast of Ecuador, The Galapagos Islands are one of the world's most unspoilt areas and the birthplace of Darwin's Theory of Evolution.

The remotely located animals and natural plants found in this area are totally unique, their existence and evolution shaped by the landscape all around them.

Formed over a volcanic hot spot, lava continues to flow deep under the water until at some point it breaks the surface to form a new Galapagos Island, such as Isabella or Fernandina, the scene of the last volcanic eruption in 2009.

DarwinsThe area is rich in wildlife boasting amongst others Pelicans and Penguins; the flightless Cormorant; Waved Albatross; the Blue-Footed Booby, the Iguanas and of course, gigantic Tortoises. There are opportunities to see the unique plant life by taking a walk over the lava fields to explore natural pools and swim with the Turtles and Sea Lions. And, if the season is right, watch a variety of whales as they swim past.

Boat-arrivesVisits to the islands are strictly controlled and under constant threat that the numbers that travel there each year may be further curtailed.

Whilst there are options for all budgets, most agree that to get the best experience it pays to join one of the specialist cruises which can take you around a combination of the 18 islands that make up the archipelago.
