Galapagos


The Galapagos Islands are among the most beautiful and pristine places remaining on earth. Stark, rugged, and inhabited by some of the most bizarre creatures you will ever see, these young, volcanic islands offer a rare insight into what our planet was like before man conquered and cultivated large areas of its surface.

In the Galapagos Islands you can enjoy walking among the hundreds of marine iguanas on black lava rocks. See flightless cormorants, penguins, pelicans, sea lions,mangrove forests and much more.

The ground will reveal the beautiful shapes that lava forms once it has cooled off. All of the Galapagos reptilian species, nearly half of the bird species and roughly 25% of the fish found here are all endemic.

This means that most of the Galapagos Wildlife seen here cannot be found anywhere else on Earth, making the Galapagos Islands a true wildlife paradise. These animals became the inspiration for Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution and natural selection. The terrestrial and marine environments in the Galapagos Islands create a multiplicity of attractive and unique landscapes which have captivated generation of tourists and scientists.
