For wildlife enthusiasts, the Galapagos — whose isolation from mainland Ecuador has led to the development of unique, indigenous fauna — is arguably the best place in the world to visit. Whether you’re looking to take an expedition cruise or island-hop, our Galapagos specialists can help you access the Galapagos’s highlights — its species. The islands that make up the archipelago are home to a medley of fearless and sometimes rare creatures, from giant tortoises to waved albatrosses, marine iguanas, frigate birds, and sea lions. The pickings are just as rich underwater, as you snorkel alongside turtles, reef sharks, and fishes as bright as a Rubik’s Cube.
Our specialists can help you decide on the best way to spend your holiday in the Galapagos, whether that’s by cruising or opting for a land-based stay. They’ll advise you on all the practicalities involved in planning a Galapagos trip, and offer guidance on everything from packing to photography.
