Touring the Galapagos Islands

Awe-inspiring biodiversity in Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands

Visiting the Galapagos is an extremely special experience not only because of the diversity of wildlife on offer or, its history as the inspiration behind Charles Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’ but; instead of staying in hotels, you’ll travel around and stay on beautiful vessels. Sitting right on the equator, there is never a bad month or season to travel to the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos Islands are a hive of activity where every month there is something going on. In January, green turtles begin laying their eggs, while from June until the end of September you can spend time with the local penguins. Humpback whales begin to arrive to the islands in June and from July through to the end of September the seabird activity is at its peak. In August you can see the sea lions pupping, but if you wait until November, you can spend time snorkeling with the newborn pups or, round off the year in December watching the giant tortoise eggs hatch. The Galapagos is one of the greatest year-round wildlife experiences that allow you to get up close and personal with some of the rarest wildlife on the planet. Read more about South America’s best wildlife destinations…
