Eco-Friendly Travel

Explore the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos islands are a top bucket list destination for many travelers. The 19 islands are located 563mi (906km) off the coast of Ecuador, accessible by direct flight from Quito or Guayaquil, and are now a UNESCO protected site.

Made famous as the destination that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection, the islands are home to unique plant and animal life, evolved in complete isolation from the rest of South America. With continuing seismic activity, the story of the Galapagos is not over – the islands are still physically changing, as are their plant and animal residents.
Some of the most famous inhabitants include the Galapagos giant tortoise, marine iguanas, giant cacti, endemic trees, the blue-footed booby and several species of finch, all of which you can witness on a once-in-a-lifetime Galapagos tour.
