Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands lie in the Pacific Ocean 1000km from the Ecuador mainland. The 19 islands and surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique living museum and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. The Galapagos Islands are nature’s wonderland where you can see giant tortoises and witness the exotic blue-footed booby or swim with playful seals. Taking a cruise in the archipelago is the best way to explore the Galapagos Islands. All the cruises offer a variety of activities including kayaking, snorkeling, swimming and excursions led by naturalist guides. The islands are a melting pot for wildlife enthusiasts and there are many opportunities to walk amongst sea lions, land iguanas, frigate birds and penguins. The weather from January to June is typically warmer but with some rain, July to December is cooler and drier. To travel to the Galapagos Islands, flights operate from Quito and Guayaquil. There are many variations in Galapagos cruise itineraries, with each group of islands offering a unique experience.

I work with The Travel Specialists every time for travel packages to Africa and India and I can confirm that their knowledge and expertise are exceptional.
