Travel Galapagos will leave you with memories of unparalleled natural beauty. The Galapagos Islands are known for their numerous endemic species and the studies done by Charles Darwin that led him to establish his theory of evolution. The Galapagos Marine Reserve is the second largest marine reserve in the world.
Much of the charm of the islands is for their wonderful and unique species: iguanas, sea lions, turtles, penguins, boobies and much more.
This extraordinary natural laboratory was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1978. The Enchanting Islands consist of 13 major islands, 6 smaller islands, 42 islets and several rocks, which cover a total area of 7850 km ².
Currently the islands contain one of the world’s most active volcanic groups. Sports, like cycling, hiking, kayaking, surfing, diving and snorkeling, can be practiced. All of these exciting activities occur in a safe environment with unique landscapes.
The best way to travel Galapagos and discover the Enchanted Islands is to stay on cruise ships and sail to each island. A naturalist guide always travels on the cruise ships. Cruises normally run 7 – 14 days, starting at $2700 CAD ($2075 US). Some will include a few days in Quito, Ecuador’s capital city.
