The Galápagos Islands may just inspire you to think differently about the world. The enchanted islands are home of giant tortoises, sea lions, sharks and hundreads of plants.
Giant Tortoises can Weight over 270kg and living to be over 150 years old, they hold the record of the longest life span of any animal on Earth! They have adapted to survive months without water or food. Abundant endemic animals amazingly not scared of people inhabit the islands, so you will be up close and personal experience.
These 19 islands and the surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique ‘living museum and showcase of evolution’.
Located at the confluence of three ocean currents, the Galápagos are a ‘melting pot’ of marine species. The archipelago lay on either side of the Equator Line. Which means that there is summer all year long!
