The Galapagos Islands are a bucket-list destination for good reason: Thanks to a lack of natural predators, friendly wildlife such as playful sea lions and gigantic sea tortoises let visitors get up close and personal. There are as many as 26 endemic species among the islands including Darwin’s finches, Galápagos giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and Galápagos penguins. This is one of the only places on earth where you can see these animals in their natural habitat.
Bartolome Island is an enchanting landscape where lava, mangroves and golden sand converge and a chance to snorkel with Galápagos penguins. Santiago offers close encounters with Galápagos fur seals and you will experience black sand beaches in Isabela Islands. There is so much to explore in the Galapagos Island that one trip just isn’t enough.
