The Galápagos Islands are a nature and photography lover’s dream. This isolated group of islands two hours off the coast of Ecuador is home to thousands of unique animal and plant species and many are not found anywhere else on earth. A trip to the Galapagos Islands inspired Charles Darwin to devise the theory of evolution by natural selection. While I haven’t (yet!) discovered anything equally groundbreaking, our recent visit renewed my appreciation for the diversity and fragility of our natural world.
I created this photographic tour to show you some of the breathtaking landscapes and fascinating wildlife on the Galapagos Islands. Not every animal can be spotted on every island, so do make sure you tell potential tour operators which animals you most want to see so that you choose a tour that visits the right islands. We included some more tips for booking multi-day Galapagos cruise tours in the final link.
