Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are found 500 miles east of its parent country of Ecuador. This volcanic archipelago straddles the equator and consists of 18 larger islands, 3 smaller ones and a number of islets and rock outcroppings. Strictly protected by environmental laws, this rich oasis of birds, reptiles, and sea creatures drive its economy and lifestyle. When you go determines what you will see, and how best to access this wildlife wonderland. Our Travel Insiders have island connections to make sure you realize your dream trip to the Galapagos islands.
