All About the Galapagos Islands and Why Everyone Wants to Visit This Remote Destination

The Galápagos Islands of Ecuador are becoming a must-see destination for their remarkable natural environments with native wildlife in sea and on land, incredible shore excursions, ecotourism, and delectable restaurants.

The Galápagos Islands offer 19 volcanic islands, with Galápagos tortoises settling to give birth on Isla Bartolomé.

Stroll or hike on land with flamingos and iguanas. Mountain bike in Santa Cruz or San Cristóbal- the off-beaten paths are sure to provide the thrill of a lifetime. Explore the waters in a Zodiac boat, snorkeling and diving with the sea lions and sea turtles, or tour the National Park.

Join local companies and associations working to preserve the natural habitat of the Galápagos. The Natural History Museum is a place of wonder and education offering visitors a look back in history of the Galápagos Islands.
