Thirteen islands, six lesser islands, 40 islets and their surrounding waters. The Galapagos islands form a province of the South American country of Ecuador, a national park, a biological marine reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a World Biosphere Reserve… and one of the most evocative cruise destinations in the world.
A cruise to the Galapagos Islands is a bucket list event for any nature lover. Its isolated ecosystem has made it home to some of the world's most extraordinary landscapes and creatures. The symbol of the Galapagos, the majestic giant tortoise, is joined by unique species like blue-footed boobies, penguins, marine iguanas, sea mammals, flamingos, whale sharks, lava lizards and more, still roaming free and fearless of humans in their home in the Pacific Ocean. Carefully-regulated numbers of visitors can walk among these creatures on land, and swim and snorkel alongside them in the waves.
An expedition cruise is the only way to reach this remote and pristine destination. Inspiration for Charles Darwin's theories, to a source of wonder for visitors today; there may be no better way to mark a milestone than treating yourself or loved ones to this life-changing cruise.
