The Galapagos holidays


A trip to the Galapagos Islands – 1,000km west of mainland Ecuador – is an unforgettable experience.

These islands are renowned for their fearless wildlife and you should prepare for some extraordinary (and up close) encounters.

In the Galapagos you can snorkel with penguins and sea lions, glimpse seal pups, watch giant tortoises lumber through cactus forests and behold the courtship displays of the blue-footed booby and frigate bird.

Choose from a variety of luxury Galapagos expedition cruises and island-based expeditions to get the most from your visit.
