Galápagos Islands

The beginnings of a new philosophy were born on these famously protected islands.

Situated in the Pacific Ocean some 1,000 km from the South American continent, these nineteen islands and the surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique 'living museum and showcase of evolution'. Located at the confluence of three ocean currents, the Galapagos are a 'melting pot' of marine species. Ongoing seismic and volcanic activity reflect the processes that formed the islands. These processes, together with the extreme isolation of the islands, led to the development of unusual animal life - such as the land iguana, the giant tortoise and the many types of finch - that inspired Charles Darwin's theory of evolution following his visit in 1835.

  • Alexisdoll: Some months ago I went to the Galapagos Islands with some friends... the experience was just amazing, looking all that animals in the nature and without much to worry, is like the paradise. In most of the islands I visited there were lots of new things to discover and friendly people all over the Islands. The travel agency that I contacted was Gulliver Expeditions, they offer affordable and well designed tours, you can visit them at http://gulliver.com.ec have a good one! :)
