Discover

The Galapagos Islands

Adventurers, scholars, photographers – and those who are a little bit of each – are drawn to the Galapagos Islands to discover for themselves this now legendary archipelago that lies far out in the southern Pacific Ocean. The remote and wild beauty of this protected region is home to what is often described as nature’s workshop, where our understandings of evolution and conservation were born and continue to develop today. See the nesting sites of birds that inspired Charles Darwin’s seminal theories, enjoy the spectacular flocks of blue-footed boobies and meet ancient giant tortoises. Choose from small ships with an educational focus or larger vessels that offer more luxury to find your own world of wonder on a Galapagos cruise.
