Galapagos: The Enchanted Isles

A 14 day tour exploring these unique islands west of Ecuador in South America with an amazing variety of exotic animals, birds, plants and marine life which provide unrivalled photographic opportunities and close-up encounters

The Galapagos Islands, located 600 miles west of Ecuador, are justifiably one of the World’s great wildlife destinations. Made famous as the islands that formed the basis of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and his book On the Origin of Species, these enchanted isles are home to a stunning variety of exotic animals & birds.

The diverse range of species that live on these islands have no fear of man enabling us fabulously close encounters with many wonderful animals and colourful birds including Marine Iguanas, Giant Tortoises, Sea Lions, Magnificent Frigatebirds, Blue-footed Boobies, Waved Albatrosses, Land Iguanas and Galapagos Penguins.
