Magnificent archipelago surrounded by the Pacific Ocean more than 1000 kilometers west of the continent, the Galapagos Islands are made up of some twenty islands and forty islets of volcanic origin. The Galapagos Islands were not discovered until 1535 and Darwin made them famous with his famous “Theory of the Evolution of Species”. The Ecuadorian government created a national park in 1959 on the island of Santa Cruz. It is the first site to be classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1978.
Our travelers come to the Galapagos Islands for a Passionate Ecuador journey, to observe its animals, mostly endemic to the archipelago with nearly 58 species of birds of which 28 are found only in the Galapagos. We can notably mention the most famous and prized animals such as giant turtles, iguanas (land and sea), sea lions, albatrosses, frigates (with the evil that swells its red neck to attract females) or even the blue and red legged boobies who parade in front of visitors who come with Voyages de Rêve.
In addition to the three largest islands, Santa Cruz, San Cristobal and Isabela, it is possible to include in your Ecuador Galapagos trip the other islands including those of Seymour Norte, Plaza Sur, Espanola, Floreana, Genovesa, Fernandina, Bartolome or Santa Fe. Each island has its specificity, its own landscapes and sometimes, certain animals are endemic to only one island.
