Galapagos Islands, Darwin's 'Laboratory of Evolution', where natures' most wonderful creations, unafraid of man, stay close for visitors and pose for tourists.
The Galapagos Islands lie almost a thousand kilometers off the coast of Ecuador's mainland. This Archipelago is world famous for its incredibly fearless and unique wildlife. Here, you can swim with sea lions, float with penguins, stand next to a blue-footed booby feeding its young, watch a giant tortoise lumbering trough a cactus forest, and try to avoid stepping on iguanas scurrying over the lava, the prehistoric animals and colorful birds you'll get a chance to observe.
See the sights of the amazing Isles, including the vast and wonderful wildlife like the giant tortoise or colourful finches. After all, it was the Galapagos Islands where Charles Darwin was inspired to construct his theory of evolution.
Today the Galapagos remain a living laboratory of evolution where birds and animals have no fear of man. Blue-footed boobies, flightless cormorants, land and marine iguanas and giant tortoises roam freely as they did thousands of years ago and anyone interested in natural history, wildlife and ecology will find a visit to these incredible islands an unforgettable travel experience.
This group of islands are an unpredictable wilderness, filled with an extraordinary population of unique species which have developed apart from humans and their dominating influence.
This volcanic archipelago has developed over thousands of years and is home to a huge variety of wildlife that has had no experience of man's existence and therefore, has never feared it. As a result, visitors are able to observe and photograph at remarkably close range.
