The Galapagos Islands
Among the world's most well-known archipelagos, the Galapagos Islands are a top destination and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many of the plants and animals found here are found nowhere else on earth. The archipelago is part of modern day Ecuador and much of its land mass is actually a national park.
The Galapagos Islands remain a top choice for bird watching enthusiasts, scuba divers & snorkelers, and pretty much anyone with an affinity toward animals and the natural world.
Planning your cruise
Although we think the best way to explore the islands is by sea, a number of tour options exist for smaller expeditions or adventurous pre-arranged tours. Although you may find that you spend time on the water anyhow.
The expedition cruise industry serving the Galapagos has really matured during the last ten years, with the culmination perhaps resting with the Celebrity Flora. You don't have to have your adventure with a leading modern luxury cruise brand, however. A number of well-respected adventure travel vessels & expedition cruise ships specialize in Galapagos itineraries. You simply have to share your trip needs to receive expert guidance matching you up with the best supplier.
Do you have a specific experience in mind? If you're looking forward to enjoying something yourself, chances are that others will be, too! The best way to get the cruise you really want is to book early.
