Incredible wildlife, dramatic scenery, biodiversity in the Amazon Basin and the magnificent highland cloud forest and the ancient archipelago of the Galapagos Islands make Ecuador an unmissable stop on your tour through South America.
The Galapagos Islands, is the world’s top natural-world destination. It was here that Darwin developed his theory of evolution and you’ll understand why when you see for yourself. The abundance of wildlife here is truly extraordinary. On land you might find yourself face to face with a 200-year old tortoise, witness to the blue-footed booby’s energetic mating dance, spy on the pre-histroic looking marine iguanas and lava lizards or watching the playful penguins interact. In the water you can kayak, swim, snorkel and dive with fur seals, sea turtles, manta rays dolphins, whales and hammerhead sharks.
