You heard about Darwin in biology classes, but nothing comes close to seeing the islands he visited in person.  Blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, sea lions, giant tortoises  and even penguins can be found in these enchanted isles.  And if you ever get tired of the wildlife, laze on a beach or explore the backcountry volcanoes and lava tunnels.  The Galapagos Islands are paradise and they are yours to discover.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

Giant tortoises can weigh up to 500 pounds and there are 11 distinct species in the Galapagos.  They are most easily seen in the Tortoise Reserve in the Santa Cruz Highlands and at the Charles Darwin Research Station on the same island.  Wild populations are most likely encountered on San Cristóbal, Santa Cruz, and around Alcedo Volcano on Isabella.
