The Islands - The Galapagos Islands

No visit to the Galapagos is complete without visiting the separate islands that make up the archipelago. In all, there are 21 young volcanic islands and over 107 rocks and islets to explore, each harbouring their own endemic species and micro-climates. Travel from one to the next and blue footed boobies are replaced by flightless cormorants, land iguanas by giant tortoises. There are even 15 separate species of finches which, above all, proved so important in developing Darwin’s theory of evolution. And this is the beauty of the Galapagos. Each boat has its own unique itinerary from 7 day northern and southern circuits to small 4-5 day loops and we have listed the key islands and visitor sites below to help you decide on the very best cruise.
