There’s nowhere on Earth quite like the Galapagos Islands. Those seeking a generic tropical paradise should look elsewhere, but true adventurers will find a destination that’s as fascinating as it is remote. In spite of its rugged and sometimes barren appearance, life on these islands has not just survived but thrived. At least part of this is due to the very light human footprint on the region, which allows visitors to witness the untouched natural glory of the Galapagos Islands much as Charles Darwin would have when he arrived on his historic voyage almost 200 years ago. A cruise around the islands provides the perfect balance of exploration and convenience - visit all kinds of breathtaking Galapagos Islands highlights without ever worrying about how to get to the next destination.
