Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin with an unforgettable holiday to the Galápagos Islands. Set 600 miles off the mainland, a visit to this archipelago will undoubtedly be a very special and unforgettable experience.
The wildlife on these volcanic islands are fearless so it is possible to get remarkably close to them. The variation of flora and fauna here is constantly surprising - at times seemingly intentionally so. Giant cacti with long, threatening spines, which are actually soft. Birds with bright blue feet, iguanas that swim....the list goes on. Beneath the waves marine iguanas, penguins and dolphins compete for your attention and wild sea lions actively come to play with snorkelers, peering at you through your mask and swirling round, under and above you.
Explore the islands with expert guides and either choose to stay on board a boat or in a hotel on one of the Islands.
Our South & Central America specialists will advise you on the best options. Senior professionals with a passion for travel and a wealth of experience, with their knowledge of the destination they will inspire you by recommending places to visit and things to do as well as suggesting the best way to do them

Top Tips From Our Experts
The Galapagos Islands should be on everyone's bucket list and I suggest that you push the boat out and book as long a trip as you can. The wildlife on each island is unique and spectacular - you will treasure every minute you spend here.
Adventure tours offer both cruising and land based touring options. Land based touring offers fantastic opportunities to see a lot more wildlife and nature walks, whereas cruising offers diving and a lot more marine life viewing opportunities.
