Famous worldwide thanks to Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, the remote World Heritage-listed Galapagos Islands are situated in the Pacific Ocean and belong to Ecuador. On a tour of Galapagos Islands, you can witness the staggering amount of endemic wildlife the archipelago is noted for. Besides a couple of cities on the main islands, the landscape remains mostly pristine, as the guided tours follow strict rules and limit visitor numbers. Fascinating creatures, untouched nature, unrivalled snorkeling, scuba diving, and more await you on your Galapagos Islands trip.
