This unique itinerary allows you to cross from island to island in the most unusual of ways – by small plane – yet allows you more in-depth time on the island. With your private guide, you’ll be among the privileged few who will NOT be exploring the islands in a group.
There are times in your life when you realize that you just have to make the most of your life. And that’s when you look at your bucket list and decide that this is the time you need to head to one of the Top 10 Wildlife Destinations in the world!
Literally in the middle of nowhere, the Galapagos Islands were born in a violent volcanic explosion millions of years ago. They are located more than 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, just below the equator. Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution and of the survival of the fittest came to being right here on these 13 islands. Also known as the “Enchanted Islands,” the Galapagos is home to some of the world’s rarest and most exotic wildlife. Whether you’re aged 7 or 77, the Galapagos Islands are perfect for all kinds of adventure-seekers who love wildlife and water.
