A living museum and showcase of evolution, the Galapagos Islands are the ultimate bucket-list destination. From the distinctive wildlife that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution to utterly breathtaking volcanic landscapes, the Galapagos offers an unparalleled experience of discovery and amazement. Nature lovers and adventurers alike will find endless opportunities to explore and be awed by the islands’ rich biodiversity and raw, primal beauty.

Each island in the Galapagos chain possesses its own unique character. Sail between the islands aboard an expedition cruise and witness incredible wildlife encounters at every turn – from snorkeling alongside playful sea lions to coming face-to-face with the islands’ iconic giant tortoises. On land, hike through landscapes of twisted lava formations, cactus forests, and volcanic calderas teeming with life. The Galapagos is an open-air classroom and a source of infinite fascination for families, amateur naturalists, photographers, and anyone curious about our world.

While the islands’ natural bounty is the prime draw, visitors will also find a bounty of human culture and history to explore. Quaint towns like Puerto Ayora offer a glimpse into the unique Galapagueño lifestyle, along with top-notch dining, shopping, and hotels perfectly suited for downtime between adventure excursions. From luxury tented camps to sustainable eco lodges, the islands provide an array of accommodation to experience this once-in-a-lifetime destination in true comfort and style.

Travel Information

Unlike anywhere else on earth and home to some of the world’s most exotic animals; without the Galapagos Islands, Charles Darwin may not have been able to crystallise his theory of evolution which is now considered one of the most important scientific breakthroughs of all time.

Today, many species of animals can only be found in the Galapagos Islands and are classified as endangered. There are many restrictions regarding tourism, however, you can still visit this beautiful collection of islands.

See the giant tortoises trudging along the grass and the Marine iguanas lounging on the rocks. It is definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

Since the Galápagos Islands are a part of Ecuador, LGBTQ+ rights there follow the national legal framework of Ecuador. This means same-sex marriage is legal, and there are protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

However, the social acceptance and visibility of LGBTQ+ individuals can vary across different parts of Ecuador, including the Galápagos. Being a major tourist destination, the Galápagos Islands tend to be more liberal, welcoming travelers from all walks of life, including the LGBTQ+ community.

Head to the Galapagos National Park and observe so many of the wonderful animals exclusive to this part of the world.

Check out the Volcan Sierra Negra. This volcano last erupted in 2005. You may wish to go on a guided tour as it’s easy to get lost in the mist as you near the summit!

Visit the Lava Tubes in Santa Cruz. These fascinating structures were formed by lava millions of years ago.

    To fly to the Galapagos Islands you’ll need to travel via Quito in Ecuador. Quito can be accessed by a range of international flights (such as via Madrid or the USA).
