EVERY ISLAND IS A WORLD IN ITSELF

The Galapagos lies at the western-most corner of Western thought, a remote huddle of volcanic islets once deemed uninhabitable – one of human history´s most enigmatic corners and one of our planet´s last colonized territories, considered a wasteland in the eyes of pirates and poets alike. Yet, it has since been revealed to those who have craved to delve into its distant and obscure heart and soul, the secrets of life on Earth, the magic of evolution, the magnificence of survival, the parade of underwater diversity, the spectacle of volcanic geology and Mankind´s unfaltering hope of conservation.
Galapagos is one of the most ecologically relevant destinations in the world: a true crucible of science and wonder.
In the Islands, everything is special and attention is deserved everywhere. There is no place on earth that reveals this axiom quite like Galapagos.
