The Galapagos is a nature-lover's paradise. Over 90% of the archipelago is under the protection of the Galapagos National Park, with the remaining area incorporating the small settlements on the islands. The endemic wildlife is abundant and unafraid of humans - you can literally walk right up to a booby and swim amongst the sea lions. Despite lying on both sides of the equator, the climate is quite temperate.

We explored the Galapagos for a week aboard a 20-passenger tourist boat, the Flamingo I (identical to the Eric and Letty). The accommodations were quite comfortable, the food was delicious, and the itinerary was perfect for experiencing the diversity of the islands. We booked our trip through ExpeditionTrips.
