A visit to the Galapagos Islands is an inspiring experience for most – the “holiday of a lifetime”. Immediately on arrival, you sense that you have landed in a place like no other on earth.
This collection of Pacific Ocean islands lies 1000 kilometres west of Ecuador. In 1959, 97% of the Galapagos Islands was made into a National Park and UNESCO has also recognised the Islands as a Man and Biosphere Reserve, and as a World Heritage Site. Pre-historic marine iguanas lounge on the black lava rocks while lazy sea lions bask in the sun. Astonishingly the animals don’t run away from visitors to this incredible land. Whether you want to experience the islands during a Cruise holiday, prefer a land based trip or a combination of the two – Worldwide Holidays will be able to arrange the most suitable itinerary for your needs.
