Orbridge Travel
Trip Duration: 7 days
Undiscovered by Europeans until the 16th century, the Galápagos Islands played a central role in modern scientific and evolutionary history. With Isabela II as your home base, explore these fascinating islands and observe the iconic species that have exquisitely adapted to their environment. Since human presence is still relatively minimal, much of the wildlife is remarkably unafraid of visitors. You can photograph them at close range—while respecting their space—by sitting quietly near tropical penguins, observing giant tortoises, or snorkeling with inquisitive and playful sea lions.
