Take a trip to the world-famous Galápagos Islands! The volcanic Galápagos Islands are known the world over for their incredible number of indigenous wildlife. Get up close and personal with the Galápagos tortoise, known to live up to 150 years. You’ll also meet marine and land iguanas, penguins, sea lions, and many species of birds. Snorkel among angelfish, manta rays, and sea turtles; and learn to sail. We’ll then head to mainland Ecuador for a thrilling day of whitewater rafting; a challenging yet rewarding hike around the country’s most beautiful volcanos; and a well-deserved visit to the world-famous hot springs of the Andes.
