The Galapagos Islands, unique at every turn

The Galapagos Islands, unique at every turn

Remote archipelago offers exceptional nature observation.

By Eva Stelzer

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most incredible wildlife-watching destinations in the world. Besides the sheer spectacle of the place, this remote archipelago is a land of cactus forests, stark lava formations, lush green highlands, turquoise bays and quintessential tropical beaches, and unique and abundant wildlife at every turn. As a bonus, the location of this archipelago at the earth’s equator makes it a perfect year-round travel destination.

The weather is relatively constant for 12 months of the year and there is always – as one would expect – 12 hours of daytime and 12 hours of nighttime. One of my favourite parts of travelling to the Galapagos Islands is clear illuminated night skies unobstructed by the hue of man made lights.

Darwin himself marvelled at the amazing animals found on the Galapagos Islands. Large and small, the islands are filled with unique species that delight the eye and capture the imagination. With that in mind, here are our 5 must-see Galapagos animals.
