This remote volcanic island archipelago, visited by Charles Darwin in 1835, and populated by a hugely diverse collection of plant and animal life, inspired the theory of evolution and natural selection. Lying around 1000km off the coast of South America, the distant location and true isolation of these exotic islands have created a unique display of nature that can truly be found nowhere else on earth. The Galapagos has been described as a 'Living Museum' and a 'Showcase of Evolution'.
Visit the exotic and far flung Galapagos Islands and the surrounding marine reserves to experience some of the most unique flora and fauna on earth, from the famous giant tortoise to the fur seal colonies and the many types of Finch that inspired Darwin and his world changing theories following his visit in 1835. Marvel at the iguanas and view the penguins, sharks and abundant marine mammal life in the seas off-shore, protected by their remoteness and their UNESCO designation.
There is no better way to experience the Galapagos islands than from a mega-yacht, and we currently have fantastic deals aboard the Celebrity Xpedition, to enable you to travel in relative luxury to this remote location. Take a look at the Celebrity Xpedition cruises to the Galapagos Islands below, and voyage in the wake of The Beagle to take in this UNESCO World Heritage site. Plus why not think about twinning your cruise with a fully guided Celebrity land tour to South America, Machu Picchu and the land of the Incas?
