Machu Picchu & the Galápagos
There are places where “meeting the locals” isn’t limited to the human species—namely, the Galápagos Islands, the stomping grounds of blue-footed boobies and marine iguanas. Ecuador protects this volcanic Pacific archipelago as a national park, and the native species are isolated from predators, so they have little fear of humans. During our Machu Picchu & the Galápagos expedition, we visit these remote islands with a Trip Leader who is certified naturalist. Prepare to encounter a seasonally varied parade of creatures, among them sea lions, sea turtles, and Darwin’s finches—named for Charles Darwin, who did groundbreaking scientific research here.
