Set in the Pacific Ocean 1000km off the coast of mainland Ecuador, and intersected by the equator, the Galapagos Islands are an otherworldly volcanic archipelago hosting jaw-dropping scenery and an abundance of unique wildlife. With just 3% of the Galapagos Islands falling outside of Galapagos National Park and only four of the islands being inhabited, it’s no wonder that this little corner of the world is a leading destination for wildlife viewings.

Consisting of 18 main islands and further minor islands offering varied landscapes and panoramic ocean views, each island offers different habitats. What’s unusual about this archipelago is that some animals are only found on one island, while others can be found on multiple islands, but with species differing greatly depending on which island they call home.
