A fascinating archipelago with 13 major islands, and of which 5 are inhabited:

Santa Cruz, San Cristobal, Isabela, Floreana and Baltra.


Due to the distance from the rest of continental Ecuador, The Galapagos is home to a variety of endemic animal and plant species.


The archipelago of volcanic origin is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is located in the Pacific Ocean.


97% of the archipelago’s surface area is declared National Park.



Although the islands are close to the
equator, the water temperature is a relatively
cool 20 degrees, due to the cold „Humbolt“
and „Cromwell“ ocean currents.

Land temperatures depend on the location of
the island and on the altitude of the
volcanoes, varying between 20 and 30
degrees Celsius.

The rainy season in Galapagos lasts from December to May. The water and air temperatures are warmer, but daily drizzle also blankets the islands during intermittent spells. Strangely, the rainy season also features the sunniest skies and calmest seas of the year.
