Galapagos Cruises and Galapagos Tours with Metropolitan Touring
Galapagos Islands Cruises
The Galapagos Islands rank among the world’s most extraordinary wildlife destinations. Although everywhere in the world is ‘unique’, the islands are that much more unique than other places due to the archipelago’s isolation over millennia. Here, species have evolved amid the stark volcanic landscapes into new and apparently strange forms that exist nowhere else on the planet. Not only that, the creatures one encounters are fearless of humans. It’s a truly magical place. The Islands were named after the giant Galapagos tortoises that looked similar to the galapago Spanish saddle to the first explorers in the 16th century. The archipelago began to emerge above a volcanic hotspot in the Pacific Ocean six million years ago.
