Thirteen major islands, six minor islands and 42 volcanic islets make up Ecuador’s Galapagos Archipelago, and while most of these islands are known by both English and Spanish names, you’ll find the landscapes and wildlife on each isle to be singularly enchanting.It is against a contrasting patchwork of deserts, forests, volcanoes, beaches and cobalt water that International Expeditions invites you on a Galapagos cruise to discover the islands’ compelling wildlife.

Witness this fantastic microcosm of natural history by joining a true pioneer in Galapagos travel.Standing on the lava of Fernandina with a vista of volcanoes;snorkeling with a friendly sea lion;or sitting in a lush field on Santa Cruz watching the giant tortoises graze — these are the moments of sheer wonder you can expect on this small-ship adventure.IE invites you aboard the 32-guest演化, which offers the ideal retreat with spacious cabins, superb cuisine and a host of amenities.From the moment you arrive and see the first iguanas and sea lions basking on the dock where we board our Galapagos cruise ship, you will be delighted.And for all the documentaries and research most people have seen on these islands, nothing compares to the wonder of being here.
