Journey with us to Discover Galapagos...

Charles Darwin c 1840. Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835 on the Voyage of the Beagle. "It appears to me that nothing can be more improving to a young naturalist than a journey in distant countries..." 

The Giant Galapagos Tortoise is endemic to the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.











"The tortoise is very fond of water, drinking large quantities, and wallowing in the mud. The larger islands alone possess springs, and these are always situated towards the central parts, and at a considerable height. The tortoises, therefore, which frequent the lower districts, when thirsty, are obliged to travel from a long distance. Hence broad and well-beaten paths branch off in every direction from the wells down to the sea-coast; and the Spaniards by following them up, first discovered the watering-places."

- Charles Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle

The Galapagos Giant Tortoise may be seen at the Charles Darwin Research Station in Puerto Ayora and at El Chato in the highlands of Santa Cruz, at the Tortoise Reserve on San Cristobal Island and at Sierra Negra Volcano on southern Isabela Island. Most Galapagos cruises and tours include one of these visitor sites. Check out our Galapagos Guided Tour to get an idea of what other amazing wildlife you will be able to see and photograph on our Galapagos cruises and tours.
