Galapagos Islands

Location: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
 
A trip to the Galapagos Islands is a step back in time. Situated about 880 miles from the Ecuador mainland, it’s a place so remote that it remains unspoiled by human development.

If you want to imagine what the world might look like thousands of years ago, this group of islands will be close. It was formed and still continue to be formed as a result of volcanic activities underneath the ocean’s surface. It features elemental landscapes and an amazing variety of wildlife that has survived and evolved under the harsh environment.

Surprisingly, the birds and animals that live in the islands are so full of themselves. They have no natural fear of humans. They continue to mind their own business even when approached for a photo shoot.
