Background to Amazon & Galapagos Tours
Golden-lion tamarinds and neon-blue macaws, capybaras and hundred-year-old tortoises: South America’s wildlife is legendary. On this once-in-a-lifetime tour, you’ll have the chance to come within touching distance of these and other species as you venture into two of the most important bio-reserves on the planet, the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rainforest.
Your adventure begins with a canoe expedition deep in the jungle, where you’ll be surrounded by the screams and smells of countless exotic birds, mammals, and insects. From your thatched-roof rainforest lodge, you’ll climb high above the jungle’s canopy to glimpse the vastness of the Amazon, before returning to ground level to track caimans and river otters.
Later, after a brief stopover in civilization, in the dazzling Andean city of Quito, you’ll travel to the Galapagos, where Darwin made the observations that culminated in his epoch-making theory of evolution. Here, on your extended island cruise, you’ll meet finches, sea lions, and tortoises so unspoiled by outside predators that they come right up to you as you cross their path.
Best of all, throughout your adventure, you’ll have with you our expert guides, who’ll teach you about the species you encounter and the ecosystems they inhabit. They’ll make sure your hikes are as informative as they are comfortable.
