The Galapagos Islands are a living laboratory of evolution. The hot and frigid currents that meet at the Equator have produced an incredibly rich and unique diversity in the marine life. There are no predators, so the animals are friendly. It is literally possible to walk right up to blue-footed boobies, lava lizards, equatorial penguins, sea lions and pink flamingos without them scurrying off in fear.
On BikeHike's 10-day Galapagos land tour, we travel far from the crowds and cruises and view the islands from a very different perspective. We bob through the ocean surf by sea kayak, paddling alongside giant sea turtles, seals and bottle-nosed dolphins. Inland we whisk along dirt trails on bikes and our own two feet. We've built in plenty of time for snorkelling in the turquoise waters and for the certified, scuba diving is available as an optional activity (please note if you scuba dive you will miss a day of activity).
