Over one hundred and fifty years ago, the eminent scientist Charles Darwin visited the famous Galapagos Islands and discovered what would become the very seed of his theory of natural selection. The myriad of colourful creatures that still live there today were endlessly fascinating for such a man of science and clearly inspired him to further develop his theories on the origin of species. This seminal Galapagos Island visit ultimately led to the publishing of “On the Origin of Species” in 1859, which forms the basis of all evolutionary theory and biology.

Since its publication, this work has continued to provoke deep thought around the world and has stirred people from all walks of life to consider here we came from and where we are going. Thus, the importance of the Galapagos Islands was cemented, and since Darwin’s visit, it has been host to many hundreds of scientists and researchers seeking to walk in his famous footsteps and also to further his theories on the origin of all species on this planet.
An Adventure Holiday like No Other
Given the history of the Galapagos Islands chain, it is no surprise that thousands of people make the trip to these beautiful, mysterious landmasses each year to experience the unique environment for themselves. Perhaps they even drink in some of Darwin’s original inspiration for his groundbreaking ideas. To this end, there are a number of reliable and reputable companies that offer a Galapagos Islands tour that are both unique and memorable.
The Galapagos Islands themselves were formed millions of years ago due to sudden volcanic activity. Today they form a number of islands, reefs, and islets that are positively teeming with wildlife, including but not limited to:
  • Reptiles such as the marine iguana, the lava lizard, and the Galapagos tortoise
  • Flamingos
  • Dolphins and other sea creatures
  • Albatross and other unique birds
The islands themselves are largely unspoiled and it is important to maintain the environment there wherever possible through ethical touring.
Most of these types of tours also include other parts of South America, such as Ecuador, Peru and the Amazon rainforest.
The Benefits of Adventure
By indulging in a Galapagos Island tour, one might wish to imbibe the unique set of experiences and sights that Charles Darwin did in the mid-19th century. Even if one is not inclined or inspired to add to evolutionary theory, the fact is that touring these unique ring islands, formed millions of years ago, gives tourists a new perspective on our place in the world.

It is often said that travelling opens the eyes to other experiences and widens our worldview. By touring a unique and historically significant location such as the Galapagos Islands, one is prone to not only widen one’s worldview dramatically, but will also more greatly appreciate our unique place in the history of all life on earth. Truly, this is not something that can be said of most other holidays!
