FABLED ISLANDS AND ANCIENT WORLDS 

Two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Explore Quito’s Old Town then head to the Galápagos. Arguably the world’s most iconic marine habitat, this unspoiled archipelago is filled with exquisite creatures—giant tortoises, penguins, boobies, Darwin’s finches, Waved Albatross, and rowdy sea lions. Kayak, snorkel, hike, discover the unexpected as Charles Darwin did in 1835.
