A group of 13 large islands and many small ones spread across the Equator in the Pacific about 1000 km west of Ecuador.

The islands originated around 4-5 million years due to tectonic movements forming mountain ranges of volcanic material. Some of the peaks of these volcanoes form the islands.

Hawaii and Galapagos are the islands with the most volcanic activity and they are considered “hot spots”. The most recent islands, Isabela and Fernandina, are still in process of formation registering recent volcanic activity (2009).

Tours for Galapagos coming soon!
