Galapagos Tortoises

Behold the Giants of the Galapagos

Various species of giant Galapagos Tortoise can be found on a number of different islands of the archipelago. Though they can be seen in many parts of those islands, they tend to hangout in the highland areas where there is access to freshwater and cooler climes.

"We are so happy we decided to do a land based tour with Galapagos Alternative. It's the best way to go! They make the process of traveling to the islands simple and don't overcharge. Their use of local tour companies stimulates the local economy and gets you right in the middle of all the action on the islands."
