Feeding tortoises

Named after the shape of giant tortoise shells, the Galapágos Islands are a treasure trove of marine and animal life some 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) off the Pacific coast of Ecuador. A trip to this remarkable archipelago of 35 volcanic islands is a truly unforgettable experience, a real, close encounter with extraordinary creatures that have no fear of man. Check out our video below feeding tortoises in the Galapagos Isands. These tortoises are fed once or twice a week at the criadero de tortugas on the island of Isabela.

Aracari offers private, tailormade tours to the Galapagos using luxury cruises, lodges for land-based expeditions or a combination of the two. Take a look at our example itinerary, History & Evolution, here.
