The famed Galápagos Islands, with their volcanic, otherworldly landscapes, are a magnet for wildlife lovers. Until their discovery in 1535, the islands were totally isolated from the mainland. Over thousands of years, many species of birds, reptiles, insects, and plants drifted or flew to their shores, creating the unique natural environment found in the Galápagos today. The Islands have never been connected to a continent, so the species had to adapt to the unique ecosystems of the Islands and many of them are very different from their continental ancestors and are not found anywhere else. Until recently, the animals on the Islands had no exposure to humans and therefore never learned to fear them and remain extremely tame in human presence. At the end of his journey around the world, Charles Darwin, arrived at the Galápagos Islands in September 1835. The scientific findings he made here were the basis of his work "Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection" which completely changed the course of natural science. The islands’ nickname "Las Islas Encantadas" (the enchanted islands) is well earned: there are prehistoric looking land iguanas, several species of giant tortoises, doe-eyed sea lions playing with you while you snorkel, moon like landscapes and mist-covered volcanic peaks, red sand beaches, strange forests of prickly pear cactus, vividly pink flamingoes, the biggest colony of albatrosses in the world, blue-footed boobies performing their "sky pointing" dance, and hunting penguins swimming around your legs.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
