A group of students from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY were lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to Ecuador and to the Galapagos Islands. This is just one student's journal from the adventure..
By paddling, hiking and biking you get close to so many unusual birds and reptiles. I felt like we were in the Center of the Earth. I thought that it is impossible for birds to have blue feet- but here they are, living next to penguins on the equator.
For our honeymoon we wanted to do something fun and eco-friendly. Our trip was exactly what we wanted. It was a nature lovers paradise. And it was filled with good people, good food, and awesome adventures.
Neither the best coffee-table book nor video documentary begins to capture the Galapagos. Only walking (and biking) the ground, paddling the shore and snorkling the waters can give a sense of the beauty and fragility of this one-of-a-kind place
A fab adventure trip and experience with a great group and guide. Action packed and lived up to the description with activities. Each day was filled and we went to bed at night ready for sleep and to restore some older muscles. Memorable and great fun.
An absolutely amazing trip. The reason for the trip was to visit our daughter who was studing in Quito for a semester. We can't wait to go back to the Galapagos Islands. Adventure Life, great job booking everything, no problems anywhere. Beautiful place
Tanner picked a trip to Ecuador and even though his older brother and dad did not want to go we had an amazing experience that no one will ever forget and we had it together!
Imagine ... swimming with Green Sea Turtles or Sea Lions or Galapagos Penguins (that's right swimming),or having a baby waved albatrosses in the middle of your walkway. That and more is what we saw and did in 8 days on 11 islands.
Never a dull moment in the Galapagos, when I wasn't having my picture taken with a giant tortoise of sea lion, I was snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, biking or horseback riding through the remarkable landscape. An excellent Galapagos adventure!
