EXPLORE THE GALAPAGOS WITH YOUR TEAM?

Incentive Travel Ecuador & Galapagos

The legendary Galapagos Islands are an absolute highlight of Ecuador and are only accessible through direct flights from Quito or Guayaquil. This vast archipelago of volcanic origin is home a host of wild animals on the land, in the sky and underwater, which are carefully protected in a thousand year old ecosystems, the place where Darwin’s theory of evolution originated. Giant tortoises, playful sea lions, blue-footed boobies, penguins, flamingos and iguanas, you can experience them extremely up close. These are only some of the highlights. Follow in Charles Darwin’s footsteps.

All-inclusive cruises are available from 4-days. Ideal for a short incentive trip! Feel free to contact us to explore the different possibilities.
