Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland

Visit a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos Archipelago! Upon these fascinating and remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a wonderland of nature, with a remarkable collection of plants and charismatic animals that have adapted to this unique environment. Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea salt from their noses. Dive into the ocean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles from their natural habitats.
