What is the altitude like?
Although the Galapagos Islands are at sea-level, the altitude in nearby Ecuador is actually quite high—around 9,350 feet! This is definitely something to consider when travelling to the Galapagos, as you need to give your body time to adjust. We recommend taking it easy for the first day or two, and allow your body to acclimate.
Is this destination suitable for children?
Absolutely! We work with local naturalists and guides that create one-of-a-kind experiences and can gear any tour or activity towards families and children. Because of all the wildlife, this destination is extremely popular for families looking for some adventure.
Which islands should I visit?
The islands that comprise the Galapagos are all very different and diverse. They can vary in geological formations, so it is important to speak with a Brownell advisor to determine which islands are best for your interests.
