Exploring Galapagos on foot This famously diverse archipelago is a bucket list trip for good reason. But the vast majority of visitors only get to see the protected Galapagos Islands in short forays from their cruise ships or day boats. That's why the land-based vantage point on this Classic Journeys trip is so special — it offers the opportunity to experience that much more of the nature that inspired Charles Darwin. In addition to having expert naturalists take you to see the 500-pound tortoises, blue-footed boobies, penguins and marine iguanas by foot, activities include kayaking and snorkeling. Island-based visitors also get intimate experiences with local culture. The trip includes visits to a small family-owned coffee plantation and trekking to the rim of the second largest volcano caldera in the world.Galapagos Island Tour by Classic Journeys;  1-800-200-3887; monthly trips from $4,695 per person
