Luxury Adventure Travel to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands

Nothing sounds more exotic or exciting than luxury adventure travel to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands. Let's take these one at a time and see what you would be getting if you indulged yourself with luxury adventure travel of this kind.

First the Galapagos Islands. Luxury adventure travel to the Galapagos Islands is following the footsteps of Charles Darwin and the Beagle, as he formulated his theory of evolution by studying the life forms on these islands, untainted by human hand for thousands of years. You can try to spot the blue-footed boobies waddling among the hundred year old 600 pound tortoises, or seek out the Amblyrhynchus, a three-foot long, iguana resembling a dinosaur that lives only on these islands.

For many of us the impression was of an elderly man looking like the winner of a George Bernard Shaw lookalike contest arriving in the uninhabited islands to discover unique mutations of various animal species. The reality is somewhat different. First, Darwin was only 26 when he visited the Galapagos and it took him another 25 years to advance his theory in The Origin of the Species.
