A family vacation to the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador is a trip that will be seared in your memory bank long after returning home. The fascinating landscape in this unique and important place on our planet, with surreal proximity to wildlife, creates the ultimate family travel engagement.
If you’ve wondered if kids will “get” enough out of a travel experience to justify the time and expense, here’s proof: I was invited to be a judge for Lindblad Expeditions’ Young Explorers Challenge, where kids who experienced one of Lindblad Expeditions’ selected ships put together presentations about their observations and takeaways. See the winning presentations prepared by kids ages 8 to 18 — a moving and unbelievable testament to the impact on our children of this kind of educational travel.
If you are considering a trip to the Galápagos or just want to live vicariously through photos, here is a collection of favorite moments from our expedition captured on film (click on any photo to start a full-screen slide show).
