The Galapagos Islands are truly one of natural wonders of South America and the world. Straddling the Equator about 600 miles east of Ecuador, this chain of small islands has fascinated visitors since the days of Charles Darwin.
And now it could be your turn. Win The Photo Expedition To The Galapagos, and you and a guest will spend 7 days and 6 nights in one of the planet’s most extraordinary places.
You’ll fly from the US to The Galapagos compliments of LAN Airlines, then cruise throughout the islands aboard one of the Galapagos Expedition Yachts operated by Ecoventura, a well-established and Rainforest Alliance verified Galapagos tour operator. These small ships (maximum 20 passengers) were designed specifically for Galapagos travel, and will serve as your home base for the week. From here, you’ll take Zodiacs or kayaks for on-shore excursions led by expert naturalists.
You’ll have the chance to swim and/or snorkel along side playful Sea Lions, Sea Turtles and perhaps even the Galapagos Penguin. You’ll hike trails and discover many of The Galapagos’ renowned species, including Marine Iguanas, colorful Sally Light-Foot Crabs and delightfully dance-happy Blue Footed Boobies.
You’ll travel by bus across Santa Cruz, one of the inhabited Galapagos islands, crossing all seven vegetation zones as you go. You’ll end up in a private reserve, where you’ll have the opportunity to see the legendary Galapagos Giant Tortoises in their natural habitat.
Of course, to document your once-in-a-lifetime adventure, you’ll want to take lots of photographs. Well, you’re in luck. The Grand Prize also includes a new EOS Canon Rebel T3i, as well as two stylish, handmade camera bags from ONA.
And to make sure you get the most from your new camera, professional photographer Nils Schlebusch will accompany you on your trip. Nils has shot wildlife and travel destinations all around the globe, and will be there to give you pointers and tips, so you, too, can shoot like a pro.
Grand Prize includes three meals a day aboard the ship, featuring a variety of cuisines prepared by culinary school-trained chefs, a fully-stocked bar and a 24-hour coffee and tea station onboard. The ship also features an open and shaded observation deck, ideal for watching wildlife during the day, and a sky teeming with stars at night. You’ll receive two copies of the Lonely Planet Guide To The Galapagos. You’ll also be treated to a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Center, where you can see even more wildlife, and learn about the scientific significance of this remarkable archipelago.
This Photo Expedition To The Galapagos is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
