The first to be inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, the Galapagos Islands are described as a "living museum and showcase of evolution." See why this archipelago is so cherished on a guided, land-only expedition for $1299 per person.
This weeklong adventure from Red Mangrove drops travelers in among five-foot-long tortoises, whitetip reef sharks and the caldera of an active volcano -- all while saving as much as $900 per person compared with similar in-depth tours.
