Visiting the Galapagos Islands is always a thrill, but some activities are more exciting than others. If you'd like to break away from traditional tour groups and really stretch your wings during your holiday, here are four fun, crazy things to do in the Galapagos.
1: Swim With The Sharks
Dive into the waters of Kicker Rock to snorkel like you've never snorkeled before. What makes the area so unique? Well, it's home to a group of hammerhead sharks! The guides promise that they're domesticated enough not to attack swimmers, but you never know.
2: Break A Sweat In The Lava Tunnels
There's a little-known series of caves near Santa Cruz where old volcanic eruptions have formed lava tunnels. It's a beautiful, breathtaking attraction if you're brave enough to try it!
3: Climb A Canopy
You're not afraid of heights, right? Trek to the top of Cerro Azul for an incredible aerial view of the entire island. Then zipline your way back to solid ground!
4: Feed The Sea Lions
All visitors stop by Darwin's famous island, but few are willing to explore beyond the cliffs and into Las Loberias, a beautiful bay where you can play in the water with turtles, trout and sea lions. The lions will even accept food right out of your hand!
These are just a few ways to break free of conventional "tourist" activities and really make the most of your trip to the Galapagos Islands. It's a one-of-a-kind place, so you should give yourself a one-of-a-kind experience!
