When is the best time to visit the Galapagos islands?

 

It’s one of the first questions travellers planning a trip the Galapagos ask. Answered simply, it depends what you want to see.

Climate and currents vary over the course of the year and along with the seasonal changes come changes in the activities of Galapagos’ famously unique wildlife. Not to mention events on the calendar of the introduced species homo sapiens.

To learn what is going on where and when throughout the year take a look at Galapagos Travel Planner’s What Happens series of articles which note the highlights to be seen in the islands each month.
