On the Pacific Ocean, 600 nautical miles away from the Ecuadorian continental coasts, lie the Galapagos islands, or “Columbus Archipelago”, also known as the "Enchanted Islands", the "Natural Laboratory", "Tropical Paradise", or "Noah's Ark", on behalf of their rich “ecological treasures.” The Galapagos Islands are made up of 13 main islands, 17 islets, and dozens of ancient rock formations. The volcanically formed islands, encompassing an area of 8,000 kilometers in all, lie roughly 1,000 kilometers off the coast of the Ecuadorian mainland. Apart from its beautiful beaches and unique and varied ecosystems, the Galapagos Islands are home to towering active volcanoes that reach altitudes up to 1,600 meters.
