Silversea Expeditions Galapagos Cruises
Silversea Expeditions offer exciting Galapagos Islands Cruises on their new luxury ship, Silver Origin. Every voyage has been designed to combine a luxury onboard experience with the opportunity to venture off-the-beaten-path in one of the world's most fascinating regions.
Situated just west of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are a cluster of volcanic land-masses spread either side of the Equator. First discovered in 1535 by the Bishop of Panama when his ship got caught up in westward currents when en route to Peru, the region has captivated environmental experts and geologists for hundreds of years.
