Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

More than 3.5 million years old, the Galápagos Islands are brimming with unique adventures and activities when you study abroad in Ecuador. Imagine trekking through the Amazon Rainforest, spending two nights in the Maquipucuna Cloud Forest, or scuba-diving in one of the marine coasts. You’re living on a volcano-covered island and spending afternoons studying iguanas and turtles larger than you’ve ever seen. If that doesn’t thrill you, we don’t know what will!
