Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland 3D

Discover a paradise unlike any other.
In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos Archipelago. Amongst these fascinating and remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a wonderland of nature, with a remarkable collection of plants and charismatic animals that have all adapted to this unique environment. Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt from their noses. Dance with tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Dive into the ocean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles from their natural habitats.

Around the archipelago, converging cross-winds and deep, cold, nutrient-rich currents have made possible a unique and bio-diverse marine oasis, which boasts everything from abundant microscopic plankton to Galapagos sharks. “Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature’s ingenuity, all brought to life in stunning 3D. You’re invited to explore these extraordinary and enchanted islands, whose remarkable inhabitants helped change the way we understand nature.
