Meet the Galápagos Tortoise


Galapagos virtual tour — At Travelnitch, we create opportunities for shared learning, so parents and children can explore the world together.

We deliver new and exciting experiences to encourage dialogue and provoke curiosity. For that reason, we have three primary goals: – Strengthen the bond between parent and child through a shared love of travel. – Forge a more meaningful connection between kids and the world around them. – Promote creative learning to inspire a lifelong passion for exploration.

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!

Meet the Galapagos Tortoise

The Giant Tortoise is the largest living species of tortoise, weighing up to 900 pounds! They exist in only two remote areas of the world: the Galápagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador and Aldabra Islands in the Indian Ocean, east of Tanzania.

This magnificent creature can live to be over 100 years old and is one of the longest-living vertebrates. Spanish explorers, who discovered the islands in the 16th century, named them after the Spanish galápago, meaning “tortoise.”
