As a passport to local culture goes, culinary explorations have traction: they now factor into the travel agendas of curious gourmands from Bali to Baja California. The Galápagos isn’t a place that intuitively makes this list, but the enterprising operators of adventure cruise line Lindblad Expeditions (expeditions.com; from £5,730 for a seven-day Galápagos cruise) have committed to local sourcing across every level of service and experience on their South American cruises. While guests enjoy delicious preparations of Andean superfoods – from maca and amaranth to chucho and cocoa nibs – small farms across the continent, from Costa Rica to the Falklands, are working with them to provision on spec; a Galápagos-based farm produces exclusive specialty provisions for the ships. It’s one more thoughtful way the Lindblad team really walks the sustainability talk.
