The Equator seems to have a special fascination for travel, with many of the world’s most famous travelers on record, as well as many world travelers discovering its crossing. In relatively recent history, Alexander Humboldt admired and studied the diversity of nature along the equator during his trip to America from 1799 to 1804, followed by the world-famous Charles Darwin. Visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835: impressed by its unique nature, flora and fauna, he was inspired to write his theory of evolution.
In addition to the innumerable globetrotters who have traversed the equator, there are several recorded trips by some of the world’s most well-known travelers. Alexander Humboldt admired and studied the diversity of nature along the equator during his American journey from 1799 to 1804. Subsequently, the world-famous Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835 and was inspired to write his theory of evolution by their unique nature, flora, and fauna.
