Isabela Express Visit
Isabela is the largest island of the archipelago, is the most wanted for several people, perhaps for the isolation sensation going there or maybe for the long walks on a white sand beach. Short of time? Get the most of an express visit. Two days and one night in this beautiful Island.
Sierra Negra Volcano
Diversity of Marine Wildlife
Visit the jewels of Isabela in just two days. Don’t miss the amazing snorkle in The Tunnels and hike up the incredible Sierra Negra.
The Tunnels consist of rocky formations – a series of arcs and tunnels underneath and above the water made by the flow of lava into the ocean. The calm, clear and shallow waters attract a great variety of sea animals and provide the perfect conditions for snorkeling. Afterwards, a short hike on the black and rough volcanic rock that welcomes the island birds allows visitors to see the different species close up on their nests and resting places.
The Sierra Negra Volcano is located 30min away from town, Puerto Villamil. It is the only volcano that can be hiked up to its crater in the islands, with no restrictions but to be in the company of a certified naturalist guide. We will hike the 12km (7,5 miles) trail starting from the National Park access control. It is a medium difficulty trail with a fare slope.
Once in a lifetime experience as you swim close by giant sea turtles, elegant manta rays, quiet and steady Pacific sea horses and curious and colorful coral reef fish. As required by the Galapagos National park, a naturalist certified guide will show you around as you encounter docile white tail sharks and other wildlife that makes Los Tuneles an exciting and unforgettable adventure.
Trekk up a 1124 meters (3687 ft) above sea level to the biggest crater you can see on the islands, 10km (6 miles) wide, the second in the world. Visit Sierra Negra volcano. Enjoy a great galapagos islands tour with our full day tour to the most visited volcano in Isabela Island. Along with a naturalist certified guide, explore magnificent views from the summit of this majestuous volcano.
This bird might look clumsy walking on the rock, short legs and slippery surfaces can be a perfect combination for falling, especially for young unexperice pinguins. The adult knows most of the tricks, jumping, sliding or walking sideway, but an unexpected wave or a sea lion can produce a falling. But underwater is another story, they “flight” gracefully and fast, changing directions and catching elusive fish, some times alone, or in group. Then a break on the surface of the water to breath or to rest. They nest on small cracks or lava tubes near to the shoreline, to avoid long walks.

The weather in the islands is generally warm but the water can get really chilly in the rainy season (starting in July through to December, the coldest temperatures being around September). Make sure you bring your windbreaker jacket for the boat ride. This is the perfect opportunity to bring along underwater cameras and get some award-winning shots of the marine life.
The Sierra Negra Tour goes from sea level to an altitude of 1100mts (3600 ft), it involves fairly steep climbing. The hike will last about 3 – 4h.
