Sierra Negra Volcano Tour

Spend the day exploring the volcanic landscape of Isabela Island, created by five side by side shield volcanoes, whose lava flows have united to form a landmass.

Make your way with a small group to the highlands and ascend to the volcano Sierra Negra. Although this is not the highest volcano at 1,200 meters, it has the second largest volcanic cone on earth, with a diameter of about 9 kilometers. In total, the hike covers about 8 kilometers of this interesting terrain, the first hour of which is uphill. The fruit of your labour is a magnificent view out over the island of Isabela. In the early afternoon you return to the small harbour town of Puerto Villamil.

Note: Please remember to bring high SPF sunscreen. The Sun's harmful rays can be very strong here.
