Sierra Negra, Isabela

(300+ reviews on the web)
Volcano Nature / Park
See the aftermath of recent lava flows at Sierra Negra, where the caldera ranks as the largest volcano on the Galápagos Islands. Since its last eruption in 2005, the shield volcano has continued to release heat and gases, without any major events. Take a guided tour to the volcano to learn about the geological phenomena that created it. If you put your hands over a hole in the mountainside, you'll feel the geothermal heat radiating from beneath the surface. Wear boots for the journey, as you might have to trek through deep mud on the way up. Put Sierra Negra on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Puerto Villamil trip generator.
