Prices From:
US$ 1,884

Experience the Galapagos Islands your way with this stay on Isabela Island. Relax on the white sand beaches of Puerto Villamil when you’re not spotting giant tortoises at the National Park or hiking up to the massive crater of Sierra Negro Volcano.


This 4-day trip is a unique way to experience the Galapagos Islands. It sends you on day trips to explore the Galapagos National Park & Marine Reserve while also allowing you to explore Isabela Island at your own leisure.

This Galapagos tour allows you to explore these biodiverse islands from the comfort of a lodge on Isabela Island. Visit Puerto Villamil, a fishing village on the southern edge of Isabela, to see the largest urban centre on the island and get a taste for what life is like for the inhabitants of this island chain. Then head to the National Park to see a giant tortoise breeding centre and explore wetland lagoons. The highlight of your Galapagos tour will be a hike up the Sierra Negro Volcano, with its crater that’s 11-kilometres in diameter. Hike from “El Cura” up the slopes of the volcano to gaze upon its volcanic caldera and marvel at one of the largest volcanic formations on the planet. You’ll also have the opportunity to see penguins, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, and Darwin finches during your exploration of Isabela Island.
