Hike Sierra Negra and Darwin Crater on Isabela Island, Galapagos

Six volcanic domes stretch across Isabela Island. They appear as mystical summits from on high, suggesting how this island is still to fully evolve. Isabela is the youngest and largest Galapagos island and these six volcanoes continue to erupt regularly. 

Fields of lava stretch across the landscape and you walk upon them, on a hike to Sierra Negra and Darwin Crater. A local guide leads the way and you settle into the finest hike anywhere on the islands. 

Sierra Negra is a harder hike, to be expected given it’s the world’s largest volcanic caldera. Darwin Crater is easier, although a travel designer can also arrange for you to reach Sierra Negra by horseback.
