Explore Galapagos’ Isabela Island and marvel at the beautiful landscapes and quirky residents

As the youngest member of the Galapagos Islands, Isabela boasts a vast range of plant life, wildlife and landscapes that differ dramatically from the surrounding isles in the archipelago. Marvel at the sight and feeding habits of the rare marine iguanas, prehistoric-looking creatures that are not found anywhere else in the world, and delight in the antics of giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies, Galapagos penguins, cormorants, doves, finches, hawks and the fascinating Sally Lightfoot crabs - it’s like a meet ‘n’ greet for some of the planets most unique creatures. Volcano-scarred landscapes provide the backdrop for this adventure as you retrace the footsteps of Charles Darwin on this four-day journey through an island that boasts the best that the Galapagos has to offer.

  • Swim with cheeky sea lions off the coast Visit Sierra Negra, the second largest volcano in the world Learn about the Galapagos’ rare and unique flora and fauna Study the history of the Wall of Tears and the Galapagos’ dark past Encounter some of the creatures that helped form Darwin’s theory of evolution Snorkel under a blanket of multi-coloured tropical fish and marine life

Isabela Island Extension Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Santa Cruz/Isabela Island

Isla Santa Cruz is home to the Charles Darwin Research Station The station's visitor centre and museum are essential stops for anyone interested in the archipelago's natural and human history, and keen to learn more about conservation efforts to preserve the unique ecosystems of the Galapagos. It also offers visitors their best chance for close-up encounters with giant tortoises. The largest island in the archipelago, Isla Isabela was formed by five giant volcanic craters, all of which are still considered active.

Days 2-3 Isabela Island

Isla Isabela offers a diverse range of sights to explore - from the massive crater of the Sierra Negra Volcano to the underwater wonders of Concha Perla.

Day 4 Isabela Island/Santa Cruz

Once used as a penal colony, the prisoners on Isla Isabela built a wall with enormous blocks of lava which is known as the 'Muro de las Lagrimas' (Wall of Tears).
