Sierra Negra Volcano Tours

There’s nothing quite like the view from one of South America’s most active volcanoes and the world’s second largest crater, Sierra Negra.

The last eruption from this large shield volcano occurred in 2005—and while it’s not likely lava will be flowing, there are several geological and thermal events to see. Visitors can hike the six-mile-wide rim of the caldera, walking through otherworldly lava landscape. The southern side of the volcano is often covered in mist and fog and is lush with green vegetation as a result. Walking along the northern side allows for views of the lava rock from the most recent eruption.

Hiking Sierra Negra is strenuous, but those who make it to the top are rewarded with sweeping views of the landscape below.

Practical Info

Sierra Negra Volcano is located on the southern end of Isabela Island in the Galapagos, 13 miles from Puerto Villamil. It can only be visited with a certified guide.
