Want more Galapagos? Extend your stay by adding this 4-day adventure. See a different side of the Galapagos from your base on the archipelago's largest island, Isabela. Hike to a giant volcanic crater, visit a tortoise breeding centre and shark resting ground—and stop at the site of the island's former penal colony. Along the way spot flamingos, penguins, sea lions and marine iguanas. Snorkel Isabela's palm-lined beaches.
You are met at the Baltra airport (Please note: If you are arriving by flight on Day 1 of the tour, the latest arrival flight time into Baltra is 10:00am) and travel by speedboat to Isabela (approx 3.5 hrs), arriving at the hotel for a short rest. Later, visit the Flamingo Lagoon, the largest coastal lagoon in the Galapagos and a principal breeding ground for the flamingos.
Visit the Sierra Negra Volcano, located 13 miles from Puerto Villamil. Hike up to this magnificent site and walk around the largest volcanic crater in the world. Walk on the lava fields of the volcano Chico. Return to the hotel before snorkeling in Concha Perla.
Visit the Giant Tortoise Breeding Centre and the 'Wall of Tears'. In the afternoon, sail to 'Islote Tintoreras', a large crevice with very clear, calm water in which whitetip sharks (tintoreras) rest daily on the bottom.
