Day 1 Isabela Island

  • 1 Lunch
This day tour begins at 7:00 AM from Hotel Silberstein.

Isabela is a beautiful island with a great diversity of wildlife. Upon arriving to the main dock of Puerto Villamil we will board a bus that takes us to the “Planchonales” - fresh lava formations with unique animal and plant life. Then we continue to Orchillas Hill, the great viewpoint in the highlands of Isabela where you can take the perfect panoramic pictures of the south of the island, Villamil town, and the Pacific Ocean. Throughout this tour, you will have the chance to see different species of Darwin finches.

Next, visit the white sand beach of Isabela to observe marine iguanas, blue footed boobies, and different kinds of marine birds. Snorkeling at the Concha Perla Bay, a beautiful and secluded natural pool between mangroves and lava formation where you can see turtles, rays, and different species of fish. We will walk twenty minutes through mangroves to the town of Villamil. The colours of the water, the mangroves, and lava formations are amazing along the way!

After lunch, we will continue with a visit to the wetlands, as well as the Breeding Center of Giant Tortoises and cultural center of the Galapagos National Park. Return to Puerto Ayora around 5:00 PM.
