Sierra Negra Volcano half-day Tour from Isabela | Galapagos with ChokoTrip

I CAN HELP YOU BOOK the tour to the Sierra Negra Volcano on for $60. One of the top short-trail routes through active volcanoes in all of Latin America.

The tour starts early in the morning; a bus or car will pick you up and take you to the trailhead which is 30 minutes from Puerto Villamil and continues along the path that leads to the Sierra Negra volcano.




The walk lasts about 4 hours and most of the trail is flat, with a few ups and downs. Although you’re given lunch, it’s necessary to take at least one liter of water because the sun is really strong and you’ll definitely need it on your return.

There are five stops along the trail: at the beginning, there are two which have a panoramic view of the volcano’s crater, then there’s one more at the small volcano and two more stops after that to refresh and eat lunch.

When you enter the small volcano inside the crater of the Sierra Negra Volcano, you’ll notice that it’s still active and a lot of the holes feel warm when you put your hand over them. At the end of the walk, you’ll see one of the most fascinating viewpoints where you’ll surely think that you are on another planet.

NOTE: The itinerary of the tour may have to be altered depending on the state of the volcano; our priority is the safety of the tourists.

    This hiking tour was quite harsh. The guide was a little bit in a hurry, may be because of the fact that the fog did not permit a view over the huge crater while we mounted. We were lucky to have some sun on the return, The view of the huge crater was the whole trip worth. The visit of the little crater was very informative about ancient and recent lava formations, but quite exhausting too.

    This was a wonderful tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable about volcanoes and took the time to explain the sights along the way. Choko was extremely helpful recommending tours to us and helping with all of the arrangements. I will definitely be using Choko Trip for any future adventures in the Galapagos as Choko took the time to inform me of our options of tours available during our stay and made arrangements for each.

    Great hiking trip to an alien volcanic landscape. Excellent hike, even in miserable weather. (It was raining most of the time during our hike, but the last 30 minutes to the small crater made up for all the trouble.)
