Isabela Island

Active Itinerary

Swimming/Snorkeling/Trekking/Biking

PNG Trekking invites you to join us to explore the famous Galapagos Islands. We have chosen Isabela Island as our base for lots of fun activity and some exciting exploring adventures. It is prolific with wildlife and the active itinerary we take you on allows you to get up close and personal with the extraordinary birds and animals that live on the Island and surrounding waters.

This island was named in honor of Queen Isabela. With an area of 4,640 square kilometers (1,792 sq mi), it is the largest island of the Galápagos. Its highest point is Volcán Wolf, with an altitude of 1,707 meters. The island's seahorse shape is the product of the merging of six large volcanoes into a single land mass. On this island, Galápagos penguins, flightless cormorants, marine iguanas, pelicans and Sally Lightfoot crabs abound. At the skirts and calderas of the volcanoes of Isabela, land iguanas and Galápagos tortoises can be observed, as well as Darwin finches, Galápagos hawks, Galápagos doves and very interesting lowland vegetation. The third-largest human settlement of the archipelago, Puerto Villamil, is located at the southeastern tip of the island. It is the only island to have the equator run across it and it is also the only place in the world where a penguin can be in its natural habitat in the Northern Hemisphere.
