3 days walking with full porterage
A unique trek amid the volcanic Galapagos archipelago
Extended trekking on the island of Isabela in the remote Galapagos archipelago is a rare privilege and we are one of only a few operators allowed here. As part of this trip we enjoy a three day trek to the 10km wide crater rim of the Sierra Negra Volcano, a hike blessed with striking views of the lava-strewn landscape and its smouldering fumaroles. As well as five major volcanoes, Isabela is also one of the last remaining habitats of the Galapagos giant tortoise. Elsewhere in the Galapagos we undertake shorter walks to appreciate the geological features of these enchanting islands and discover their endemic wildlife.

Accommodation details
Hotels & Wild Camping
12 nights hotels and guesthouses in en suite rooms and 2 nights full-service wild camping in 2-person tents.
The hotels and guesthouses on the Galapagos Islands are generally small, family-run establishments with limited facilities, yet all have rooms with en suite bathrooms and hot water. Camping during the Sierra Negra trek is in wild campsites - horses transport all gear and the local staff will erect tents and perform all camp chores (although of course any help is welcome!) As this is wild camping, there are no purpose built facilities such as showers or toilet blocks. Water will be provided for hand washing/cleaning and there will be a basic toilet tent. Due to national park regulations, all litter and organic food waste will be removed from the park at the end of the trek.

Optional single supplement available (hotels and single tents) from GBP490

These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes

Interesting facts
Triglav summiting or how to tame Goldenhorn

Triglav is the Slovenia’s highest mountain, featuring three peaks with the highest one reaching 2864 meters. According to one of the legends, there was a magical Goldenhorn inhabiting the Triglav Mountains. The horns of the mysterious creature were made of gold and would make anyone who caught Goldenhorn forever rich. The Goldenhorn was never caught due to its artfulness in escaping from the chasers, even when injured. The magic power of Goldenhorn was hidden in a divine flower protecting him from deathly wounds. The flower was growing in the crevices of Triglav and boasted unfathomable beauty.
