Sulfur Volcano: A hiking challenge in the Galapagos

Recently I had the chance to explore again the incredible Sulfur Volcano at the Sierra Negra Volcano, in Isabela Island at the Galapagos. The approach to this active spot of the major Sierra Negra Caldera was as in my previous visits a "bit" muddy, but stil walkable. It took us about 3.5 hours to reach the Caldera rim and less than 2 hours to walk the almost 4.2 km in and out of the active spot.

We took some breaths (not intentionally) of sulfur gas, that had us coughing for many minutes, but it was worth the close view of the many vents that cover this area. An incredible view and experience for the ones that challenge the nature.

We will be happy to organize a great adventure or holiday for you. Visit us at:, specialized in-land tour operator from Ecuador, Peru and Southamerica.
