More Info

Located off of mainland Ecuador roughly 1,000 kilometers into the Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos National Park comprises 97% of the entirety of the islands. The remaining land area is reserved for inhabitants.

The hiking trails tend to be short, though their duration can seem grueling when done in the heat of the day. It is recommended to visit during the warm and wet season, though rainstorms can disrupt itineraries. The islands have a few different mountains, including Alcedo Volcano and Sierra Negra, which provide more challenging objectives for dedicated trekkers.

Bringing sun protection is vital when planning a hiking trip here. Combining a hike with snorkeling and other water activities allows you to admire all of the wildlife the islands have to offer.
