Galapagos Hiking


Galapagos hiking

The Galapagos Islands is the pinnacle of the World for its fascinating biological diversity. Famous for its fauna which demonstrates no fear or timidity towards the presence or nearness of humans.

The Galapagos hiking is the only way to reach many beautiful places overland. Enthusiasts regard hiking as the best way to see nature. It is seen as better than a tour in a vehicle of any kind (or on an animal; see horseback riding) because the hiker's senses are not intruded upon by distractions such as windows, engine noise, airborne dust in large quantities, and fellow passengers. It has an advantage over standing in one place because the hiker may cover a wide area.

The hiking is a recreational experience. As such, hikers expect it to be pleasant. Sometimes hikers can interfere with each others' enjoyment, or the enjoyment of other users of the land.

There are some interesting hikes in the Galapagos: Sierra Negra Volcano, Volcan Alcedo, Santa Cruz highlands.

Each step on the Galapagos Islands is one of exploration that leaves behind the boundaries of your own world and leads you deeper into a new world; one of beauty, adventure and personal discovery, a combination of the wildlife, volcanoes and geology.

The walks go through paths that have been marked by the Galapagos National Park; a qualified naturalist tour guide will always accompany you.

Every rule from the National Park has to be strictly followed, and the guides will always advice you of these rules before and during every excursion. These rules are made to guarantee the protection of wildlife and to leave the least possible impact.

The guides can point out the fascinating details of the islands, turning a beautiful activity hike into an great experience.
