Galapagos Islands Fernandina (Narborough)
An active volcanic island with frequent eruptions. Its steep flanks, streaked with successive lava flows, are arid; marine iguanas gather in their thousands. There’s an interesting shore-line trail.
This is the most active volcanic island with eruptions every few years. Its steep flanks, streaked with successive lava flows, are mostly arid. Marine iguanas gather in their thousands at Punta Española. The only visitor site is at Punta Espinoza, a narrow ledge of lava and sand that extends from the base of the volcano to the sea and is teeming with wildlife. There’s a trail to walk along the shore and snorkelling is great here.
