Fernandina (Narborough) Island

Fernandina is located at the west end of the archipelago. The colossal shield of Fernandina volcano reaches 1494 m and is still very active. The island has a surface area of 643 sqkm2 and it is the youngest and most pristine island in Galapagos, with no introduced species to date and recent lava flows formed by an active volcano are evident. Along the shoreline hundreds of marine iguanas form the largest colony found in Galapagos. Sea lions with resident bulls guard their territory. Flightless cormorants build their nests on the point. Galapagos hawks fly overhead. Snorkeling possible.


Its vegetation, typical of the arid zone, is concentrated in kipukas (small areas left untouched by recent lava). Also here you can find some representative plants such as the mangroves, brachycereus cactus and mollugo snodrassii.
