Floreana has one of the most unique human histories of all the Galapagos Islands. And it has the smallest population of the populated islands.

For me, the feeling of being on a small island with a handful of other people was exceptional. Standing on Playa Negra (Black Beach) with no cell signal, no internet or telephone was one of the most peaceful moments I can remember. If you want to get away from it all – then Floreana is for you.

Have you heard some of Floreana’s mysterious history?

The town is Puerto Velasco Ibarro (west coast) where you will land. The majority of excursions will take you to the mountain in the center of the island.
