Santa Cruz – Los Gemelos
Los Gemelos (The Twins) are a pair of large pit craters on the road from Puerto Ayora to Baltra. The craters were created when the surface material covering empty magma chambers collapsed. You can walk along the rim of the craters and enjoy breathtaking views. The trail around the larger crater passes through a Scalesia forest and is good place to see a variety of bird species including short-eared owls, Galápagos doves and vermillion flycatchers.
