Fernandina Island (Narborough) Punta Espinoza Landing Video Clip Of Fernandina
Fernandina Island's large-shield volcano is the youngest and most western island in the Galapagos.
Shield volcanoes are formed from a build of fluid lava flows. As the flow emits from the central vent it pours out in
all directions creating a broad, gently sloping cone of flat, domical shape. The profile is said to resemble a warrior's shield
giving these volcanoes their name. Lots of pahoe-hoe (Hawaiian for Rope) and aa lava to walk on.
