Travel Alert

Jan 16, 2020

On 15 January 2020, the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued updated travel advice for Ecuador, which reads in part as follows: “The Cumbre volcano on Fernandina island in the Galapagos archipelago began erupting on 12 January 2020. The volcanic activity is being closely monitored. Reports show lava flow in the eastern part of the island and gas emissions are moving towards the west and north-western part. No impact on tourists is expected given that the volcano is located on an uninhabited island. However, this assesment may change according to weather and other conditions. If the conditions change, the local authorities may restrict tour boats and implement other safety measures.”
