Strong southwesterly winds push almost all bombs to the eastern side of the New SE crater. After this picture (taken around midnight), the summit gradually becomes hidden in a massive cloud cover, as a snowstorm approaches that lasts until the next afternoon, while Etna increases her activity until the next morning, producing huge fountains and several large lava flows.

Ijen volcano photos: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
Volcano Special Tours: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
