Our expedition leader Andi visited Ijen crater during a period of elevated activity in May 2012, when lots of sulfur from the fumaroles was burning at night with blue and reddish flames, creating abstract photos.
The other photos are by our friends Jorge and Jessy who visited the volcano about 2 months later and give an impression of the volcano, known for its turquoise acid crater lake and the extensive sulfur mining.

Kuril Islands expedition The Kuril islands form one of the most active volcanic chains in the world, but are very difficult to access. From time to time, we organize expeditions to some of these remote and still unspoiled islands. Adventure guaranteed!
Mayon volcano photos Mayon on Luzon Island, towering above Legazpi city is famous for being one of the most perfectly symmetrical stratovolcanoes in the world. It is also one of the most active and most dangerous volcanoes (not only) in the Philippines.
Ibu volcano photos Ibu in Halmahera is one of the most active, but rarely visited volcanoes in Indonesia. A spectacular lava dome is growing inside the volcano's breached crater, with frequent explosions.
