At the moment (Jan 2016), Colima is again in a particularly active state. A new intense phase of explosions, often with spectacular eruption lightning has started and could be a precursor to a new phase of lava dome growth.
We therefore offer a new "Volcano Special" from 15-19 February 2016, with the best moonlight conditions for photography!

This expedition invites you to join us to observe the volcano during 4 full days from various viewpoints day and night, in a comfortable setting - we will be staying the whole time in the lush forested area at the slopes of the volcano only about 7 km from the summit with stunning views already from our accommodation.
Insights into geologic and volcanological processes, explanations of outcrops and volcanic land forms, but also tips for volcano photography are provided by the accompanying volcanologist (Tom Pfeiffer).
  • spectacular eruptions of Colima volcano
  • geologist / volcanologist guide
  • amazing photo opportunities
  • options for scenic charter flights around the volcano
  • adventure
