Stromboli volcano photos
: The lighthouse of the Thyrrhenian Sea - thanks to its typical, regular explosions that coined the term "strombolian activity", Stromboli is one of the most famous and photogenic volcanoes in the world.
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
: The Azores, a cluster of volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean, are famous for their very pleasant climate, breathtaking green and unspoiled landscapes and nature. They also have deep history and you'll find warm hospitality. Our new tour, guided by a photographer and volcanologist, will lead to five islands: Sao Miguel, Faial, Terceira, Pico and Flores - each with its distinct character to discover.
