More on VolcanoDiscovery:
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.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
Gorely volcano photos
: Gorely is a young and very active shield volcano in southern Kamchatka. It is one of Kamchatka's easiest volcanoes to climb and offers stunning views into vast craters and the surrounding landscape.
From Stromboli to Etna tour
: A small group tour with a volcanologist to discover the active volcanoes in Sicily: spend 8 fantastic days in some of the most beautiful and interesting volcanic areas in the world. Watch Etna and Stromboli erupt... Last but not least, very nice accommodation and delicious food wait for you!
