Which volcano to choose - where to watch an eruption?
Visiting an active volcano
Over 1500 volcanoes in the world are considered active, but only some of them, 20-40, are erupting at any given time. There is a huge choice if you are want to exploring fascinating volcanic environments as such.
Visiting an erupting volcano
If you want to watch "real" live eruptions, the choice is much more limited and you might want expert help to choose a suitable location: It depends on the current situation, the time of the year (climate!), your preferences, your physical abilities and other factors.

What we recommend
As some of the most rewarding volcano destinations we recommend (especially if it's your first time) Italy and Indonesia. - For volcano-lovers, they are a real must: No doubt, these are nr. 1 when it comes to potential opportunities of viewing interesting eruptions from close, with only little or moderate physical effort involved and in relatively high safety. In addition, excellent overall comfort (accommodation, food, transport) is readily available.
Volcanolgist guides and volcano adventure travel
If you are not familiar with a volcano in question, it is recommended that you visit it with an experienced guide.
Our team can rely on a vast network of contacts with both the international scientific community and expert local logistic organizers. We offer exciting travel opportunities to the most rewarding volcano destinations. Check out our travel and tour section!
