Young Island is the northernmost and second largest of the Balleny Islands off the coast of Antarctica's Victoria Land. Captain Balleny, the discoverer of the islands, reported "smoke" issuing from Freeman Peak on Young Island on February 12, 1839. The initial report of a 12,000 foot volcano on Young Island proved incorrect--the island has a broad plateau-like summit reaching 1340 m. The island is almost completely mantled by ice.

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.
Videos taken during our volcano expeditions and tours, showing eruptions, volcanic phenomena and more.
Live webcams of Bardarbunga volcano
