More on VolcanoDiscovery:
: Witnessing a volcanic eruption from close is an unforgettable experience. We offer a wide variety of tours and expeditions to active volcanoes worldwide.
Raung volcano photos
: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
Tours to active volcanoes
: Watching a volcanic eruption is one of the most impressive natural displays. We have a wide selection of tours to active volcanoes worldwide at different activity and difficulty levels.
Exploring the unknown
: We sometimes invite you to "test" new itineraries or destinations with us. Such trips are a reduced cost and require a higher degree of flexibility, but often offer a great deal of adventure.
