Ijen volcano photos
: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
Kuril Islands expedition
: The Kuril islands form one of the most active volcanic chains in the world, but are very difficult to access. From time to time, we organize expeditions to some of these remote and still unspoiled islands. Adventure guaranteed!
