The Vakak volcanic group is located on an intraplate hot spot, which is antipodal to the Easter Island hot spot. It has been suggested that such hot spot pairs have formed in the history of the earth by oceanic large-body impacts, triggering flood basalt eruptions at the impact site and (minor) hot spot activity at the opposite (antipodal) location on the earth's sphere.

Ethiopia and the Danakil
: Ethiopia is a very diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to our numerous expeditions to Erta Ale and Dallol
and beyond, we have an extensive collection of images showing the volcano's lava lake, the desert, the colorful hot springs of Dallol, the vast salt lakes, camel caravans and more.
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.
Ubinas activity updates
: The most frequently active volcano in Peru entered a new eruptive phase in 2014. Updates and news are regularly posted on this page.
