More on VolcanoDiscovery:
Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
Volcano Special expedition
: Special tour to see the ongoing eruption of Shivleuch volcano. Max 6 participants, 5 nights on location, accompanied by our team and local volcanologists. Sign up deadline Sun 24 Feb 2019!
Land of Theseus
: A relaxed walking and study tour to one of Greece's hidden treasures and also one of the least known volcanically active areas in Europe.
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.
