Volcano Calendar 2019: We're proud to present our 2019 volcano calendar: 13 different and attractive images of volcanoes, volcanic landscapes and phenomena taken during volcano tours over the past few years.
The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
Nila stratovolcano forms a small 5x6 km island in the Banda Sea, Indonesia. It has a low caldera breached at sea level on the south and east. In its center, Laworkawra, a 781 m high vegeted cone, forms the most recent volcanic edifice. Fumaroles are located on the SE flank of the cone. Historic activity were summit and flank fissure eruptions. An eruption in 1932 from a fissure that extended from the summit to the SE coast produced heavy ashfall and forced the abandonment of Rumadai village.
Nila is cut by a deep erosion gully on the SW side. Submarine vents are found north and west of Nila Island, where gas bubbles are seen escaping at depths of 20-30 m.
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.
