Kilauea volcano, Hawai'i: lava flows (Nov 06 - April 07)
Kilauea volcano has been very active recently. Spectacular lava flows were often present in the coastal area and one or several sea entries were active. Taken on some tours during the past months, we present you a small selection of our photos of lava flows at Kilauea, taken by our guide Philip.

Volcanic crisis at Sakurajima - updates: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
