: The contrast between unspoiled rain-forest, coconut palm beaches, primitive culture and moon-like landscapes surrounding lava-spitting volcanoes could not be bigger: join us on an expedition to the two most active volcanoes of Vanuatu: Ambrym and Yasur.
: The Azores, a cluster of volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean, are famous for their very pleasant climate, breathtaking green and unspoiled landscapes and nature. They also have deep history and you'll find warm hospitality. Our new tour, guided by a photographer and volcanologist, will lead to five islands: Sao Miguel, Faial, Terceira, Pico and Flores - each with its distinct character to discover.
