Volcano Calendar 2018: We're proud to present our 2018 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.
Quimsachata (Kimsachata) is the northernmost active volcano in Peru and located at the foot of the Cordillera Oriental in an isolated area far east of the main volcanic front.
It sonsists a group of 2 vents: Quimsachata, an older andesitic cinder cone surrounded by a lava shield, which erupted ca. 11,500 years ago, and a younger rhyolitic lava dome, Oroscocha, that erupted ca. 6400 years ago and produced a short, thick lava flow. (USGS / GVP)
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.
