Raung volcano photos
: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
: 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.
