Solar Eclipse & volcano tour
: A total solar eclipse will occur on 14 Dec 2020 and pass over southern Chile and Argentina. Chile's most active volcano Villarrica is located exactly on the center line where the eclipse will be best to observe.
We offer you the unique chance to combine the eclipse with a tour to one the world's most beautiful volcanic areas - the Lake District in Chile.
: 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.
Pearl of the Aegean
: Santorini is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Discover its fascinating natural and cultural history on a relaxed walking study tour with us.
Land of Colors
: We still have spots free on the tours to Kamchata's volcanoes in Aug & Sep 2020! Both tours will be accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. A country full of colors and adventures is waiting for you!
Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: Experience one of the geologically most active areas on the planet: the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. Highlights include Erta Ale volcano with its active lava lake and Dallol hydrothermal fields offering a surreal landscape of colors, salt, geysers and springs.

While it's still difficult to say whether travel restrictions for our worldwide destinations will be lifted in time the second half of 2020, we are optimistic about our European ones. In particular, Greece has largely avoided the spread of the virus and can now safely open up for tourism again: flights from abroad are again increasing. Starting from next week, restaurants will open again, most hotels will also be open from mid June, and entry to foreign travelers will be possible without mandatory quarantine from 1 July. read all
