Eruption and Volcano Specials: Tours to erupting volcanoes

Lava flow eruption (Stromboli, March 2007)
Lava flow eruption (Stromboli, March 2007)
We sometimes organize expeditions to active volcanoes or current eruptions outside our regular program on often short notice.
This gives you the best possible chance to witness a volcanic eruption with competent company and guidance, but you should be prepared to adventurous and improvised conditions and logistics. Due to the nature of such trips, we often cannot provide very detailed information on exact itinerary etc.
If you are up to a true volcano adventure, this is for you!

Generally, participants need to be quick to pack their backpacks, and arrange their arrival to the destination themselves (although we can assist you with finding your flight).
The program for these tours is very simple and almost entirely a function of the conditions on location and what is possible and safe: to spend several days in the area, visiting and searching for the best viewpoints to observe the eruption and its effects. We provide accommodation, transfers and the local know-how to find the best spots - and stay safe.
You find below a list of currently available Eruption Special tours - please note that this list is often updated, so come and visit this page regularly. If you like to be informed whenever we announce such a short-notice special trip, please let us know via email.

NEW expedition 17-21 Nov 2019 - 2 nights on Krakatau!
This is your chance to get to know one of the most famous volcanoes with an expert and witness the dramatic changes from the Dec 2018 collapse.

During this physically easy expedition, you have the unique opportunity to experience one of the world's most beautiful and powerful volcanoes. The exact itinerary varies from tour date to tour date, but we usually spend between 2 and 4 full days and nights on and around the volcanic islands of Krakatau. Depending on the intensity of Anak Krakatau's activity we either camp on the beach of the active volcano itself or make our camp on one of the surrounding islands. Watching Krakatau's fireworks when it is active is truly spectacular and we will do so from various viewpoints both on Anak Krakatau itself and the neighboring islands, using the chartered boat we have at our disposal.

Even when there is no eruption, the active volcano of Anak Krakatau with itslunar landscapes, fumaroles and frozen lava flows, and the surrounding islands' spectacular pumice cliffs on what remains of the island complex destroyed in 1883, is well worth exploring. Your expedition leader and tour guide Andi has been closely watching this volcano's activity and changes over the past 15 years and will happily share his geological knowledge with you!

Hot springs and beautiful coral reefs and other natural highlights of this unique bioreserve make this a perfect trip if you like a volcano extension out from Jakarta. The tasty camping food with fresh fish and overall excellent organization by our experienced local crew round up this trip into an unforgettable travel adventure. ...información de MS
