Reventador Volcano Special

5 days expedition to Ecuador to observe volcanic activity from close

Vulcanian eruption of Reventador volcano in Jan 2020
Vulcanian eruption of Reventador volcano in Jan 2020
Reventador in northern Ecuador is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and one of the few in the world with currently persistent activity.
Its eruptions typically consist of intermittent small to moderate explosions of vulcanian type, which can be extremely spectacular (lots of incandescent lava bombs, sometimes volcanic lightning etc). This expedition is aimed towards volcano fans wishing to spend extended observation time (mostly at night) in order to witness and document this activity from close.
We will stay almost a week near the volcano in a very comfortable lodge with an excellent viewpoint (approx. 10 km distance) already only 5 minutes away. Those who are in for more adventure and even closer views have the option to approach the volcano to within 3-4 km at a basic camp inside the caldera, which requires a strenuous 5-6 hour hike through the rain forest.
  • Active Reventador volcano
  • Chances of spectacular vulcanian eruptions
  • Lush rain forest
  • San Rafael waterfall
  • Accompanying volcanologist
