If the eruption of Shiveluch continues, we plan an expedition for max 6 participants to observe it during 16-24 Mar 2019. Deadline to sign up is Sat, 24 Feb 2019.
The group will be accompanied by part of our team and is organized in cooperation with the local volcano observatory.
Note: There will be little to no physical difficulty, but you will need to be prepared for severe WINTER conditions (temperatures down to -20 deg C) - you will need proper winter clothing for arctic conditions.
