Our tours to volcanoes and volcanic regions:

We propose a wide variety of tours of varying levels of effort and interest ranging from active volcanism, geology, nature, acheology and culture.


1. Volcano Expedition Tours
Want to visit an active volcano and watch it erupt? You are just a few clicks away... start here to select your volcano adventure!

2. Walking and study tours
You don't have to be a volcano freak to travel with us! We specialize in volcanic areas, yes, but that's also because volcanic areas (southern Italy, for instance) form some of the most beautiful and interesting environments on the planet. Each tour is accompanied by an expert in the area who personally guides you and takes care of all the details. Have a look at our range of walking and study tours, ranging from adventurous to deluxe, with a general focus on geology, volcanism, nature and culture.

3. Photo Tours
Some of our tours are specially designed to maximize photo opportunities and meet the needs of photographers. No matter whether you do photography for hobby or for living, whether you shoot for leisure or come with professional interest, VolcanoDiscovery offers you a fine selection of exceptional photo tours to exceptional places guided by experienced photographers.

3. Private and custom tours
For individuals and groups, we can tailor custom-designed tours for your group or corporate incentive. Have a look at our existing tours and let us know your preferences.

4. Pilot tours
Exploring the unknown: we sometimes go and explore new destinations and invite a small number of people to come with us and try it out! Such trips are a reduced cost and require a higher degree of flexibility, but often offer a great deal of adventure.
