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.
