This tour gives you the chance to see some of Indonesia's most active, but rarely visited volcanoes from close: In particular, Ibu and Dukono volcanoes have been in constant, often spectacular activity for years. A visit of frequently active Lokon volcano near Manado rounds out the tour.
If you are into volcano photography or filming, and don't mind the physical challenge (up to 5-6 hrs on steep trail to reach Ibu), this tour is an adventure you will never forget! On Ibu and Dukono, we camp multiple nights in order to maximize observation time and chances to see spectacular eruptions in good weather.
Furthermore, this part of Indonesia is among the least crowded and least visited. The people of Halmahera are very friendly and welcoming to foreigners. As always on our small group tours in Indonesia, it is an occasion to fully immerse into the colorful local culture. ...more info

Custom and group dates

Sinabung volcano on Sumatra has been in eruption since late 2013 and been regularly producing spectacular pyroclastic flows, as viscous lava continues to accumulate as a lava dome and regularly collapses.
Sinabung's eruption is also a text-book example of an erupting subduction zone volcano causing an ongoing crisis, which local people and authorities have learned to live with on a daily basis.
There is no fixed itinerary - we will move around the volcano as a function of weather, activity, the group's main interests and other factors. This tour is mainly intended for those eager to watch, learn about, photograph or film an active volcano, the processes behind, its monitoring and its impacts on human and nature. ...more info

After a pause of almost 3 years, lava flows are again flowing into the sea and accessible in the coastal area of the Hawai'i National Park. Additionally, there are two spectacular lava lakes active.
This is a unique opportunity to witness volcanic activity from close!

The primary purpose of this expedition is to enable a small group to spend several days on and near the active volcano of Kilauea, Hawaii, to observe volcanic activity and study volcanic/ geologic features: active lava lakes and lava flows. We will spend several full days to approach the active areas repeatedly by land, sea and from the air, depending on circumstances.
The best times will usually be in the afternoons/evenings, at night and early mornings (best light for photography), while we have the mid-days to relax, perhaps go for a swim etc. Options to get close to lava include on foot (longer hikes required), by sea (if lava enters the ocean, we can charter a boat conditions allowing) and by air (helicopter flights).
This Volcano Special tour is aimed at people who are looking to photograph or film, learn about or simply enjoy witnessing a spectacular volcanic eruption from close. ...more info

Krakatau started erupting again on 19 Feb 2017. This is your chance to see one of the world's most famous volcanoes in activity!

During this physically EASY expedition, you have the unique chance to experience one of the world's most beautiful and powerful volcanoes. Depending on which date, we spend 2-4 full days and nights on and around Krakatau volcano and stay in in a beautiful camp on one of the islands.
Watching Krakatau's fireworks when it is active is truly spectacular and we can go to various viewpoints on Anak Krakatau and neighboring islands as well from a chartered boat at our disposal.
Even when there is no eruption, the crater of Krakatau and its lunar surroundings, its fumaroles, the frozen lava flows, spectacular pumice cliffs of what remains of the island complex destroyed in 1883, hot springs, coral reefs and many other highlights make this a perfect trip if you like a volcano extension out from Jakarta.
