After about a week of weak activity, Redoubt exploded again on April 4th. Our team member Marco Fulle is on location and reports heavy thunderstorms from below the 15 km tall ash plume. More details and photos will be available soon.
Merapi volcano photos: One of the most active and most dangerous volcanoes of Indonesia: Merapi meaning "the one who makes fire", is a feared but also venerated holy mountain looming over the city of Yogyakarta, capital of Central Java.
From Krakatau to Bali: Visit Java's famous volcanoes: Krakatau, Merapi, Bromo, Semeru, Ijen and others, crossing Java from west to east. This study and photography trip for a small exclusive group is one of our classic and best tours.
Volcano Special Tours: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
