Off the beaten track
10+ years of experience
You benefit from first-hand knowledge, scientific expertise and years of experience. While looking for adventure, we never forget your safety. Visit live volcanoes only with professionals.
We are no "volcano heros" and don't compete with others who call themselves "volcano adventurers", but our volcano tours are guided by real volcanologists, i.e. people with both hands-on field experience and academic background in geology or a related field, combined with years in training, teaching and research.
Small groups = better experience
We want to maximize the experience of each client, flexibility, the overall quality of each trip, and cause as little impact as an intruding group in the local environment as possible. Some activities loose their charm and value if the group is too large, and sometimes, the group must be that small in order to be able to do it well. On our photo tours, we normally operate with a maximum of 4 participants, so everyone has maximum attention from the tour leader and best chances to shoot at his own preferred photographic locations.
Personal serviceWe are a young, small and personal company. You communicate directly with us from from start to end and we care about all details.
Individual and private ToursWe can organize private and customized tours. If you are looking for a special event, an incentive, or private tour with us, we provide tailor-made service. Simply contact us.
Less is more = see the details
We focus on what we love most and do best, and keep our team small and personal. This is the way we like to work, and we believe that you benefit from it, too, because you'll be certain to be among people who really love their work.
The same applies for the programs we offer. We do not rush from sight to sight, nor are we interested in the athletic aspects of hiking or walking. Most of us are passionate about photography. If you like a relaxed pace, and want to have time to discover details you otherwise won't see - come travel with us.
Variety - geology, nature & culture
International mixed groups
Meeting different people of all ages and from different countries is one of the aspects we love most about our own work. If you are open to meet and travel with people having a totally different background, culture and language than yourself, you will probably enjoy our trips a lot more!
Participants often start as foreigners, but leave as friends.
We don't bring you to Burger places or touristy restaurants with cheap set menus. Nor do we bring you to stylish fancy star chef restaurants. What we prefer are typical small places, where locals people like to go out to eat, often far from the crowds.
People with special diets (vegetarian etc.) are also more than welcome, as there is always lots of variety, especially in places like Greece or Italy, where the traditional local cuisine is actually strongly based on vegetarian ingredients.
