Volcano Tours

Watching the eruptions at Yasur volcano, Vanuatu
Witnessing a volcanic eruption is one of the most awe-inspiring displays in nature.

On certain tours, we try to see lava and ash from close and safe distance. On Hawai'i, we can sometimes approach and even touch red lava!

These tours offer great chances to see volcanic activity from up-close:
