Great Volcano Vacations
Last Eruption: Continuing
Why It’s Cool: The volcano’s smoldering, perfectly shaped cone can be seen from just about everywhere, and it’s especially dramatic on a nighttime boat tour. Getting up close requires a three-hour steep climb through vastly different landscapes. Just don’t be surprised by rumblings and explosive sounds as you near the red glowing crater that spews hot ash, gases, and molten rocks.
Hot Tour Company: Magma Trek (011-090/986-5768) runs guided private and group hikes up the volcano starting three hours before sunset.
