Admire lava flows entering the ocean and then be safely guided to where you will be within 1 or 2 meters of active flowing lava. This is an amazing opportunity not to be missed.

If I could give 0 stars here, I would. This experience was supposed to be the highlight of our trip, and it was probably the worst experience I had. Fabienne seriously needs to reconsider her level of professionality. First off, she brought her Australian boyfriend...More

Fabienne and Christopher made this experience truly one to remember. The hike was tailored to suit our young girls aged 7 and 10 - which brought us to within a metre of flowing lava. The sounds and heat of the lava was something so visceral,...More

Fabienne really knows the volcanos and is passionate about them. We truly loved the tour and would venture out with her again if we go back. She makes an effort to bring her groups far away from other hiking groups. This is appreciated more after...More

We had a great hike with our guide Fabianne to view lava flows up close. Fabianne (photo below) kept us safe while getting us right into the heat coming of the red hot lava. I will never forget this experience.
