This tour gives you the chance to see some of Indonesia's most active, but rarely visited volcanoes from close: In particular, Ibu and Dukono volcanoes have been in constant, often spectacular activity for years. A visit of frequently active Lokon volcano near Manado rounds out the tour.
If you are into volcano photography or filming, and don't mind the physical challenge (up to 5-6 hrs on steep trail to reach Ibu), this tour is an adventure you will never forget! On Ibu and Dukono, we camp multiple nights in order to maximize observation time and chances to see spectacular eruptions in good weather.
Furthermore, this part of Indonesia is among the least crowded and least visited. The people of Halmahera are very friendly and welcoming to foreigners. As always on our small group tours in Indonesia, it is an occasion to fully immerse into the colorful local culture. ...more info

The legendary Molucca Sea, known for its precious spices that attracted early traders from Europe, is not only one of Indonesia's most interesting and beautiful areas. It also has the largest density of active volcanoes of any region in Indonesia, thanks to a very complex and unique tectonic setting.
Two active subduction zones to the west and east have consumed a small oceanic microplate, the Molucca Sea plate, producing two active volcanic arcs in North Sulawesi and in Halmahera. On this tour we visit no less than 5 of the most active volcanoes in the world, two of which - Dukono and Ibu - have been in near permanent activity for years while the others, Lokon, Soputan and Karangetang erupt frequently.
Each of the volcanoes is completely different in character and provides a great adventure to explore. The tour for a small group is an immersion into colorful cultures and an intense meeting with its very friendly people. Last but not least, the delicious, spicy cuisine of the region will enchant you. ...more info

NEW expeditions planned for 2019: 14-17 Aug 2019 - 2 nights on Krakatau!
This is your chance to get to know one of the most famous volcanoes with an expert and witness the dramatic changes from the Dec 2018 collapse.

During this physically easy expedition, you have the unique opportunity to experience one of the world's most beautiful and powerful volcanoes. The exact itinerary varies from tour date to tour date, but we usually spend between 2 and 4 full days and nights on and around the volcanic islands of Krakatau. Depending on the intensity of Anak Krakatau's activity we either camp on the beach of the active volcano itself or make our camp on one of the surrounding islands. Watching Krakatau's fireworks when it is active is truly spectacular and we will do so from various viewpoints both on Anak Krakatau itself and the neighboring islands, using the chartered boat we have at our disposal.

Even when there is no eruption, the active volcano of Anak Krakatau with its lunar landscapes, fumaroles and frozen lava flows, and the surrounding islands' spectacular pumice cliffs on what remains of the island complex destroyed in 1883, is well worth exploring. Your expedition leader and tour guide Andi has been closely watching this volcano's activity and changes over the past 15 years and will happily share his geological knowledge with you!

Hot springs and beautiful coral reefs and other natural highlights of this unique bioreserve make this a perfect trip if you like a volcano extension out from Jakarta. The tasty camping food with fresh fish and overall excellent organization by our experienced local crew round up this trip into an unforgettable travel adventure. ...more info
