Green Volcanoes: The Azores, a cluster of volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean, are famous for their very pleasant climate, breathtaking green and unspoiled landscapes and nature. They also have deep history and you'll find warm hospitality. Our new tour, guided by a photographer and volcanologist, will lead to five islands: Sao Miguel, Faial, Terceira, Pico and Flores - each with its distinct character to discover.
Land of Colors: We still have spots free on the tours to Kamchata's volcanoes in Aug & Sep 2020! Both tours will be accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. A country full of colors and adventures is waiting for you!
