Myanmar (Burma) is one of Asia's most mysterious and unknown countries that only recently opened its borders for tourism.
It also has a few active volcanoes related to the subduction of the Indo-Pacific under the Eurasian tectonic plate, most notably the Singu Plateau near the city of Mandalay and Mt. Popa volcano, a large stratovolcano in central Myanmar, which last erupted around 442 BC, leaving its traces in local legends.
We plan to organize a pilot tour to discover the volcanic history of this relatively unknown country when the political situation has stabilized. The tour will be organised and guided by a geologist from our team (Dr. Evelyne Pradal) who speaks French and English. ...more info

Kamchatka, with its dramatic landscapes, wild, unspoiled nature and many active volcanoes is a great adventure destination. Our pilot tour in Sep 2017 was a great success and we are proud to present an updated program for our next expedition from 2-20 Sep 2018 - volcano photography !
The tour is aimed towards people with an interest in volcanoes enjoying photography and adventure in a small group. It consists of 4 parts:
At the beginning, we plan to spend 3 full days at remote Karymsky volcano, which often has spectacular explosive eruptions of strombolian-vulcanian type. During this time, normally, one or several of the local volcanologists also join us and offer interesting insights into actual volcano monitoring, interesting lectures about Kamchatka's volcanoes and volcanic history, ongoing research and more.
The second part is is 2-3 days in the southern plateau and includes the relatively easy climbs to spectacular Gorely and Mutnowsky volcanoes. After this first week, we spend 8 days around the northern volcano group around Klyuchevskoy and Sheveluch, where very often at least one volcano is in eruption, typically even two or three... This is usually the most adventurous part that also depends strongest on actual conditions. It involves camping and/or simple huts, easy hikes, and hopefully prolonged observation / photography during day and night in the best viewpoints of the volcanoes.
The tour ends with a few extra days which not only add a safety margin (in case changes are needed on location, or if there is an unexpected eruption that merits going), but normally offer the chance to take part in the classic, but truly rewarding excursions to famous Valley of Geysers/Uzon caldera and the Kurile Lake (for bear observations), both available as day-trips by helicopter.

During the largest part of the tour, we will have our own cook who provides us with excellent and plentiful Russian and local cuisine. Volcanological explanations during wait times, tea or dinner etc and in the field round out the tour. ...more info
