There are few forces on earth that equal the power and destructive force of a volcano. Their impact has helped shape this planet, altered climates, and laid waste to entire civilizations.
That destructive power has terrified, awed and fascinated humans for centuries.

However for those who understand them, they are beautiful spectacles of the earth’s inner mechanism at work. Out of the approximately 550 active volcanoes on the planet, few are ever destructive. They remain content to put on a spectacle for all those near, or increasing numbers of adventurers who dare to venture to remote locations to watch one of natures most incredible shows.

Where there is a demand, there is opportunity, A small German based company Volcano Discovery is cashing in on what has become a new craze, and catering to the adventurous and volcano curious Volcanologist Thomas Pfeiffer, and his team of local experts, take guests on exciting journeys around the world to the most eruptive volcanoes.

From the notorious and deadly Krakatoa, to the remote and inhospitable heat of the Danakill Depression of Ethiopia, Volcanic Odysseys follows Thomas and his crew as they l take viewers into world of beauty and awe of this somewhat misunderstood spectacle.
