One of our wanderlust wishlist experiences is to witness volcanic lava in its purest form.
This is an experience we have traveled long and far to witness.
We have traveled to some of the most volcanic areas of the earth, including Hawaii, Iceland and most of Central America and have always left dissapointed. Hawaii’s big island had been witnessing a continuous eruption for months, we arrived exactly when it finished. Central America is littered with wild volcanos… but not a glimmer… Typical!
We recently visited the Volcanic island of Santorini in the Greek Isles. There was very little chance that this volcano was to meet our desires however I was lucky enough to experience something a little different.
Walking volcanic tubes is quite a thrill and very easy to do in places like Hawaii, however diving them is a completely different ballgame. We had never even thought about it, why would you? Well given the chance in Santorini, it was a dive well worth the effort. The tubes were incredible and being out of your natural element underwater simply added a sense of marvel I had not previously witnessed.
What a breathtaking experience, we never knew even existed… highly recommended.
