The story of volcanoes is the story of planet Earth’s creation—and the story of us.

Follow intrepid explorer Carsten Peter on an adrenaline-filled trip across the globe, from Hawaii’s recent Kilauea eruption to the archaeological ghost town of Pompeii, to discover how volcanoes have created extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife habitats. Dodge boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia, descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu, and visit the incredible mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia to explore molten worlds and find out how volcanoes have helped to create the world we know.

Capacity is limited to maintain health and safety.
