Expedition to the Centre of the Earth. When strolling through a volcano we can feel all the power and magnetism of nature under our feet. An energy that comes up from the very depths of the earth and calls to us to become explorers. To the crater and beyond!
Crater, Magma and Lava
Vulcan is the Roman god of fire from whom the name for these enormous mountains derives. Volcanoes are full of rocks in molten form inside the earth and oh, but ever so exceedingly hot. That’s what we call magma. From time to time the magma rises and spurts out of the crater at the very top. And then… BOOM!
Everything bursts forth in the form of lava, gases and ash
But don’t worry, volcanoes spend more time sleeping than awake and they often let us feel their magic. A magnetic sensation.
The Montaña Colorada
That’s the name of this part of Fuerteventura which has as many as 9 volcanoes lined up. Thanks to their activity, the island grew in size forming lava fields a great many years ago. Although, in reality, these volcanoes are quite young, they’re only… 50,000 years old!
You must be well equipped to roam them with whatever nature gives us on the way, so grab some good walking sticks and… Let the expedition roll!
