The Red Volcanoes “Face to Face with the Mountains of Fire”
An astonishing glimpse into the heart of volcanoes!
The most active volcano on earth is Kilauea in Hawaii, seen by 3 million people every year. Along with its counterpart Piton de La Fournaise, on the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, it is characterized by extraordinary lava flows that travel great distances through a spectacular landscape.
