Would You Visit a Volcano?

Ask a Question

After the recent disaster, I wonder how many people would still visit a volcano?

I visited a couple in the past, but they were known to be extinct or dormant

It's likely that rules will be tightened after this tragedy. It may put people off in the short term, but overall most will still want to visit. There is an element or risk in just about everything we do. Like earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc people will eventually return to these areas.

Very true. I guess it’s like when the Jaws movie came out, no one would go near the waters for a while in case of a rogue shark attack

My mil is currently in New Zealand (she flew out after the eruption) and she phoned to tell us what she wanted at her funeral in case anything happened! She isn't going anywhere near the island and wouldn't be allowed now anyway!

Omg that’s perhaps a very morbid thought to be having on a holiday! Hope she returns safely

Same here, and tbh I’d like to know more about the last time it had erupted, etc. I think they’re fascinating but I’d be happy to see one that is not active

I agree, I would research the volcano and the tour operators first just to check.

I did visit a volcano in the Caribbean, it was safe apparently so didn’t come to any harm.

They had warning from the volcano there for months....it was tourism...some people made business out of it to show it to people, even they known it is dangerous. Would not visit an active one.....

Mount Teide was fun but people were taking rocks leading to it losing 1cm in height every year lol

I confess i took a sulphur rock myself!

Yeah after the disaster it might be worth getting some life insurance.
