Have you ever wanted to walk on an active volcano? White Island might be the place for you! If you don’t mind going to New Zealand 😉
A few weeks ago, my New Years Eve plans were messed up by the extreme cold in Canada. I was stuck in my Airbnb and couldn’t get to my location. Every year I try to do something different on the last day of the year.
Luckily the year before was still fresh in my head, because I WALKED ON AN ACTIVE VOLCANO.
I spent the day on the volcano, in the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand. First I took the boat with White Island Tours out there, seeing lots of dolphins, and then I walked in the inner crater of White Island – while the steam was getting out!
I also tasted the volcano… don’t ask me why 🙂
Here’s the White Island video!
As you can see, it was a beautiful day out. For more information on the trip, read my detailed volcano blogpost HERE.
