  • This car route follows the story of the recentelijkste volcanic eruptions. A trail of extinct craters, lava fields everywhere, as far you can see. Regularly stop and explore the area is the message, the point of science and enjoy dozens of pictures. Even more beautiful is it when you start to descend by the youngest lava fields which a devastating kilometers wide rail pulling through the landscape to the sea. Desolate, black but oh so fascinating. Don't miss this route. Once arrived to the Board the sea stops the road at a guarded barricade, because further by (4.5 Miles) there is still flowing lava which spits in the ocean. On the way back up you will get a new image on this unrivalled landscape.
