  • There were a number of stopping points on the drive and it was different place to anything else that changes as you drive and knowing you are so close to an active volcano. Go to the Jagger Museum and...  more »
  • The drive round the rim has a number of places where you can stop and look at the view. the are often pools of steam and smoke venting from holes in the ground. A very interesting place. 
  • We had a free afternoon but not enough. When we went there was a great fog and visibility was poor, but it was still informative and interesting, we saw lava flows of different historical moments, the Museum did very well, calderas, unfortunately some parts of the trail were closed because of lava. We didn't have time to get down to the sea, but the Council to take all the time you need to make the entire journey is well worth it.
