The Volcano - A unique experience

The Volcano - A unique experience

During volcanic eruptions, ropy (liquid) lava flows allowing the formation of lava tunnels. After the lava flows have cooled down, tunnels become accessible providing a stunning backdrop (stalactites, stalagmites, glazed walls, large chambers). Enjoy a unique experience under the Piton de la Fournaise.

A journey of two kilometres between the top and bottom of the 2004 lava flow tunnel grid allows you to discover galleries of all sizes, chambers, frozen lava cascades, shafts of light (the Cathedral) and numerous concretions.
