HISTORIC VOLCANO FLIGHTS
• Mt. Rinjani Volcano Tour
– Lombok - Famed for its beauty and isolation,
Lombok’s Mt. Rinjani is Indonesia's second
highest volcano. At 3,726 meters, it towers
over Lombok, and boasts a ten-kilometer-wide
crater - a habitat with deep gorges, towering
walls, hot springs, waterfalls, and a
perfectly shaped volcanic cone. This strato-volcano’s
oval-shaped Segara Anak caldera also contains
a 230-m-deep lake. The earliest recorded eruption
at Rinjani dates back to 1847 when a moderate
explosion occurred. The most recent eruption
was in October 2004 when smoke and a lava flow

• Mt. Tambora Volcano Tour
– Sumbawa (includes Mt. Rinjani Volcano)
- Visit the volcano that was the location of
the largest eruption in recorded history! When
Mt. Tambora erupted in 1815, it caused a cataclysmic
disaster and the deaths of 90,000 people. This
event significantly altered the global climate
for years. Universal crop failure occurred,
temperatures dropped dramatically all over the
world, and living creatures died off in large
numbers. After being dormant for 5,000 years,
Mt. Tambour woke up and over a ten-day period,
unleashed its anger in an eruption that generated
a volcanic column 40km high. This blast was
heard over 1,000 kilometers away. The long-term
effects of Mt. Tambour’s eruption were
felt across the globe. In addition to the large
quantities of ash, rocks and dust ejected by
the volcano, over 200 million tons of sulfur
dioxide gas was propelled into the stratosphere.
This had the effect of limiting the amount of
sunlight that reached the ground, so that temperatures,
particularly across the Northern Hemisphere,
began to fall dramatically. India’s monsoon
season was interrupted, possibly leading to
a deadly outbreak of cholera that insinuated
its way across the globe. Europe experienced
widespread crop failures just as it was recovering
from the effects of the Napoleonic Wars. Ireland
had its first great famine fueling a mass migration
by the Irish to America. Devastating floods
hit China. In North America, 1816 is remembered
as "the year without a summer", when
snow fell during June and frost was still widespread
during the month of July.
