1. Known for its reshaping of the surrounding landscape, Mount St. Helens in Washington State in the United States of America is one of the country’s most powerful and influential natural forces. Last erupting in 2008, and most infamously erupting and destroying its surrounding area in 1980, Mount St. Helens is a true wonder. Visitors are welcome to explore Mount St. Helens on foot by hiking the Harmony Trail that coils down to Spirit Lake. Visitors may also enjoy the stopping by the Johnston Ridge Observatory, famously known for its magnificent views of the craters and still steaming lava dome. For those who love a good hike, the Boundary Trail, nestled in the heart of Mount St. Helens blast zone, is home to several unbelievable views. For those who prefer something a little different, helicopter tours of Mount St. Helens are also great ways to explore this volcano from a unique perspective.
2. The world’s most active volcano—Mount Kilauea—is located on the Big Island (Kona) of Hawaii. Embarking on a Hawaii volcano tour is an incredible adventure, and any Hawaiian remains incomplete without exploring the natural power of Mount Kilauea. This particular volcano’s eruptions over thousands of years lead to the formation of the very island on which it stands, pointing to the Earth’s power for creation and destruction. You may choose to explore Mont Kilauea on foot, by boat, or by helicopter; each experience offers unimaginable views of this volcano, and each type of tour is completely unique, but they each include the chance to explore the ever popular Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
