Montserrat Volcano Tours

Montserrat Volcano ToursMontserrat is the home of the Soufrière Hills volcano, which is one active geothermal hot spot. Volcano tours are an exciting way to spend a day in the islands. The volcano destroyed Plymouth, the abandoned capitol of Montserrat that is otherwise known as the Pompeii of the Caribbean, in 1997.

For those of you who are do-it-yourself-ers, you’ll find several facilities around the volcano made for viewing. A short distance from Plymouth is the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, the closest spot to the action. You can also view the volcano from Jack Boy Hill and Garibaldi Hill, though the second requires a four wheel drive or a difficult climb to get the views.
