The tour was actually called "Land of Frozen Fire" and was advertised to take you to the "most active areas" of lava. I expected to see flowing lava but that was not the case. The closest we got was about 10 miles!

The scenery was absolutely stunning over the volcano. This is probably something I will never get to witness again and so I am so glad I did this.
