3 Days Nyiragongo Volcano Hike Tour

Prepare to be awe-struck by the beauty, the wonder and the captivating views of the Nyiragongo volcano with its lake of fire on top on this 3 Days Nyiragongo Volcano hike. The Nyiragongo volcano is an active volcano of the Virunga mountains whose recent eruption (May 2021) caused great destruction of property near Goma and some lives were lost. Trips to hike this great wonder were temporarily halted but we hope they will resume soon. This trip will help you to be counted among the lucky few to reach the top of this great wonder. An overnight on top overlooking the burning lake will give you lasting memories and great photo moments. Forget about the comfort of a hotel room and be ready to roll out for an adventure where you will sleep under the open skies in a mountain shelter with a sleeping bag as your mattress and cover as you gaze at the stars.
