Travelmood predicts growth in volcano tours

Travelmood Adventures is anticipating a spike in enquiries and bookings for its volcano-inspired tours, following the Icelandic ash cloud chaos. The company has kept its volcano-themed tours on offer, including Surf & Volcanoes, Sicilian Volcanoes and the Volcano Trail, ahead of an expected increase in customer enquiries. The company's commercial manager, Valerie Hibbert, said: "An interesting by-product of the recent travel chaos caused by the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano is the renewed fascination with volcanoes that it has sparked “The story has been dominating the news and the topic of volcanoes has been well and truly brought to the fore. Over the past week or so we have been helping customers whose holidays have been affected by the airport closures to re-schedule their holidays and to get them home, if they were abroad with us. Many of them have been asking about tours we offer that involve learning more about volcanoes, having been inspired by the spectacular volcanic images in the media.” The company's volcano-inspired tours are offered in Indonesia, South America, Hawaii, New Zealand and Sicily. As an example of prices, a ten-day Surf & Volcanoes holiday to Costa Rica costs from £689 per person, based on a June 27 departure. The tour visits the destination's famous parks where guests zip line in the forest of Monteverde, listen to the rumble of Arenal Volcano and take in the beaches of Sámara. The price includes five nights’ camping accommodation and four nights’ hotel or lodge accommodation; breakfast during the hotel stays and all meals whilst camping; transport by private adventure vehicle; a Survivor adventure course in natural volcanic hot springs; a guided full-day hike in Rincon de la Vieja; scenic walks and hikes in Arenal; wildlife viewing in Monteverde; and the services of a bilingual tour leader.
