Perhaps it's the folklore, tales of alien portals where UFOs enter and exit the earth, or simply a fantasy shared by millions who witnessed an erupting volcano model at their childhood science fair. Whatever the inspiration, lava lovers are drawn to these sites, however active, for the destruction and power (as well as the famously fertile soil and thermal spas) that these earthly phenomena can produce.
The most recent headlines have the hardcore volcano tourists scrambling to visit Iceland, where a long-dormant volcano shocked the world by spewing fireworks and great plumes of ash last April.
