Go volcano boarding


Skydiving? Bungee jumping? Zzzz. For a one-of-a-kind adrenaline rush, hit the lava surf of a volcano. There’s Cerro Negro in Nicaragua, which hasn’t erupted since 1999. Or Mount Yasur in the South Pacific, which erupts every day. It’s a modern version of the ancient Hawaiian ritual of lava sledding. Don your crash suit, climb to the drop zone, and expect to hit speeds up to 30 mph. Is it safe? It’s a goddamn volcano. But when is glory ever safe?
