Volcanic Park

Tristan da Cunha / Africa

The 1961 Volcano and Volcanic ParkLooming alarmingly close over the east of the settlement is the parasitic volcanic cone and lava flow whose eruption in 1961 led to the evacuation of the population to England for two years. Now that it is no longer active, there is now a path to the summit, which tourists can take on organised hikes or on their own. Beside the volcano is Volcanic Park, a place for peace and quiet built to commemorate 50th anniversary of the eruption.
