This comprehensive book addresses the pressing need for up-to-date literature on volcanic destinations (active and dormant) and their role in tourism worldwide in chapters and case studies. The book presents a balanced view about the volcano-based tourism sector worldwide and discusses important issues such as the different volcanic hazards, potential for disasters and accidents and safety recommendations for visitors. Individual chapters and case studies are contributed by a number of internationally based co-authors, with expertise in geology, risk management, environmental science and other relevant disciplines associated with volcanoes. Also covered are risk aspects of volcano tourism such as risk perception, risk management and public safety in volcanic environments. Discussions of the demand for volcano tourism, including geotourism and adventure tourism as well as some historical facts related to volcanoes, with case studies of interesting socio-cultural settings are included.

“The book is nicely edited, informative, and its chapters are of a good length with numerous nice color figures … . It is an important book that is the product of the first attempt to produce a strong and balanced overview of the current state of volcano tourism research. I would say that the book reaches this goal, and I recommend the book to anyone who wishes to work on volcanic geoheritage, volcano tourism, or even in volcano geoconservation projects.” (Károly Németh, Bulletin of Volcanology, Vol. 78, 2016)

“As the title implies, this book, part of the ‘Geoheritage, Geoparks and Geotourism’ series, explores the relationship between volcanic landscapes and their role in volcano-based geotourism. … All discussions are well referenced and supported by excellent color photographs, geologic maps, graphs, tables, and charts. … The overall value of this book is its comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of the international volcano tourism sector. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” (J. B. Huffman, Choice, Vol. 52 (11), July, 2015)
