Piton de la Fournaise is an active volcano, rising from the Indian Ocean in the southeastern corner of Réunion Island. Access is easy, as the mountain's frequent volcanic activity is a tourist attraction, so rides and tours are readily available. The walk to the top is as easy as getting there. The glowing lava showers are impressive during both day and night, and camping is permitted near the volcano's rim. The mountain's most recent eruptions were in 1986 and 1992.
