The 16 Most Dangerous and Beautiful Places on Earth

For most people, vacations are about relaxation, but for some it’s all about adventure. If you’d like your holiday to come with a side of danger, here are 16 risky but incredible places you can visit.

Bárðarbunga Volcano, Iceland

Iceland is home to beautiful barren landscapes, but is situated on top of two tectonic plates and a mountain of molten lava, making it home to around 30 volcanoes. The second largest of them, Bárðarbunga, began erupting again in August of 2014, attracting danger-seeking travelers from across the globe. Don’t get too close, though: Volcanoes are obviously unpredictable and can emit poisonous gases.
