Witnessing nature’s drama up close is not for the faint of heart. Luckily (or unluckily) for North Americans, the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean offer just the sort of terrible weather and active volcanoes that make for heart-pounding vacations. And if you’re looking to go farther afield, you’ll have even more thrilling options around the world.

These trips aren’t for everyone. If your idea of risk-taking is switching to 40 SPF sunscreen after the 60 runs out, then avert your eyes now. But if crashing, roaring, flashing nature is up your alley, these destinations have dream vacation written all over them.
