The Marum Lava Lake in the tiny nation Vanuatu is one of the largest boiling lava lakes on earth. Google Maps explain how they got the images:

To get inside the active volcano, we partnered with explorers Geoff Mackley and Chris Horsly, who repelled 400 meters into the Marum crater with a Street View Trekker collecting 360-degree imagery of the journey down to the molten lava lake, which is roughly the size of two football fields.

The Grand Prismatic Spring is nearby Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park. It is the largest and most colourful spring in the world, and can be seen from space. The steam it gives off is tremendous, visible, and has a very unpleasant odor. Scientist say that if the Grand Prismatic becomes larger or hotter, it could be sign that Yellowstone’s volcano could erupt.
