Iceland's erupting Fagradalsfjall and more spectacular images of volcanoes

Love Exploring Logo By loveEXPLORING staff of Love Exploring | Slide 1 of 42: Did you know there are at least 1,350 active volcanoes around the world and roughly 20 active volcanic eruptions on any given day? While many of them occur deep under the ocean – most volcanoes are found at the edges of the Pacific Oceanic plate, a horseshoe-shaped zone known as the Ring of Fire – occasionally violent outbursts of smoke, ash and lava happen on land. Here, we take a look at some of the most significant volcanic eruptions in the last decade, including Iceland's currently erupting Fagradalsfjall.
