‘s most recent volcanoes have included Grímsvötn in 2011, Eyjafjallajökull in 2010, Grímsvötn in 2004 and Hekla in 2000. This incredible natural
phenomenon is quite a feat to capture – here are 18 of the best Instagrams. This website
organized by the geological department at the University of Iceland gives great information about where Iceland’s volcanoes are located and provide up to date information about earthquakes and possible eruption warnings. Iceland actually has 130 volcanoes in total, both active and inactive because of its location on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The country basically sits in the middle of, or on top of, two tectonic plates with 30 active volcanic systems running through the island. These Instagrammers, however, managed to catch the incredible event.
