      Volcanoes & Earthquakes - our new free App for Android shows the latest earthquakes and active volcanoes on a map and as list, as well as volcano news from all the world. You can filter the data shown in various ways, e.g. by magnitude or age of earthquakes, the distance from your location, the status of volcanoes and so on. Volcano tours in Hawaii are the perfect way to experience the rich volcanic history of the Hawaiian Islands. Tours to the most active volcano, Mt. Kilauea, depart from Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hilo on the Big Island. Feel the excitement of Big Island’s Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and experience the power of Hawaii’s volcanic landscape.

      Active and dormant volcanoes are also found in this region. The Amazon jungle occupies the eastern edge of Peru, with the mighty river’s headwaters located in the town of Iquitos. The northern part of the jungle is known as the selva alta, while the southern regions, with their river terraces and rolling plains, are called the selva baja. The Wildlife, Ruins and Volcanoes in Galapagos, Peru and Costa Rica trip starts in the Galapagos Islands (famous for providing the setting for Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution), and while staying aboard a First Class Cruise you will visit the different islands every day.

      A volcano is a spot in Earth’s crust where molten rock, volcanic ash and certain types of gases escape from an underground chamber. Magma is the name for that molten rock when it’s below ground. Scientists call it lava once that liquid rock erupts from the ground — and may start flowing across Earth’s surface. (It’s still “lava” even after it’s cooled and solidified.).
