It may surprise you to hear that Europe is covered with volcanoes. No need to worry though, the vast majority are extinct or dormant. Dormant volcanoes are technically active but haven’t erupted for a long time. They are just expected to erupt again at some stage in the future.
Most of Europe’s volcanoes are concentrated around the Mediterranean or Iceland, on the boundaries between tectonic plates. A volcano is considered active if it erupted in the past 10,000 years but lava can often be seen gushing upwards from many volcanoes much more frequently.
