Volcán Minchinmávida volcano is an active basaltic-to-andesitic stratovolcano in southern Chile, west of Lago Reñihue. It was observed and in activity by C. Darwin in 1834 during his historic journey to the Galapagos Islands. The massive glacier-coverd volcano is elongated in a NE-SW direction and and has a saddle-shaped summit with an elongated 3-km-wide caldera. A young crater is located on the ENE side of the complex. 2 major explosive eruptions had occurred about 3000 and 6000 years ago and produced significant tephra deposits extending to the east. Activity in historic times consisted of small explosive eruptions. The last eruption was from February to March 1835, produced a lava flow from a flank crater as well as lahars that reached the coast at Punta Chana.
When neighboring Chaitén erupted after a century-long repose interval in 2008, it was first believed that Minchinmávida was having a new eruption, since Chaitén was poorly known at that time.
Eyjafjallajökull volcano photos: The volcano in Iceland with the unpronounceable name... but famous in 2010 when its ash clouds drifted over Europe and forced a unprecedented large-scale airspace closure for several days, stranding millions of passengers.
Raung volcano photos: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
1-3 day excursions: If you're interested in volcanoes, there are a number of excursions you should not miss if you're in the area: hike to the craters of Stromboli volcano, climb Etna volcano, get to know the unique volcanic history of Santorini - some examples of shorter (1-3 days) tours and excursions we offer.
