Volcano Locations

Volcanoes are found in places where tectonic plates meet.

This means that active volcanoes can be found around the world. However, the place where volcanoes can be found with the greatest concentration is the Pacific Ring of Fire. The Pacific Ring of Fire includes the Aleutian Islands, the countries of Japan, Philippines, Bougainville, Tonga, New Zealand, Indonesia, New Guinea and parts of USA (California), Mexico, and the west coast of Canada. While there are other active volcanoes all over the world it is here that most of the volcanoes are located. When it comes to scenic volcanoes tourists seem to prefer the volcanoes found in Greece, Italy, Hawaii, Iceland, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Africa, Vanuatu, and the Kamchatka peninsula.
