Mt Beerenberg

Earth’s northernmost active volcano and the first sight of approaching Jan Mayen

Mt Beerenberg

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Jan Mayen

The most northerly active volcano

When sailing to the remote Arctic island of Jan Mayen, the first thing that will appear out of the watery horizon is the icy white crest of Mt. Beerenberg. But sleepy as it may seem, this 2,277-meter high (7,470 feet) stratovolcano is still active and had its last eruption in 1985. If local conditions permit, we attempt to see this natural wonder up close.
