Beerenberg is one of the highest mountains in Norway (2277 m.asl). Around the crater there are 11 peaks above 2000 m.asl if you work with a primary factor of 10 meters. It is the northernmost active volcano on Earth and it had its last eruption in 1980. It is possible to ascend the mountain quite easily - the logistics is the challenge as it's situated on the island of Jan Mayen, one of the most isolated on the globe. Jan Mayen was nominated to become as a World Heritage site as part of the North Atlantic Ridge.
