The highest vulcano of each continent
The Volcanic Seven Summits are the highest volcanoes on each of the seven continents, just as the Seven Summits are the highest peaks on each of the seven continents.
Summiting all seven is regarded as a mountaineering challenge, first postulated as such in 1999. While the normal Seven Summits have already been climbed by several hundreds of mountaineers, the Volcanic Seven Summits have only been climbed by a handful of people yet.
Two of the Volcanic Seven Summits are also in the Seven Summits list. Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Elbrus, which were formed volcanically, are the highest peaks of their respective continents.
