Wolf Volcano is the highest peak in the Galapagos Islands and is situated on Isabela Island and reaches 1,707 m (5,600 ft). It is a shield volcano with a characteristic upturned soup bowl shape. The volcano was named after Theodor Wolf, a German geologist who studied the Galapagos Islands in the 19th century. Wolf Island in the north of the Galapagos is also named after the geologist. Its height makes Wolf Volcano an “ultra prominent peak”, which is a peak with a topographic prominence of over 1500m. The Wolf volcano erupted May 25, 2015. The volcano is not located near a populated area. Wolf had been inactive 33 years. The lava is flowing down the volcano’s east and southeast sides, the pink land iguana inhabit the north and west sides and have not been endangered. See the new lava flows.
