In terms of current activity, another volcano I doubt anyone has heard of before deserves mention:

El Hierro (the Canary Island) appears to be rumbling once again with recent swarms of earthquakes in the last day or two. I would not be surprised to see some form of renewed activity there in the near future.

I see that the alert status has now been raised from green to yellow in parts of the island in response to the recent activity

As well as a 4.2 magnitude quake (one of over one thousand quakes in the last week) there has over the last 7 days been over 7.5cm of vertical uplift/deformation across the island. Impressive.

And on another front, there was a quake a couple of hours ago in Eritrea very close to where last year's quake was at Nabro. I wonder if it may have come to life again?

Did anyone see Volcano Watch last night?

Never thought it was possible to make a programme focusing on volcanoes so dull.

Sakurajima of Kyushu, Japan, is one of the world's most active volcano, producing spectacular vulcanian eruptions and lightning display, and does so on a daily/weekly basis. It's eruptions are currently becoming stronger.

It's most recent eruption can be seen here:-

After some seismic activity over recent weeks I see that Mt Tongariro in New Zealand's North Island is erupting (to what level I'm not sure).

http://www.civildefence.govt.nz/

I see that White Island volcano (also NZ) had a small eruption last night. Coincidence?

NASA have a great image showing the ash cloud over NZ's North Island from the Tongariro eruption.

Things at Tongariro and White Island are relatively quiet at the moment but that could change. Whether they were little blips or "throat clearing" before something bigger is yet to be determined. An interesting time after a fairly quiet few years for New Zealand's volcanoes.

Sakurajima volcano (south Japan) has released largest amount of ash in 20 years. The ground is swollen around volcano.

Thanks for the heads up.

However I do wonder if they'd be better going somewhere like Kamchatka as, barring unforeseen circumstances, the live "action" in Iceland will be rather limited.
