The largest Volcano in America would be Hawaii’s Mauna Loa, which measures more than 17,000 m (56,000 ft).
The largest volcano in America is Mauna Loa located on the island of Hawaii and also happens to be the largest volcano on our planet. The distance from its base to its summit is 17km (56,000 feet). 4km of the volcano is above sea level and it reaches down another 5km to the ocean floor. The ocean floor is in turn depressed another 8km by Mauna Loa’s great mass. The enormous volcano covers half of the island of Hawaii by itself. Mauna Loa is an active volcano and has erupted 33 times since the first well documented eruption in 1843, with the most recent in 1984.
