What people say

"Explore the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our favorite way to do this is to stay into the evening with a guide and watch the orange glow from molten lava within the Kilauea caldera against the beauty of the starry evening sky, a sight only visible when the volcano is actively erupting. The nature of the volcano is unpredictable and the lava conditions change daily. Be sure to check out the lava update link I provided to get the latest forecast."
"Hawai'i Volcanoe National Park is home to two of the most active volcanoes in the world. Check the website to see if active lava flow is occruing. Regardless the trails and hikes are amazing! You can hike through lava tubes at the Thurston Lava Tubes where you will have lush foilage all around or hike the more arid areas of the park. You can hike trails and see the craters of the volcanoes which is an incredible experience. "
"Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park protects some of the most unique geological, biological, and cherished cultural landscapes in the world. Extending from sea level to 13,680 feet, the park encompasses the summits of two of the world's most active volcanoes - Kīlauea and Mauna Loa - and is a designated International Biosphere Reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site."
