Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

coming into the park

If you are visiting the big island of Hawaii, you have to take the time to visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The park is home to two of the world’s most active volcanoes and a host of interesting and unique volcanic features available for you to explore.

You can walk along the edge of Kilauea Crater, hike out across recent lava flows and see an active eruption occurring. Within the park you can experience an active eruption, a giant volcanic caldera, lava tunnels, volcanic craters, lava flows, a tropical jungle, a barren landscape and more. From the waves crashing along the lava cliffs on the shore you travel up through a tropical rainforest towards the barren volcanic areas and then you climb even further to the arctic tundra areas of the summit of Mauna Loa. There’s a whole lot to experience. It’s all amazing and it’s all at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Honestly, no visit to the island of Hawaii is complete without at least a day in this park.
