What to expect

Journey through Hawaii Island's incredible range of ecosystems and climate zones before experiencing first-hand the phenomena that makes it all possible – an erupting volcano!

This in-depth experience takes you off-the-beaten-path to sites unknown to most visitors including a private access lava tube. Stay after dark to see Kilauea’s latest eruption light up the night sky. An eruption began recently and the situation is subject to change at any moment, a lava lake has formed and is currently contained to an inaccessible lake deep at the bottom of Halemaumau Crater, while the lava itself is currently not visible from the designated viewing areas in the park, its bright orange glow lights up the crater and sky after dark.

Venture down Chain of Craters Road to the coast through rainforests, lava flows, and cinder fields. Your certified park guide will share with you the geology and natural and cultural history that make Hawaii Volcanoes National Park one of the most fascinating places on earth for residents, scientists, and visitors alike.
