Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Volcano Reviews

  • Simply amazing. Weather can change fast, bring a rain jacket! Views can be breathtaking if they are visible. Look at the weather before you travel. Lava tubes and hikes are wonderful. Unique park. Take your camera and wear shoes with traction. Can be slippery and may not be suitable for older people or individuals with unsteady balance.

  • Awesome place to learn. We considered park side to hike and witness actual lava flow. It took more than 3 hours of hiking before saw actual lava flow. It was on of the life time experience. Rangers we're sharing lot of safety related info. Later we found that we could have saved 1 hour of hiking by following mountain base instead of cost line. It's recommend to carry 3-4 l of water. Disclaimer: not safe and high risk factor involved if you consider going for lava flow. Rest of the park is accessible via car.

  • Loved this!!. Take the hikes, especially across the still warm but extinct caldera, iki, at least walk the short trail along the top edge, really pretty and feels like Jurassic Park!! But be up at the top at the observation building at sunset and watch the glow from the eruption. Don't get discouraged if there are clouds, those come and go, try to be patient. >>Dress dry and warm!!! Really awesome experience!! We did the black sand beach down at the foot of the volcano first then drove up there. Great day trip! It was a pretty incredible experience for me and my family!! You see that glow, and the smoke, through the must and clouds, but don't really hear anything, but they do a good job explaining what is going on. Pretty cool!! Oh, take something got to drink if you can! :0)

  • A very beautiful place that can be very dangerous if not careful. We did the main entrance that has a lot of great hikes but keeps you away from most of the lava, but then also went to the far end of the “park” which is almost an hour drive away, rented bikes and ventured out to the flowing lava. Walking up to the lava is very cool but a Very hard hike. Proper shoes, water and lights are highly recommended. It’s a 4 mile bike ride from the rental. Most rentals give you flashlights but I would definitely bring a backup. Also very easy to be close to hot rocks and have no idea until it’s dark and the glowing lava is easier to see. A true must see but understand what danger is possible if not careful!

  • If there is one "must see" attraction on the Big Island this is it. Rain or shine Kilauea does not disappoint. How often do you get to see an actual volcano? The various stops around the crater offer lots of interesting information on the current eruptions as well as the formation of the Hawaiian Archipelago. There are some areas of the park that are closed because of the current volcanic activity. Also, if you are interested in seeing lava flows up close they are often not flowing and/or not easily accessible and require several miles of hiking.
