Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Volcano Reviews

  • Another fabulous US National Park experience! All they are missing is one of those always-amazing introductory films. But they make up for it with well-done ranger talks, extremely knowledgeable, patient rangers, well-marked trails, and extraordinary sights that will take your breath away. The 4-mi hike through the crater is not difficult, but is made MUCH more meaningful if you purchase the trail guide before you go, at the Visitor's Center. Trail takes you through multiple climate, geological, and topographical zones. Definitely worth the time. The 1-mile hike is a shorter hiking alternative and may fit your schedule better, but is significantly less interesting and varied. The Jagger Museum is more like a typical National Park Visitor's Center than a "museum" in terms of high educational value. Make it a must-do! Some interactive components and video's of recent eruptions; likely your only opportunity to see some "Pele's Hair." Ideal schedule is to go to the Jagger Museum early in your visit, before hiking, to learn what you'll be seeing. Then return at sunset for a deeper dive into the exhibits, then walk outside to watch the astounding orange glow from the volcano - visible only after dark, and - if you're lucky - a bit of lava sputtering into the air. Though the park closes in the evening, the gates remain open. That means you can drive into the park, navigate your way to the Jagger Museum overlook, and watch the spectacle when no other tourists are jockeying with you for the best view. It's a little different every night, and from hour to hour. If you are in the area several nights, take in this spectacle after dark at least twice - ideally after the crowds have retreated. Take a rain poncho, a warm coat, and a flashlight.

  • This park is a must see! I was here in January of this year and fell in love. The first day that I went here I made it there around sunset and I'm so glad I did because the sky was crystal clear and the stars looked surreal. And you get to see Kilauea glowing vibrantly and lighting up the sky. The next day that I was here I got there earlier in the day and spent a lot of them driving around. Definitely check out the lava tubes and the chain of craters road! You won't be disappointed.

  • Definitely drive the chain of craters road down to the coast. This is where the hike starts to see the lava flowing into the ocean, but even if you're not doing that, you can see the steam plumes. Great views and a beautiful drive -- the road is paved, but steep and curvy, with lots of places to stop along the way, including the Thurston lava tube. The other place to see active lava is the Jaggar museum, on the other side of the park. Great views of the Kilauea caldera and the active crater, can be quite crowded

  • What an amazing day! We rented our own car so we could explore on our own. The steam vents along the sides of the road were really something. And viewing all of the many craters was awe inspiring. This was the most memorable day out of our entire cruise to all of the islands!

  • Bring a raincoat! Then you can more easily enjoy the variety of outdoor activities, if various levels of activeness. It can be quite misty, hard to predict, but hopefully you get good views! Lava tubes and steam vents were unique and low key. What a neat change of scenery. The big island is awesomely diverse and you get to see that here. Go to the town of volcano for dinner and come back at night- the glow of lava is otherworldly.
