Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Volcano Reviews
While it is important to note that your experience here can be adjusted due to circumstances beyond your control, this is by far the primary reason that people go to the big island of Hawaii. There are a lot of older geographical features, such as older lava flows and some really nice hikes. I've done a couple of them and they have all lived up to expectations. Remember, though, that the ability to either see lava and/or see the glow of the crater at the summit are highly weather- and volcanic activity-based. Right now (January, 2018), there is no lava entering the ocean and it is a long and strenuous hike to the active lava flows. Also, depending on the weather each evening, the glowing of the crater at the summit may not easily be visible, either. Bottom line - still by far the best reason to go to the big island, but have an alternative plan in case everything you want to see is not happening the day you want to see it.
Largest active volcano in the world. Fantastic view. Was hoping for some tremors or earth breaking open but it ended up being a safe, normal visit. People from all over the world. Cool scene. The only sad part were the people at Jagger Museum jumping up and down and banging on the seismograph despite the sign that says not to. Really cool visit. My recommendation is to go at night and bring something light yet warm.
Amazing views, landscape. Place has marked lava flows and craters based on historic records. There are multiple "loops" you can drive and see landscapes. Some places land formations look other worldly. The place has very few food options, packing lunch is a good idea. The crater with active lava is very nice to see at night. There are trails on which you can get close to the thick lava flow.
Wonderful place to spend whole day and learn so much about nature and earth. This was an amazing place for my kids as well. The visitor center has huge parking lot and very helpful staff. They have good map of the area and a fun program for the kids (a questionnaire that needs to be filled after visiting important places). Pack some good food, water for the whole day, good shoes for walking/hiking and jackets as temperature there drops low and it was windy as well.
Over rated. We walked through a very touristy lava tube and walked 20 miles without seeing any lava flowing. We also were forced to stay on a very narrow path as we walked through a volcano creator. If I were to do it again, I wouldn't do it. I would spend my time on the other side of the island swimming with wild dolphins. Don't take my word for it. Go and see for yourself.
