Volcanoes National Park

Explore Volcanoes National Park, home to Kilauea, the most active volcano in the world. Learn how volcanic events have impacted the landscape and the lives of the people that live here.


A one-hour drive transports you to Volcanoes National Park, where 70 million years of volcanic history are on display. At just over 4,000 feet, Kilauea is not the tallest volcano on the Big Island, but as the world’s most active one, it leaves a large lava footprint. Drive along the crater’s rim for views of this dramatic landscape.


Learn about the birth of the still growing Hawaiian Islands at the Jaggar Museum, where you'll view the Halemaumau Crater – in Hawaiian mythology said to be home to Pele, Goddess of Fire and Volcanoes. You'll also have the opportunity to walk through the extinct Thurston Lava Tube, a cave formed by a river of lava. End your day with a visit to Big Island Candies.


Note: Please be advised that while at Volcanoes National Park, you may encounter natural sulfur gases, which can affect those with respiratory problems, and you won't see molten lava. Thurston Lava Tube is not wheelchair accessible due to uneven pathways and steps. An additional optional shopping stop may be provided.
