The Land of Frozen Fire

Head first to the small, off-the-beaten-path town of Pahoa with its inviting boardwalk. Nearby is Lava Tree State Park, a once lush rainforest that happened to be in the path of a lava flow. The trees burned from the inside out, leaving hollow stone skeletons. Now covered with moss, they make for an eerie panorama.


Visit Ahalanui’s volcanically heated warm springs. Along the way and during brief stops, view the striking scenery that results when lava meets the sea – cliffs, lava tubes, and blowholes. Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to see a blowhole spouting water high in the air.


The small fishing village of Kalapana and Kaimu the site of the original black sand beach were both destroyed by a 1990 lava flow. Take a walk on this “frozen fire” and get a look at the active volcanic vent in the distance. Chat with a survivor of the eruption and view a photo exhibit of the area you just walked through to see how it looked before buried in 1990.


Note: Participants must wear closed-toe shoes and be able to walk short distances unaided.
