Savor wine and hors d’oeuvres at the Volcano House, the only hotel in Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii’s only UNESCO World Heritage site. As an introduction to the wonders of the surrounding volcanic landscape, you will accompany a volcanologist on a leisurely walk along the summit rim of Kilauea, one of the world’s most active and easily accessible volcanoes. It will be quite the experience as you peer into the crater that stretches down about three miles. Depending on the state of the volcano, you may see steam rising from the vents or an active lava lake. You will then head to the Volcano House, a historical hotel that Mark Twain visited in 1866 and mentioned in his book “Roughing It.” There, you will be served Hawaiian fruit wine with traditional hors d’oeuvres known as pupus. The views from the hotel are spectacular as it perches about 4,000 feet above sea level and overlooks the Kilauea caldera.
