Top Ways to See Volcanoes National Park

The island of Hawai'i is home to one of the most active volcanoes in the world — Kilauea was erupting from 1983 until fall 2018 and has formed dynamic landscapes that are accessible to visitors. Some of the most popular attractions at the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park are the lava tubes and the craters. Get close to the action and book a tour to explore this incredible force of nature.

Private VIP Tour & Volcanoes National Park After Dark (from Hilo)

The romance of the national park comes alive at night with this private tour. Sights seen along the way include the Kilauea Caldera, the steam vents, Kilauea Iki Overlook, Holei Sea Arch, Thurston Lava Tube and Halema’uamu’a Crater.

Kilauea Volcano Overnight Camping Adventure

There’s a little bit of everything on this tour — snorkeling, a tour of a Kona coffee farm, checking out the honu (Hawaiian turtles) on the black sands of Puna’lu’u Beach and, of course, lava viewing at Halemaumau Crater when active flows are present.

Evening Volcano Explorer

Hike across previous lava flows and witness the extensive destruction of molten lava on the town of Kalapana and Kaimu Bay. Visit areas within Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park and, when the sun goes down, see the glow of Halema’uma’u Crater when lava is flowing.

Akaka Falls Volcano & Zip

Seven ziplines, including one that soars above a 250-foot waterfall, kick off this tour. Added to the mix is a swim under that same waterfall before departing for Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park to check out the steam vents and the Halemaumau and Kilauea Iki craters.
