A visit to Volcano, Hawaii is not complete without a trip into the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park! Whether you only have time for a drive along Crater Rim Drive at the summit of Mt. Kilauea or have the time to see the red glow of active lava flow as it pours into the Pacific Ocean; seeing Kilauea first hand is a trip of a lifetime!

While you are visiting Volcanoes National Park, stop by the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum, also along Crater Rim Drive at Stop #2. Everything you could want to know about volcanoes, as well as information on the 30 year eruption of Mt. Kilauea is at the Jaggar Museum.

The Pua Po o lava tube is another "can't miss" in the Volcanoes National Park. The verdant tropical rainforest is the perfect back drop for the lava tube that is carved throughout, but you cannot make this hike on your own. Access to the Pua Po o Lava Tube is only permitted with a park ranger and happens only once a week. You can catch the hike on Wednesday at Noon. There is limited space on the hike - only 12 people each week - so you need to make a reservation in advance.

Hawaii Volcano National Park is open year round. The visitor's center is open daily from 7:45am to 5pm. The fee for entry is $10 per vehicle or $5 per person if entering the park on foot, bike or motorcycle.
