Hawaii Volcanoes Deliver Explosive Fun For Everyone

It is rare that you can watch an island grow almost under your feet, especially while you're on vacation. But when you explore the fiery phenomenon of fresh lava flowing at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, you can do just that. The Kilauea Visitor Center is the start of your adventure. Here is where you can join a ranger-led activity, learn about current park conditions, watch the spectacular 25 minute film "Born of Fire, Born of the Sea" for a history of the Hawaiian Islands or head out on a self-guided drive along two main viewing roads - Crater Rim Drive or Chain of Craters Road. Along the way, explore scenic overlooks, steam vents and even hike to the Keanakako'i Crater.
