Now accepting reservations!
After months of anticipation, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park and Volcano House have reopened!
Be among the first visitors in the world to experience the dramatic changes to our landscape following months of eruptions and seismic activity at the summit of Kīlauea.
While the natural event depleted the lava lake inside the Halemaʻumaʻu Crater and the lava flows from Puʻu ʻŌʻō, according to USGS scientists, the depth of the crater has more than tripled while its diameter has more than doubled – an incredible sight to see right from our windows!
And since there is very little volcanic gas rising from the crater, our nighttime skies are some of the clearest we have seen in decades. Since our corner of Hawaii Island has little-to-no light pollution, this means incredible star-gazing opportunities.
There are also many famed hiking trails and cultural sites open throughout the park. These include the Crater Rim Trail between Volcano House and the Kilauea Military Camp, the Sulphur Banks Trail, the Kīlauea Iki Overlook, Devastation Trail, portions of the Crater Rim Drive to the Keanakāko’i Crater (open to pedestrians and cyclists only), the Mauna Loa Road, the Chain of Craters Road, sections of the Escape Road from Highway 11, the Kīlauea Visitor Center, and the Hawaii Pacific Parks Association store at the visitor center.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
