Great lunch & outstanding view!

My husband and I stopped at Volcano House on a whim. It was a clear day and you could see right into the Kilauea caldera while dining. I had a ginger shrimp with jasmine rice in a sweet and sour broth. My husband had the Hawaiian sampler which was beautifully presented in a bento box with poke, poi, fish, and haupia. The service was very attentive as well.

Volcano House is Open

An old-fashioned hotel with a killer view! The Halema’uma’u crater is no longer glowing red, but the recent landscape changes are fascinating post-eruption. The hotel is very safe, no worries about the lava. In fact, there's no hot lava anywhere on the island right now. But you can drive to the new Black Sand Beach at Issac Hale, and people are surfing there!

The most exhilarating aspect of hiking the Kīlauea Iki Trail is the descent through lush rainforest to a still steaming crater lava lake.

Take your experience to new heights—literally. Many companies offer zip lining tours so you can see the rainforest and waterfalls from above.

The aroma of eucalyptus trees and fresh air is the distinct fragrance of the Nāmakanipaio Campground. See the lava fields, grill, explore, and plenty more.
