Our family visited the Kilauea crater & Thomas A Jaggar museum. What a great experience. Our 2 kids loved hiking down into the crater & walking across (it’s about 4 kms across) then switch backs up. Easy hike & well worth it. Bring water &...More
Our cruise ship sailed by one of the active fissures of Kilauea Volcano. What an awesome site! We were close enough that I got great pictures. Best seen at night. We saw it at dawn when the ship came into port, but the best viewing...More
Viewed from the lookout point at the museum, the Kilauea volcano is located along the southern shore of the island, the volcano is between 300,000 and 600,000 years old and emerged above sea level about 100,000 years ago. It is the second youngest of the...More
This is definitely not a routine holiday destination. While I am writing this review the volcano must be devastating the area and changing the landscape of big island. But visiting the Kilauea Volcano and spotting the lava as shown in my pictures is once in...More

You do not need to be part of tour granted you have your own transportation. We just grabbed a map from the Park Visitor Center. Enjoy but make sure you have a good windbreaker. The wind, even when warm, can really kick up and chill you to the bones. We have seen many people unprepared for that. Once you get away from the main areas, traffic lightens up and there are many trails worth exploring. Start your day early.
