Hawaii Volcanoes National Park — Big Island

At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, situated about 30 miles southwest of Hilo, you can witness lava-fueled geology in action. Within the park’s vast 333,086 acres: 4,091-foot Kilauea — currently world’s most active volcano — and 13,677-foot Mauna Loa — the world’s most massive volcano. Both are among the most frequently active volcanoes in the world. Currently, Kilauea’s Puu Oo-Kupaianaha eruption, which began in January 1983, is ranked as the second longest-lasting Hawaiian eruption in recorded history. The first written accounts of eruptions in Hawaii date back to the 1820s, when American missionaries arrived on the Big Island. Founded in 1916, the park includes 150 miles of hiking trails to natural wonders ranging from volcanic craters to walk-in lava tubes.

Daily updates on Kilauea volcano activity are available at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory website. For more information, click here. This year, Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory (HVO) is celebrating a century of scientific work and discovery at the site where volcanology first surfaced as a modern area of study.
