from Evening Volcano Special Tour
This is a tour unlike any other. Spend the day exploring the unique geography of Hawaii’s “Big Island”. A visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park will inform you about the seismic activity that’s been a constant on the Big Island and the culture that sprang up around it. You’ll see Mauna Loa, the world’s largest volcano, and Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano. You’ll also see other dormant volcanoes, lava beds, and steam vents while discovering the legends meant to explain these natural phenomena.

While there is no guarantee of a red-hot lava flow sighting, you may see a smoldering crater or a steam vent. By the tour’s end, you’ll know exactly how and why volcanoes occur. You’ll also have the opportunity to take in some unique scenery along the way.

Great place to stay overnight and look into the crater - cannot see the lava or glow at night, but lots of steam vents - watch the cloud form every morning above the crater - nice rooms - superb dinner and breakfast in the restaurant - many trails are closed due to recent activity.

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 on Hawaiian delights. 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. It contained poke, poi, fish, even haupia. The service was very attentive as well.

We stayed in a crater-view room and enjoyed the view. There is no red glow anywhere anymore, but you can see steam vents all over, and on a clear day it is magnificent. The restaurant was good, and the pub was fine for a quick lunch.

We forked out the extra for a crater view room, I'm not sure why you would stay here if you didn't. Food was delicious in the restaurant and cocktails so so good. Service was good, once in a lifetime experience.
