"Not just Volcanoes!" Top 5 Page for this destination Hawaii Volcanoes National Park by TropicGirl77

Answers to many volcano questions right at HVNP

I always get that certain excitement when planning my trip to Kilauea. I still can't understand why I wasn't this enthused when it began errupting during my teen and young adult years! I suggest you prepare for the volcano tour long before you leave home ... it may make your tour more comfortable if you had listened and brought that light rain jacket the brochure mentioned. Pack a flashlight for lava tube or tunnel exploration, or even night trekking.

FIRST STOP ... the Visitor Center for all the key facts .

What else to expect at the volcano

Well, hard to believe, but Kilauea is rich in vegetation! You will find an unbelieveable number varieties of plant life in the Volcano National Park.

    Hawaii Volcanoes looks like a very interesting and beautiful national park. Seeing a lava flow must have been quite an experience!

    When you say that the Volcano house Hotel has a warm atmosphere, I hope you don't mean from the Volcano ;-) Lovely page, I would love to see the lava flow, I have never seen anything like that!
