"Home to the active Kilaue Volcano" Top 5 Page for this destination Hawaii Volcanoes National Park by Jerelis

The ultimate ecotour

Hawaii Volcanoes NP is home to the active Kilaue Volcano.

The lush greenery of tree ferns and other tropical plants, lava tubes, cinder cones, odd mineral formations, steam vents and the vast barren craters along Chain of Craters Road make this the ultimate ecotour.

The Big Island of Hawaii

Don't forget to visit our Big Island of Hawaii site here at VT.

With 266 miles of coastline made up of white-coral and black-lava the Big Island is so large and varied that there is really a lot to see. The island is also called "Orchid Island" or "Volcano Isle" which says all about the beauty of the island.

    What a place! I missed the chance to go there last year, but plan to catch up in October. There's no place like Hawaii! But.. Budweiser? If I were you I'd bring Grolsch from home :)
