There is a lot to see in this national park, and it is well maintained, easy walks and stunning views. We headed to the Jagger museum just after sunset and were spoilt with active lava in the volcano that we could see, just stunning!

We have only one day to see the park. Would anyone suggest a preference of a helicopter or a boat for viewing the lava flow to the ocean from Kilauea?

It's your choice, boat gets closer but see more of lava crater from air!
