What a great place to visit. Unlike anything you can see anywhere in the world. The volcano park has just reopened after the last eruption. Great to walk around and see the different parts of the area.
Visiting Kilauea Volcano is a once in a lifetime experience to view history in the making.
The entry to the park is $25 per car. After that, everything is down to you what you do.
Go to the Visitor Centre and talk to the rangers....More
Our family visited the Kilauea crater & Thomas A Jaggar museum. What a great experience. Our 2 kids loved hiking down into the crater & walking across (it’s about 4 kms across) then switch backs up. Easy hike & well worth it. Bring water &...More
Our cruise ship sailed by one of the active fissures of Kilauea Volcano. What an awesome site! We were close enough that I got great pictures. Best seen at night. We saw it at dawn when the ship came into port, but the best viewing...More

You do not need to be part of tour granted you have your own transportation. We just grabbed a map from the Park Visitor Center. Enjoy but make sure you have a good windbreaker. The wind, even when warm, can really kick up and chill you to the bones. We have seen many people unprepared for that. Once you get away from the main areas, traffic lightens up and there are many trails worth exploring. Start your day early.
