The Big Island of Hawaii is home to the world’s most active volcano, Kilauea. Hawaii volcano tours are a great way to experience the magic of mother nature in action, and form lasting vacation memories. This past week Kilauea Volcano has had increased activity and lava levels in the crater have been rising.
Mount Kilauea: Hot, Hot, Hot!
The best time for Hawaii volcano tours is when it’s most active, so here’s a look at what’s hot right now.
According to the United States Geological Survey, lava levels at the Halema’uma’u crater are “among the highest levels we have measured for the lake.” This makes for excellent viewing because higher levels of lava increases visibility from the Jaggar Museum and Observatory and the glow emitted from the caldera. Visibility and activity has been at an increase since 2008, when an explosion enlarged the Halema’uma’u crater by about 30 feet.
Wonders of Hawaii Volcano Tours
Hawaii volcano tours offers you the chance to experience the forces which have shaped our planet like never before. Visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is one of the only ways to see geological features such as the Thurston Lava Tube, volcanic steam vents, and of course, the active Kilauea volcano.
There are also cultural landmarks which can be seen on Hawaii volcano tours. The Pu’u Loa Petroglyphs were carved into the hardened lava by ancient Hawaiians, creating a connection to the past.
Visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is surely an amazing experience you and your family will not soon forget. Discover Hawaii Tours offers inter-island volcano tours, so if visiting Hawaii’s volcanoes is on your “must do” list, it has never been easier to accomplish!
The only question left to ask yourself is: Are you ready for this adventure?
