Things To Do
The gift shop at Volcano House features an array of Native Hawaiian art, jewelry, apparel and crafts made by local artisans.
Dine in-house at The Rim for a truly unforgettable experience. Enjoy creative island cuisine made with primarily locally-sourced ingredients while taking in the view of Halema’uma’u Crater, right from the dining room. Be sure to hang out in Uncle George’s Lounge for delicious cocktails and pupus.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is located 30 miles SW of Hilo and within it is Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes on earth. The park features over 150 miles of hiking trails that lead you through craters, deserts, rainforests, steam vents and even a lava tube. When visiting volcano, begin at the Kilauea Visitor Center for an introduction, maps, and other information about areas to explore. Plan on driving around Crater Rim Drive, visiting the Kilauea overlook, Jaggar Museum, Halema’uma’u Crater, Devastation Trail, Kilauea Iki Crater overlook, and Thurston Lava Tube.
