Loved his place. The vista is amazing. We went to see the Lava Tubes. This was an easy walk from the car park. You can then walk down to the bottom of the crater. The steps are fairly steep but my family thought it was...More

A must see. Well organised with a good information centre that uses text, video and exhibits to educate. Only downside: because people have been foolhardy in the past, visitors are kept at a distance. There's still plenty of scope for exploring though: walk through a...More

This is a haul if you're staying anywhere but Volcano, but so worth it! Here you can get a true sense of the power of Pele, and see landscapes that are so amazing. There are a couple of well paved walks or actual hikes that...More

Hi. You can drive part of the way to the volcano but have to walk the rest. The hills are more like slopes. It's pretty much a straight shot there, with not a whole lot to see until you get to the volcano. Keep in mind it is... More
