A Legacy Of Aloha

Volcanoes National Park is a world unto itself with a beautiful and ever-changing landscape. Inside the park lies the Volcano House Hotel and Namakanipaio Campground, both of which allow guests to step backward in history and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the region. The hotel has come a long way from the one-room shelter that was first constructed in the mid-19th century. Now, it is a charming and warm place to stay and relax after a day of exploring the wonders of Volcanoes National Park.

The Area

Volcanoes National Park is a massive park that encompasses and protects an area that contains two of the world’s most active volcanoes as well as some of the most mysterious geological and biological occurrences anywhere in the world. This region is shaped by nearly constant lava flows, and as a result, the scenery inside the park is truly spectacular to behold. Tourists, geologists, and scientists flock to the park every year to climb on the slopes of Kilauea and Mauna Loa to see volcanic activity up close.

Nearby Activities

There are only a handful of places in the world where you can be in close proximity to active volcanoes, and this is one of them. Volcanoes National Park has a near-endless variety of options for driving and hiking adventures, but one thing you will want to make sure that you do is to see the Kilauea Crater. There are several lookouts over the crater that you can hike to, the most convenient of which is a one-mile hike that starts just up the road from the visitor center. Another activity near Kilauea you can do on the same day is the Thurston Lava Tube. This 500-year-old lava tube once ran red-hot with magma bubbling up from the earth’s crust. Now, you can walk through the expansive tube on a footpath which is illuminated with lanterns. If you are more interested in a drive through the park rather than a hike, you can’t go wrong with the Chain of Craters Road which winds its way through an otherworldly landscape all the way down to the ocean.

The Hotel

The hotel is an incredible historic building that will make you feel right at home. The rooms are designed to give guests optimal views of the surrounding natural beauty and provide the modern hotel amenities you have come to expect. Standard rooms are ideal for 1 – 4 people and feature rustic cabin accents with a homey feel. Volcano Crater View rooms are the same size and layout as the Standard rooms, with the distinguishing factor being the breathtaking view of the Halema’uma’u crater. The Deluxe Volcano Crater View rooms take it one step further by giving guests an unmatched vantage point from which to see the Kilauea Caldera. ADA-accessible rooms are also available upon request.
