Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Established in 1916)


THE PARK re-opened on SEPTEMBER 22, 2018

Hawaii’s only World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, the park features two of the world’s most active volcanoes (Mauna Loa and Kilauea). Volcanoes National Park is approximately 35 miles to the north and east of the Punalu’u Bake Shop off Hwy 11. Covering more than 300,000 acres from sea level to the summit of Mauna Loa at 13,677 feet above sea level, the park offers spectaculars views of an ancient and ever changing volcanic landscape. The park is a great place to hike, take photos and experience nature as we rarely ever get to do.
