Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Heating up in Hawaii

Participants at the Experience Aloha Business Exchange experienced a full day of exploring on Hawaii’s Big Island, including a farm tour, waterfall swim and a visit to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
The park is home to the Kīlauea and Mauna Loa active volcanoes.

After a morning tour of OK Farms in Hilo, home to macadamia, coffee and fruit trees, the group cooled off with a swim under a waterfall, which has exclusive access for bed and breakfast guests.

Then it was time to check out the famous volcanoes of Hawaii.
An easy walk through the national park passed steam vents and lava fields.

A highlight was the Thurston Lava Tube (Nāhuku), an underground tunnel created by a steaming hot lava flow.

The Jaggar Museum features volcanology exhibits and a viewpoint overlooking Halema’uma’u Crater.
After dinner and a cocktail, the group headed back to the viewpoint at Jaggar Museum at dusk, to take in the real highlight: the lava flow at the Halema’uma’u Crater.
