Nothing says “Hawaii” quite like seeing Pele’s power and restlessness atop Kilauea volcano in a full lake of lava. Kilauea is known around the world as one of the most continuously active volcanoes on the planet.
The foreboding environment surrounding volcanoes has tempted humans to draw near for years. Something about seeing the foundational processes of the earth captivates our imagination and causes us to stand in wonder.
You can experience the unique heat, sounds, and smells of Kilauea by visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. You can see more recent pictures and video of the lava on HAVO’s Lave Update page.
