Activities/Attractions: Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, 28 miles from Hilo at an elevation of 3700 feet, Volcano Village sits at the entrance to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, home of Kilauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes; Kilauea being the most active volcano on the planet. Kilauea has been erupting   almost non-stop for 20 years. If you can bear the unbelievable heat, you can walk right up to the flow, and in parts where it has cooled, you can walk over it knowing that just inches below is the essence of all things created.

This is the power of Kilauea - not in any spectacular form but in a deeper appreciation of beauty. If you are to explore the lava flows, it is highly recommended to take a walking tour with Arnott's Hiking - they offer the only supervised hike to the edge of the lava flow and have been doing so for over four years - however placid the lava might appear, this is a dangerous region.

  • Hawaii Volcano National Park maintains more than 150 miles of trail exploring
  • Hawaii Volcano Village is wrapped in tropical rainforest and mists
  • Inland from Volcano is the towering summit of Mauna Kea, standing at 13,796 feet, making it the tallest mountain in Hawaii
  • Snow capped in the winter months from November to April, the summit dominates both the views and climate around the Big Island - there are even ski lifts here for snow boarding and downhill skiing
  • Several fine black sand beach locations can be found along the south coast of the Big Island ... created when volcanic lava spills into the sea causing instant cooling and shattering of the black lava to create a black sand beach
  • At the very southern tip is another unusual beach which is khaki green in colour. Green Sand Beach is carved into an extinct cinder cone and requires either 4WD access to within a mile of the beach or a 3 mile trek along the dirt road before descending a steep trail to the beach

"We stayed 3 nights at the Aloha Place. It was nice, clean and comfortable. The location for us was great (very close to the National Park and only about 25 miles out of Hilo and a few hours from Kona). I liked that they had things available for us to use, like beach towels, jackets for trips to Mauna Kea, and flashlights in our room for trips to the park to see the lava flows. And it has 24/7 internet access."

"The directions were very easy to follow, our key was right where it was supposed to be, and the room was clean. There were tons of amenities: chocolates, robes, flowers, hairdryer, TV, and internet access in the lounge area. Breakfast was served in the morning and the innkeeper was very pleasant. We had a great time there and would definitely stay again."
