About Volcano Village

Like everywhere in the Hawaiian chain, the force of lava created the foundation for Volcano Village on the southern-most Big Island, right at the mouth of what humans would later call the 400-acre Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Civilization's been here nearly two centuries now. Many buildings have been lost. Some remain.

Fortunately, the force of nature and time kept filling in all the spaces afterward with a verdant tropical forest awash in hapu'u ferns and the vibrant red lehua blossoms of the Ohia trees. This has culminated thus far, into what we have today: one of the most storied views on Earth.

Volcano (elevation: 3,750 feet) was founded for farming and hunting many generations ago by locals, but enjoyed tourism and lodging booms in the mid-1800s and later in the 1920s. It's only grown to accommodate more and more people as word has spread about the views to be had here, in every direction.

The 2,500 locals can often be differentiated by whether they have cameras around their necks. Even the very young seem to know it's hard to take a bad photo when you're walking down a garden trail in what looks like an episode of Gilligan's Island, only tonier and more volcanic.

It's also a place to touch the heartbeat of the globe and witness its force. Underfoot is a rumbling cauldron that's undeniable. Follow Crater Rim Drive to pass through the village and its storied Volcano House resort, founded in 1846, but also to see some startling views of what lava does to civilization. Stop in at the Jagger Museum to analyze the geology of the situation.

Or look upward. Mts. Pu'u and Halema'uma'u are both active volcanoes that dominate the view here. From those spewing peaks flow molten earth toward the cooling Pacific. Daredevil photographers and tourists like to get as close to the gaseous lava plains as possible, gawking at the Halema'uma'u Crater overlooking Mt. Kilauea. Most stick with the county viewing area in Kalapana, though, on the southeastern side of the lava flow, right there, snug and secure along the mighty Pacific Ocean, in the path of volcanoes.
