Plunge from rainforest to caldera and see Hawaii’s famously explosive national park three different ways. What you see in your mind’s eye is reality at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where two of the world’s most active volcanoes—Kilauea and Mauna Loa—spew Day-Glo orange rivers of molten rock that cool into bizarre shapes in an ever shifting landscape. Intrepid hikers can wander into eruptions in real time in three unique ways. As you curve around the Makaopuhi Crater, ferns and rosy ohelo berries brighten the landscape. Backtrack after watching the steam show at fuming Pu‘u ‘O‘o vent at the Napau Crater overlook.
