In the Volcanoes National Park, you get to see:
Thurston Lava Tube -- This 400 year old lava tube is 600 feet long with ceilings between 10 and 30 feet. The trail through the tube is lit and a short stair at the end takes you back up to the surface.
Jagger Museum -- This museum not only has a great view of the caldera floor and the Halema'uma'u crater (with wisps of steam coming up) but it also has tons of great Kilauea Volcano and volcanology information and history. There are large murals and depictions of the ancient Hawaiians dealings with the volcano, pictures of volcanologists gathering lava samples, maps of the climates of the Big Island and a lot more.
Lava Tree State Park -- In this park you’ll find many examples of lava trees. What’s a lava tree, you ask? It’s the remnant of the tree that was once surrounded by lava. The moisture of the tree kept the lava from burning the tree and the lava creates a mold around the tree trunk.
Kilauea Iki Crater -- Kilauea Iki had been inactive for nearly a century when it erupted in 1959 for 36 days. Imagine the lava shooting up more than 1,900 feet which is four times the height of the crater walls. To learn more about the history of Kilauea Iki and see some fascinating photos taken during the eruption at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
Before the tour ends, visit the Rainbow Falls and view the sun reflections on the water creating beautiful rainbows. There are many exotic blooms like anthurium and orchids at the local nursery as well.
