The volcanoes on the Big Island and Maui are both powerful forces of nature. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island protects some of the most unique geological, biological, and cultural landscapes in the world. Extending from sea level to the summit of Mauna Loa at 13,677 feet, the park encompasses the summits of two of the world's most active volcanoes - Kīlauea and Mauna Loa.
The main feature of Haleakala National Park on Maui is the Haleakala Volcano, which rises 10,000 ft above sea level and has a spectacular crater at the summit. Sunrises here are world-class and one of the most popular of all Maui activities. Explore one or both of these volcanoes with certified eco-tourism guides and learn about the unique geology and cultural significants of these sacred volcanoes.
