Lava Flow at Kilauea
Things to do in
The lava is no longer flowing, it cannot be viewed at this time
One of the five volcanoes which together comprise the Big Island of Hawaii, Kilauea had been in a near-constant state of eruption for 35 years, right up to September of 2018 and following a sort of crescendo in terms of eruptions earlier in that same year.
In December of 2018, following more than 90 days of inactivity, the volcano was declared to be dormant and the once-flowing rivulets of lava which attracted tourists from all over the world ceased to flow. Good news for local residents, less so for those hoping to catch a glimpse of the incredible phenomena.
