Big Island Pictures - Volcano National Park
Big Island Pictures - Volcano National Park - was established in 1916, which is the results of millions of years of volcanism and evolution - from the sea and clothed it with complex unique ecosystems and a distinct human culture. The park encompasses diverse environments that range from sea level to the summit of the earth's most massive volcano, Mauna Loa at almost 14,000-feet. Kīlauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, offers scientists insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and visitors' views of dramatic volcanic landscapes. The park includes over 500 miČ of land. The best way to have a close look at the lava flow is either joining a private local guide or booking a helicopter flight, which take off from Hilo or near Waikoloa Beach Resort.
