Hawaii Volcanoes National Park’s Thurston Lava Tube Just Reopened And We Can’t Wait To Visit

With more than 323,000 acres to explore, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the state’s largest national park — and it’s still growing! The park is also home to Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the world’s most massive subaerial volcano, and several stunning geological gems just waiting to be explored. There were a lot of natural wonders that were closed off after the eruption of Kilauea in 2018 but after a months-long closure, one of our favorite spots has recently reopened and we absolutely can’t wait to visit. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Whether you visited the Thurston Lava Tube before the 2018 Kilauea eruption or not, you’ll want to visit now. The landscape of this breathtaking national park has changed drastically over the last two years and it sure is fascinating to see.
