    My boyfriend has been dying to go to Hawaii, probably for the surf but this is more my speed. This looks like a fun adventure for the day. Volcanoes are fascinating to me and to see one going off would be pretty epic

  2. Kids these days are lucky that traveling is much more convenient. They should definitely make the most of it instead of being indoors with their ipads and the whatnots. I sound like a grumpy old woman. Lol.

    This looks like a fun tour! I would love to do this too.

  3. This really reminds me of my trip to Lanzarote! When I was there we did a similar trip through the Lava tubes, was pretty awesome. I would LOVE to visit Hawaii.

    I never really like the smell around volcanoes but I do appreciate its magic powers of nature! I’d like to check these out

  5. The lava tube looks awesome! Thanks for the tip about the closed toed shoes. I really need to plan a trip back to Hawaii sometime as there is just so much to do and see.

    This is super interesting, I had no idea the volcanoes were so active in Hawaii. I would love to visit after reading this. It seems like a great place to explore.

    Ah how true is that! My husband works with youths and kids and he’s always telling me that they spend waaaaayy too much time on technology nowadays. I’m glad yours learned lots from these volcanoes! We’ll have to check these out when we go back to Hawaii one day.

  8. I was not aware that I could visit an active volcano. That too in Hawaii. I will definitely keep visiting active volcano’s on my to do list when I visit Hawaii.

      There is a lot to see in Hawaii. You can visit farms, too – chocolate, orchids, tea, coffee….wonderful opportunities. Thanks for stopping by!

    Really great way to enjoy with your kids. I wish to have seen an active volcano as a kid. I would definitely like to take my kid here.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Giving kids of travel really opens their eyes! You get to be a big kid while you show them, too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by.

    I work for a travel blogger and I’ve heard so much about this park. It looks so interesting and fun! It’s great that it is family-friendly too!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Yes, national parks are a great way to explore the beautiful country. It was extra fun to see it on a big national park birthday. Happy 100 years!

    How lovely! I haven’t been to and read something about Hawaii. What I know about it is, Hawaii has some beautiful beaches! Now I know they have volcanoes too. Seeing your pictures of the volcanoes, it seems very scary and hot. But still beautiful and interesting. Do you know that Indonesia has a lot of volcanoes too? You need to visit my country. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I would so love to visit Indonesia! It is on our list of places we want to visit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hawaii not only has beautiful beaches but they are all so different! Really interesting to see them all.

  12. Coming from New Zealand, where we have lots of volcanoes (most extinct but some who like to remind everyone of their presence) I’ve always been fascinated by volcanoes. We learnt a lot about them in school as the landscape in NZ is very volcanic. This sounds like a really awesome place to visit and a great educational opportunity for kids and adults alike.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      The people who have traveled to New Zealand always tell me it is the world’s most beautiful place. I would love to see it and will bring the kids!!

  13. Hawaii has always been one for the list and so has the volcanoes! I’ve always been amazed by them as a child… Since it’s still an active volcano, I wonder how close you can get and what would you do in an instance it erupts?!

    But it is honestly really awesome of you to bring your kids here.. Imagine all the experiences they’ll have! Travel and education – what more could you want? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • NatalieTanner says:

      It is a great combination! Who says education has to be boring??? ๐Ÿ™‚ The volcano is actively erupting and has been since 1938! You can see the lava at night…not a good idea to get too close though I think it is technically possible but involves a VERY difficult hike. The easiest way to see the lava glowing would be to take a helicopter flight over it at night!

    Totally agree with you that kids achieve a lot from spending more time outdoors, creates awareness what happening around them! We have visited few places where volcanoes had changed the whole landscap, but visiting an active volcano is our next must do in the list! This volcano tube looks so amazing!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      It was and was a highlight for the whole traveling group! Volcanoes are such a cool sight…. you can see the lava itself at night. Wouldn’t that be crazy awesome??

    […] Hawaii is the only state that gets bigger each year. The chain of Hawaiian islands have been created by a volcano and that volcano is still erupting! The eruptions, still ongoing after 30+ years, adds land mass to the Big Island every year – about 42 acres! See it erupting in the Hawaii Volcano National Park. […]
