Kilauea Volcano eruption activity.

This is a very exciting time for Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park due to the current eruption conditions at Kīlauea volcano.

Please note that the public cannot currently view the fissure eruption happening between Pu'u Ō'ō and Nāpau craters despite what the media is reporting - this is a remote area of HVNP that is not open to the public for safety reasons.

HVNP has temporarily closed Chain of Craters Road, all east rift and coastal trails, and Kulanaokuaiki Campground for public safety. Park rangers are sharing the latest real-time videos, photos and information at Kīlauea Visitors Center and Jaggar Museum, much to the delight of visitors.

Right now, the best way to see magnificent views of the volcano is by air. Flight-seeing tours are able to fly over the eruption but must maintain a 1,500 foot elevation and stay 1 ½ miles away from the site.

The glow from the eruption, audible rock falls into Halema'uma'u Crater and other exciting and ever-changing conditions make a visit to HVNP - a World Heritage Site - well worth the trip and, as always, a "must-do" when visiting Hawai'i.
