Volcano Village is a small, quaint town located 28 miles from the city of Hilo, on Hawaii Island. Hawaii Island is nicknamed the Big Island for a reason, it’s HUGE! As a matter of fact, Hawaii Island can fit all the other main Hawaiian Islands inside of it. Staying in one location and then adventuring to popular sights, can be daunting and tiresome. With very little public transportation, it’s best to rent a car while visiting the Big Island.

Volcano Village is a top destination for travelers with it being located only one mile from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Rising nearly 4,000ft above the sea level, Volcano Village offers travelers a chance to experience a native Hawaiian rain forest, active volcanic eruptions, and cooler climates. Since the town of Volcano Village is better situated for travelers wanting a quiet and relaxing stay there’s no night life. However, with that said there are a few convenient stores, restaurants, a local farmers market, and other attractions.
Even more, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is comparable in size to the Island of Oahu. It can take days to explore its’ treasures. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park encompasses the majority of the south, east side of the island, all the way from the coast to the summit of Mauna Loa. When visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park it is best to prepare for many climates. The coast can be hot, dry, and offer little to no shade. Meanwhile, near the summit of Kilauea, one can expect cooler temperatures and rain. We highly recommend our guests to bring warmer clothes, such as, pants and a light jacket or fleece.
