Small group volcano tour – the glow show


The red glowing light coming from the Halema'uma'u overlook crater lava lake is about to become visible at twilight

Right after the sun is below the horizon and the soft glowing light in the sky caused from the refraction and scattering of the sun’s rays from the atmosphere appears, volcano tour guests and park visitors can witness the red reflections in the volcanic fumes leaving the lava lake. On a clear day, the first stars are also visible from that moment on. As it gets darker, the red glow will become more and more intense, even more so when there are more fumes emitted from the lava lake.

Since nobody can predict for how long this natural phenomenon will last (it started in 2008), we recommend to book tickets for the “glow show” soon.

Ask our guides for recommendations about the best flights, accommodations, island transportation and suggested itineraries for first time visitors as well as repeat guests.
