Most travelers come to this area to visit the breathtaking Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. At its heart, are the Kīlauea and Mauna Loa active volcanoes. Guests can take the Crater Rim Drive, which passes steam vents and Sulphur banks. The park's Jaggar Museum features volcanology exhibits, and a viewpoint overlooking Halema'uma'u Crater. As well as sightseeing, many other fun activities are on offer in the park. Visitors can hike, bike, and spot local wildlife, including fascinating birds, carnivorous caterpillars, the largest dragonfly in the United States, endangered sea turtles, and bats. Guests who wish to see the volcano, in all its majesty, from above, will be able to take a scenic helicopter flight from nearby Hilo.
Keen golfers will find a course just 10 minutes from the property, at the Volcano Golf and Country Club. This 18-hole course is one of the most unusual in the world, as it sits on the rim of the active Kilauea volcanic crater. It is situated 4,000 feet above the sea, with sweeping vistas of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, which are both snow-capped in the winter.
In the village of Volcano, there are several fun things to do. This region is the orchid capital of the world, and a short drive from the property, glampers will come to the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens. Guests can stop in and admire the many beautiful tropical orchids and can take incredible pictures of this photogenic flower. Also within easy reach of the cottage is the Volcano Winery, the most southern winery in the United States, which specializes in creating tropical blends. This is a good place for glampers to pick up an unusual souvenir. Every Sunday, Volcano Village plays host to a superb farmer's market, which is a social event, as well as a place to find fresh flowers, fruits, herbs, vegetables, locally-made food, baked goods, and more. Other markets in the area include Ka'u, to the west, and Market @ the Mill, between Volcano and Hilo.
