Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park: Google Virtual Tour


Welcome back to National Parks & other public lands with T! Google Arts and Culture has five interactive virtual National Park tours to explore while you are sheltering in place, including Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This footage looks to have been produced before the 2018 eruption which closed off certain areas of the park and so is the only way to experience it.  Click here to access the tour

  1. Several years we were there and took helicopter tour over erupting volcano. Interesting to see molten lava flowing through existing tubes. They called the openings in the tubes skylights. Was great.

  2. My husband is Director of one of the Observatories on Mauna Kea. He takes his relationship with the Island, the mountain and the national park very seriously.

      1. No. He’s actually based in Cambridge MA. The control room is actually here …. clever stuff! But he does visit at least a week every 6. Right now, operations are closed down, of course – I’m guessing the mountain is enjoying the peace 😉

      2. Oh he does. When on the island he will go up to the observatory daily. He doesn’t have difficulty with altitude. That is such a strange phenomena – there is no way of knowing how a person will cope til they do it – age, physiology, fitness have nothing to do with it. And sometimes a person is fine for years and then has a bad experience which might form a pattern or might not. There has to be a reason but no-one seems to know what it is! Another great example of how much we, as a species don’t know 😉

      3. Oh he does! When on the island he goes up to the observatory every day. Altitude and the random nature of who it effects is a great example of how little we humans actually know 😉
