I really enjoyed coming to see this active volcano. You can drive right up to the crater, so is accessible even for those who are less mobile than others. As it's an active volcano, it is releasing sulphur and other gasses, so you can only...More

Crazy cool lava flows and volcanic debris. The active volcano and crater is available for short periods of time in the park with an unreal view. Lots of local wildlife.
