As we've learned on this vacation... the least costly things to do in Hawaii are absolutely the best experiences! Today was the BEST $10 we have spent! Rainforests, lava tunnels, steam vents, hiking down into the crater, exploring the formations and steaming cracks, and then hiking back up - an accomplishment but well worth the effort. It was an overcast day (our helicopter tour was cancelled) so we spent much more time in the VNP and enjoyed every second. I actually don't know how we would have made the trek back up if it wasn't for the overcast skies and the light mist in the air. It is not for elderly or those with a disability. Such an interesting adventure for any age and any member of the family. The rangers are top notch and so good at directing you to the exact right excursion for your skill set and interests.
This is a must see for any visitor to the Big Island!
