The Land of Frozen Fire

<!--break--> <p>Head first to the small, off-the-beaten-path town of Pahoa with its inviting boardwalk. Nearby is Lava Tree State Park, a once lush rainforest that happened to be in the path of a lava flow. The trees burned from the inside out, leaving hollow stone skeletons. Now covered with moss, they make for an eerie panorama. </p> <br> <p>Visit Ahalanui’s volcanically heated warm springs. Along the way and during brief stops, view the striking scenery that results when lava meets the sea – cliffs, lava tubes, and blowholes. Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to see a blowhole spouting water high in the air. </p> <br> <p>The small fishing village of Kalapana and Kaimu the site of the original black sand beach were both destroyed by a 1990 lava flow. Take a walk on this “frozen fire” and get a look at the active volcanic vent in the distance. Chat with a survivor of the eruption and view a photo exhibit of the area you just walked through to see how it looked before buried in 1990. </p> <br> <strong> Note: </strong> Participants must be at least 8 years of age, able to walk short distances unaided and wear closed-toe shoes.

Left us wanting more
The tour guide was cute and knowledgeable. It was cool to see the "frozen fire" but the tour was just ok. The video about the tour made it seem more exciting. Other members of our family went to Volcanoes National Park and loved it...we wish we would have done that instead.

Just Ok
I would have to say that this was my least favorite excursion of the entire cruise. While the bus driver was very informative at the stops, I felt there were too many of them. The Rainbow Falls were pretty , seeing & understanding about the lava bed was interesting, but all in all it was just ok.
