How to Explore the Big Island's Volcanoes
A big draw for travelers to the Big Island of Hawaii is exploring the volcanoes: A trip to Volcanoes National Park and Kilauea’s crater is unforgettable. The Big Island is the most recent expression of a volcanic hot spot under the earth's crust. Hiking up Mauna Loa and stargazing from Mauna Kea are also memorable experiences for the intrepid who are interested in exploring the less active volcanoes.

Hawaiian Food Truck

Large arrow left

Why I was so surprised to find a food truck in the village of Volcano outside of Volcano National Park, I'm not sure. All I know is that it was one of the many culinary surprises on the Big Island. This truck was packed with all kinds of wonderful things, and almost all of it was healthy too. If you can find it, and I have no way of telling you where they will be parked, ask for the special drink they mix up daily, I think it has ginger it in, but they'll know what you mean. The company is called Higher Taste Vegetarian Cafe, and this truck was parked outside of the Rainforest Gallery at Niaulani near Volcano Village. That's the best I can do, but then again, finding the truck is half the fun!
