Our regular cancellation policies remain in place.
Kilauea, one of the five volcanoes of the Big Island of Hawaii, has been erupting almost continuously since 1983, earning the title of most active volcano on Earth. Its activity typically consists of lava flows, partially molten rock that gently oozes out of a fissure in the ground and slowly moves downhill. The event that is happening now has played out many times in the last 35 years..and only affects an area of the Big Island called Puna which is located on the flanks of Mauna Loa and comprises. To give you a sense of scale, The land mass of Puna is less than 10% of the land mass of the Big Island, and the area of concern is contained in less than 25% of that. This eruption effects approximately 2.5% of the Big Island....which means that 97.5% of the Big Island is incredibly safe, unscathed, and ready for your enjoyment.
The territory of Hawaii increased by about 500 acres over the past 35 years -- the volcano created pristine new land and pushed the coastline forward. The best part is that this process is relatively safe to observe: lava flows can easily be outwalked, and they give out enough heat to keep even the most daring tourists at a secure distance.
