This site contains two of the most active volcanoes in the world, Mauna Loa (4,170 m high) and Kilauea (1,250 m high), both of which tower over the Pacific Ocean.

Volcanic eruptions have created a constantly changing landscape, and the lava flows reveal surprising geological formations.

Rare birds and endemic species can be found there, as well as forests of giant ferns.
