Thurston Lava Tube, Hawaii 96778, USA

There aren’t many places where you can walk into the interior of a volcano, but it is an option in Hawaii. Located inside the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Thurston Lava Tube gives visitors a chance to stroll into a subterranean corridor that was created when lave bubbled up through this section of the Earth. Later, when it receded, the chamber was left behind, and now it is a popular attraction for those who want to delve beneath the surface and explore the geological formation for themselves.
