Visiting Kilauea Volcano in 1847

This month in history — November 1847 — the Polynesian described a three-day journey to Kilauea Volcano’s summit, which meant a chilly, voggy thirty-mile horseback ride and an overnight stay through camping or living in a grass hut.

With other travelers, an editor of the Polynesian made the three-week trip: sailing from Honolulu, climbing up and down Kilauea, and sailing home for $50.

Read more about his journey in “A Trip to the Crater of Kilauea.”
