More about this activity


Kona Volcano Lava TubeHiking

After a stop at Mauna Kea Recreational Area, you’ll head into the heart of Volcano National Park. Here you will explore 2-3 miles of moderate hiking trails through Kilauea’s rugged volcanic landscape, and get a look at some of the park’s most well-known sites. During your hike, your guide will also provide a detailed look at how the latest eruption and seismic activity dramatically shaped the park, and what it looked like before it was forced to close in 2018.

Lava Tube

After spending a few hours exploring Kilauea, you will head off-road to one of Hawaii’s most unique lava tubes. This lava tube is known for its yellow and gold mats that line the cave walls, as well as huge ‘rooms’, and distinct features like an upside-down forest of roots that hang from the ceiling. Located on private property, the only way to access this exclusive lava tube is through this tour.

    I was expecting to learn about the lava flows and seeing some lava, but I didn’t expect to have such incredible views from high up on the mountain! We could see the ocean, and from that height, it was A LOT of ocean! We loved out active volcano tour!

    I learned quite a bit. I would give it 5 stars if I could have gotten up close and personal with lava. Gotta please my instagram audience. HAHA! J/K kinda.

    Our guide was so patient and had so many answers (even to my stupid questions). Thank you for the hike and tour. I want to see every island with you guys. Are you on all of the Hawaiian Islands? We’re going to Maui next.

    I learned a lot about your islands, and a lot about the Hawaiian Islands in general. It was a great way to start our trip, so we had abetter appreciation while exploring. I knew the names of a few plants and flowers and it made my trip better. Thank you!

    My knee doesn’t always like to listen to me when I attempt to walk, so this was a bit of a challenge for me. Really enjoyed learning about the islands, geology, history, culture and see the beautiful views. Just wish I was 5-10 years younger.
