See Volcanoes National Park like never before with the certified nature guides from Hawaii Forest & Trail! Visit the Kilauea Crater, dramatically transformed by the recent lava flows to Fissure 8 and violent seismic activity in the area. This tour includes 2-3 miles of hiking around the park to explore on foot and get up close to the volcanic landscape. Your guide will explain what happened to the park and what it was like before it was forced to close in April 2018. The last part of your tour involves visiting a unique lava tube with bright yellow walls, found on private property that only Hawaii Forest & Trail has access to. This unique natural wonder is the perfect way to end your volcano tour on the Big Island!
Tour Highlights!
Visit one of Hawaii's largest lava tubes, with ceilings as high as 35 feet! You'll have exclusive access to this private cave known for its bright yellow and gold microbial mats living on and accenting the cave walls. This cave has many unique and notable features including its expansive rooms and an “upside down” forest of roots hanging from the cave ceiling.

The Menu:

  • Morning Snack: Granola bars, island style banana bread, fresh fruit, coffee, & tea.
  • Lunch: Sandwich choice of turkey, ham, tuna or veggie, chips, cookie, sodas and juice drinks. Gluten free options available.
