Description:
Volcano Lava Hike

Seeing the lava up close and personal on your volcano lava hike will leave an impression on you that you’ll never forget. This guided volcano lava hike takes you on an adventure to the most current active eruption site on Kilauea volcano. Look for lava outbreaks, ocean entry or skylights on this once in a lifetime memorable experience that few rarely get to witness. Learn about the legendary Madam Pele and the nature and science behind Kilauea volcano. Volcano Lava Hike Tour Highlights Include:

  • See Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes on your drive across Saddle Road into Hilo. Enjoy a delicious Lunch Buffet with many entree, vegetable and fresh fruit choices to satisfy a vegetarian or omnivore at the Sky Garden Restaurant inside the Imiloa Astronomy Center.
  • Adventure to Kilauea Volcano just outside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our company has preferred parking inside the county gates that save you at least 5 miles of hiking versus doing it on your own. Your tour guide is certified ranger trained who will lead you on a several mile hike to the current active eruption. This tour is fully narrated sharing the geology, science and cultural awareness with myth and legend stories that tie in the history of past eruptions in the area.
  • After witnessing the most memorable experience of red hot lava, your guide will drive you to Uncle Robert’s Awa Club and Farmers Market for a famous Wednesday night social gathering for tasty food, fresh produce, live music entertainment and farmers market shopping. It’s a lively market, with wonderful sound, sight and smell – and lots of friendly aloha spirit (Wednesday only).
  • PLEASE NOTE: You will be walking at least 4.5 miles round trip (about 1 hour each way). This is a moderate to difficult tour rating with most of the walking on a gravel road plus hikes across the rough and uneven black lava. The return hike can possibly be in the dark. We do provide a hiking backpack geared-up with a head lamp or flashlight, water and rain poncho. The viewing of molten lava and volcanic activity may not be seen and cannot be guaranteed on any tour due to nature.

Frequently Asked Questions
As long as lava is making its path down to the ocean, we will have a good chance to see molten lava. However, red flowing lava cannot be guaranteed. We’ll always attune your experience to get the most out of the current eruption of Kilauea and we will do our best to get you to the closest viewing area providing it is safe and legal.

H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. When you select your hotel in the booking page, you will see the pickup location and directions. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!
