What You Can Expect

Big Island Hawaii Volcano Adventure

Big Island Hawaii Volcano Adventure

Ever since it began erupting in 1983, Kilauea has been one of the most world’s most active and fiery lava flows. On this full-day Big Island volcano adventure, you’ll not only experience the volcanic formations Kilauea has left behind, but also potentially witness the lava as Earth is created before your eyes.

The tour begins in downtown Hilo by historic Banyan Drive, where you’ll next travel to either a macadamia nut or tropical orchid farm. Upon entering Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, trek through the rainforest to the Thurston Lava Tube that was formed by a river of magma, and tour this well-lit tube to walk where magma once flowed. While the lava tube area is green and lush, the landscape is rockier up near the rim of Haleama’uma’u Crater, where sulfurous steam rises up from the pit and its lava lake far down below.

It’s in this area you’ll tour Jaggar Museum and learn about Kilauea’s past. If current safety conditions permit, you’ll have the chance to seek out lava as it actively flows from the Earth.
