What You Can Expect

Kilauea Volcano Bike Tour

Rainforest trail

Ride a bike from summit to sea down the roads of an active volcano. Nearly all of the roads and trails on the tour are downhill, level, and paved, and you’ll have a guide who’ll narrate the area’s mythology, geology and sights. 

All the necessary equipment is provided for this Kilauea volcano tour, as are beverages, lunch and a support van if you get tired of biking. After your start at the Visitors Center in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, you’ll ride past lush, tropical rainforests that house hidden, volcanic lava tubes — one of which you can even explore on foot and venture inside. You’ll pass steaming vents, massive craters and barren volcanic terrain, and, if Madame Pele (the volcano goddess) is in the right mood, there’s even the chance you could see lava spilling into the sea. 

The landscape at Kilauea volcano is unlike anywhere in Hawaii, and, since the tour’s support van is always nearby, you can bike for as long as your energy allows and still enjoy all the sights. Or, if you’d prefer to simply ride along and not use a bike at all, you can follow the group on the very same trails while comfortably seated inside. 

Your bike ride ends with a lunch with views of the ocean. On the way back to the start point, enjoy a trip to visit the Thurston Lava Tubes. Read the Itinerary for all major points of interest on this tour.

Amazing experience. The tour is something any level rider can do. We had people of all ages and fitness levels. Only 2 moderate inclines, and the rest was downhill. So much fun seeing the lava tube, rainforest, and volcano. our guide Mike was fantastic!

This was a highlight of our trip! The ride was mostly easy, with only a couple of hills. However, if you are not able to ride at least 10 miles, then you shouldn't do this tour. This is a great way to experience Volcano National Park!

My husband and I loved this tour!! Now, we had some people tell us just to go through volcano national park on our own and skip the cost of a tour, but the tour guides are what made this tour so awesome! For starters, everything was as described: We were picked up on time, were given sufficient instruction and yummy snacks and a delicious lunch. Second, our driver/ tour guide, Pretty, was awesome! Born and raised in Hilo, Hawai'i she shared so much about the local history and especially the cultural significance of many things we saw. We would never have learned a fraction of what we did had we gone and hiked the park on our own. Mike, our bike tour leader and tour guide was awesome as well! Learned so much from him again about the local history, folk tales/religious significance of many plants and sights we saw. On the way down to lunch by the ocean, Mike showed us several slides in the car about local wildlife, about the volcanoes and lava. It was really cool. This is one of my favorite things we did while on the big island. Highly recommend for a fun trip! Also, if we were not leaving town that night, Mike recommended some great spots to see the lava glow after the sun went down and also a great hiking trail down into the crater which looked really cool. Pretty also recommended going up to the observatory at the top of Mouna Loa at night to look at the stars and see the incredible view. We will definitely do these things next time we go. So much to do and see on the big island-we loved it and we loved this tour!!

My family and I had a wonderful time on this bike tour. My husband and I live in Oahu and we traveled to the Big Island with his parents who were visiting from out of state it was great for both those who live here and those visiting. Our guides, Nainoa and Pretty did a fantastic job!! The bike ride was paced well with excellent stops and snack/water breaks along the way, kept fun and informative by our guides, and got to see some wonderful sites of the volcano. It ended on a wonderful note, eating our lunches on previously formed lava patches overlooking the ocean.

Would highly recommend this trip activity to see the big island - if you do nothing else DO THIS! . We had Pretti and Michael as our hosts and learnt so much amazing stuff about the island that we wouldn't have known just exploring on our own. The bike ride was so well organised, with water and snacks for us on the journey down, then a cracking lunch at the bottom. There is one steep ish hill which was challenge in the heat we had - but not one batted an eye when I started walking!!! Cant thank Bike Volcano team enough!!!
