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.
