Overview

Explore three volcanic craters during one great trip on this 11.5-hour excursion on the Big Island. Travel aboard a high-end Mercedes van as you trek to the still-steaming Mauna Ulu, enjoy an amazing hike across Kilauea Iki crater and discover the summit of Kilauea Caldera. All entrance fees, plus a deli-style lunch and and local-style dinner are included.
  • Visit 3 volcanic craters in a single trip during this Big Island hiking excursion
  • Trek to the steaming crater mouth of Mauna Ulu
  • Hike the ridge above Kilauea Iki and then travel across the steam plumes of the crater floor
  • Walk to the 4,000-foot (1,240-meter) summit of Kilauea and view Halema'uma'u Crater
  • Included deli-style picnic lunch and dinner at a local restaurant
  • Great way to get an up-close look at the Big Island's volcanoes
Receive a morning pickup from your Waikaloa or Kona hotel from a luxurious high-ceiling Mercedes van. Before proceeding on your first volcanic adventure, you’ll fuel up with an early deli-style lunch served along the Big Island’s historic Saddle Road.

Enjoy your first hike of the day at Mauna Ulu, spending 2.5 hours trekking to visit the steaming crater mouth of this volcanic site. Your well-trained guide will ensure your hike through this active volcanic area goes off safely and smoothly. Depending on the weather on the day of your visit, you might even be able to see the ongoing eruption happening at nearby Pu’u O’o.

Proceed to your next hike, a 2-hour round trip that follows a ridge before traversing the crater floor of Kilauea Iki. As you travel along the ridge, you’ll observe the unique flora and fauna of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park ecosystem, including the area’s native Ohia trees. Once you arrive down on the crater floor, marvel at the amazing scenery, which includes surreal lava formations and smoky steam plumes.

Take a brief hike through a lava tube before continuing to the 4,000-foot (1,240-meter) summit of Kilauea itself. This relatively easy walk will bring you into view of Halema'uma'u Crater, where you can admire the glowing red of the lava that lies just below the surface. Finish the day with dinner at a local-style eatery before getting dropped off at your hotel.

Everything would have changed now due to the recent volcano activity. But... This tour was really really great. We saw so much in one day, it was unbelievable how much ground we covered. Note: You must be physically able to do a bit of hiking ! Our guide took the time to explain alot to us as we were hiking worth the money for sure!

This tour was an amazing experience. Our guide was laid back, knowledgeable and funny. It was impressive when we stopped at the base of Mauna Ulu to give a prayer of thanks before climbing to the summit. We did this tour before the current eruption began to change things, so parts of what we saw are now changed forever. We were so fortunate to have a guide who knew all the little ins and outs of where to go and who to talk with. We stopped to pick fresh wild growing fruits that none of us had ever seen or tasted. He took us to the Southern most Bakery in the US for lunch and it was just fantastic. We even stopped briefly to see the black sand beach and as if on que there was a sea turtle there. We look forward to retuning to The Big Island and we hope to be able to use him again. Things will be much different now and we are excited to experience it all. Thank you and mahalo.

Michael Nelson, our Volcano adventure guide from Hawaii Adventures Now!, was extremely knowledgeable of Volcano National Park. We would never have hiked to some of the remote areas in the park without the guidance of an experienced guide. Michael's knowledge of volcanoes, the fauna in the area and formation of the various geographic features was extensive and he readily shared his vast knowledge and enthusiasm. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate for the night hike and our view of the volcano's glow was very limited. But, the hike was one of the highlights of our trip.

Mike was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He was extremely kind, knowledgeable and friendly!! The tour was lengthy but not too intense. There were times when I was pushed a bit physically but nothing that I couldn't handle - even at 54 years of age.

Mike knew so much about Hawaii and had great stories to share!!

Our group was fun because we all liked to talk.

If you like a little physical challenge and enjoy learning more about the history and culture of Hawaii, this is the tour for you. This tour was the highlight of our trip!!
