Receive a mid-day pickup from your hotel, transferring to a private location in the island’s Puna District. Start your lava adventure by tucking into an included picnic-style deli meal accompanied by your choice of beverage. Once you’re done with the meal, your volcano hunting begins.
Drive as close as possible to Kilauea’s most recent active eruptions, stopping to continue on foot for a closer look. The sun will soon set behind the horizon, transforming the landscape with an eerie glow in the gathering darkness. You’ll also hear the sound of the eruption in progress, listening for the hiss and crackle of this liquid rock as it oozes toward the ocean. As you walk, your guide will help explain the volcanic process that created the Hawaiian Islands, adding a new layer of insight to your adventure. At the end of your nocturnal lava adventure, return back to the car for a transfer back to your hotel.
Please note: Guests should wear sturdy closed toe shoes. Slippers, sandals and flip-flops will not be accepted. A light jacket, hat, long pants, and sunglasses are all highly recommended. Though we do our best to find molten lava on every outing, the constantly changing nature of volcanic eruptions means there is no guarantee of a sighting.
