Overview

See the Big Island’s lava flows on a 11-hour extreme hiking tour from Kona and Waikoloa. Drive along Saddle Road and see the Rainbow Falls, Hilo, Pahoa lava flows, and Kaimu beach. Then, make a 5-mile circuit hike to the Pu'u O'o lava fields, with the chance to view liquid-red lava streams. Your tour includes a challenging 10 miles (16 kilometres) of hiking, dinner on Pu'u O'o’s lava or at a restaurant, plus round-trip transportation.
  • 11-hour extreme lava hiking tour from Kona and Waikoloa
  • Hike to the lava fields of Pu'u O'o vent on Kilaueau volcano
  • Watch for flowing lava streams and see lava entering the ocean
  • Visit Kaimu beach, Rainbow Falls, and the Big Island Candies factory
  • Picnic-style dinner on Pu'u O's lava fields or a restaurant dinner, depending on weather
  • Includes about 10 miles of hiking, much over challenging terrain
  • Small group of 11 or fewer, with round-trip transport by luxury minivan
After pickup at your Kona or Waikoloa hotel, meet your guide and group of no more than 11, and venture into the Big Island countryside by Mercedes Benz luxury minivan.

Admire the scenery and hear about Hawaii’s history from your guide as you climb to a height of 6,500 feet (2,000 meters). Take a restroom stop at Mauna Kea County Park midway up the Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes, and trace the famous Saddle Road to Hilo, set on the eastern coast.

After a brief tour of Hilo town, visit Rainbow Falls, home to an 80-foot (24-meter) tropical waterfall crashing into a turquoise pool. Then, stop at the Big Island Candies factory, home to Hawaii’s best-known cookie producers, and sample some of the sweet treats and aromatic Kona coffee made here.

Continue to Pahoa to view the slow-moving lava that is inching ever nearer to the town, and walk to Kaimu, where the original black sand beach was covered by lava in an 1990 eruption.

Walk on the solidified lava beach, and then begin your main, 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) hike at Kalapana to see the active lava spewing from the Pu'u O'o vent on the south eastern flanks of the Kilaueau volcano.

Trek along a gravel road past the ocean and town of Kalapana, devastated by the 1990 eruption, navigating both level and challenging terrain. See the billowing steam where lava pours into the sea, and with luck, view some streams of liquid, glowing-red lava.

Hike onto the cliffs (pali) and lava fields, and depending on the weather, either savor an outdoor picnic-style meal as you absorb the otherworldly scenery, or visit a local restaurant for dinner.

Watch for other lava breakouts before hiking back to your minivan and finishing with a hotel drop-off.
