Overview
Now hiking out to the Active Lava Ocean Entry! Discover the lava flows, rain forest and beaches of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on a full-day tour with a knowledgeable guide. Hike out to both the active lava flow front and the ocean lava entry. See how lava has altered the landscape as you go off the beaten track to check out Halema'uma'u Crater in Kilauea Volcano and explore beaches along the Puna coast. Take in unspoiled rain forest, ocean and rugged cliffs along the gorgeous ‘Red Road’ loop. Look for lava flows and watch the sun set over Kilauea Volcano on a memorable tour from Hilo, Kona or Waikoloa.
What to Expect
Experience the most Kilauea Volcano has to offer! Explore the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park with an intimate size group and then travel down to the Puna Coast to view what the lava has done on the active side of Kilauea Volcano. Once you arrive at the park, an experienced guide will lead you on short leisurely hikes through lush rainforests alive with native birds, incredible foliage and a “walk through” lava tube. Explore hidden overlooks off the beaten path and witness the explosive power of Halema’uma’u Crater.

You will then travel down to the “Red Road” in the Puna district where the scenery is amazing as you weave through the rainforest and take in the jagged cliffs overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Walk out to the new black sand beach at Kaimu, which has forever been changed by the lava flows in the early 1990’s. Taking the road less traveled, you will witness firsthand the creation and devastation the lava has brought to this area over the last 50 years – villages destroyed and new land created. Depending on the volcanic activity at the time of the tour, we will try to locate “flow or glow” either at the coast or with a trip up to Halema’uma’u Crater. Experience the unique sights that most travelers never see on their own or with other tour companies!

Throughout the tour your guide will share with you history and geology of the area during the frequent stops along the way – an exciting and active way to spend the day discovering how lava has changed our land forever!
