You’ll hike through a Natural Area Reserve forest where native plants and birds can be found. There’s also a visit to the Punalu’u black sand beach where giant sea turtles frequent. Once you arrive at the Volcanoes National Park, your Park Ranger guide will take you to the highlights of the Park. You’ll have the opportunity to see active volcanic craters, steam vents, the Historic Jaggar Museum, and more. As the sun sets you’ll want to keep an eye out for the glow of current volcanic activity, a sight you’ll never forget on your trip to Big Island, before the return trip to Kona. This tour is approximately 9 hours long.

Your Evening Volcano Explorer tour will start at the KapohoKine Adventures’ store in downtown Hilo. There you can stock up on Patagonia gear, Keen gear, Columbia gear, or start with an indoor climbing wall. Once you board the tour vehicle, we’ll be hitting the road. You’ll have a chance to see the black basalt lava flows in Kalapana, a village that once lay in the path of the advancing lava flow just a few years ago and was completely destroyed. Then you’ll be taken to the newest black sand beach and recent lava flows. This walk shows you how the lava engulfed everything in its path including the Kaimu Bay and an area that was once one of the best swimming beaches on Hawaii Island. Then it’s back on the bus which takes you (when possible) over the lava flows that overran the highway. You’ll also get to see the historical Painted Church, the first home in Hawaii of Saint Damien, which is now decommissioned. This church was actually moved TWICE by local villagers to protect it from advancing molten lava flows that threatened to destroy it. Finally you’ll make it the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see the highlights of the volcanic areas, active volcanic craters, steam vents, and see the Jaggar Museum. As the sun sets watch for the glow of volcanic activity before returning to Hilo. Dinner is included. This tour is approximately 6 hours.
