KapohoKine Adventures - Elite Volcano Hike (from Kona)

Hike across ancient lava fields of Kilauea volcano dating back to 1881. Your adventure begins with a drive from the Kona side of the island and leads across Saddle Road, where you'll enjoy views of two of the tallest and most massive volcanoes on Earth, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. Your National Park Service certified tour guide will share fascinating facts about the island's volcanology and geology of this area.

The first stop is Kaumana Caves, part of the lava tube system that brought lava as close as 1.5 miles from downtown Hilo in 1881. Take a peek inside the dramatic cathedral-like space, before taking a quick drive through quaint Hilo town where you’ll drive along the historic waterfront before stopping at the KapohoKine Adventures store to pick up supplies.

The tour then continues on to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you’ll see the destruction done by the 2018 eruption. After a picnic lunch, you’ll head off along the Halema'uma'u trail to start your crater hike of approximately 3 miles. The trail leads down to the caldera floor that changed drastically during the 2018 eruption.

After the hike, your guide will take you to some of the other amazing locations Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has to offer, including the lava flow of Mauna Ulu, where you’ll look for Pele’s tears and lava trees. You’ll also see the older Nahuku lava tube hidden in the rainforest. Your adventure ends with a delicious dinner at one of the locals’ favorite restaurants in Volcano Village.
