Hawaii Adventures Now - Extreme Lava Flow Hiking Tour

This is a charter tour option for up to 12 guests.

Hawaii Adventures Now offers a fully guided hike to see the entry of lava into the ocean on this Extreme Lava Hike to Ocean Entry tour! Not for the faint of heart, this hiking tour includes a trek that is 4.5 miles in and 4.5 miles out, but is the best chance at seeing lava flowing and breakouts from the Pu'u O'o vent.

Enjoy the ride from the Kona side of the island over to the Hilo side! Ride along Saddle Road into Hilo for a brief tour of the town and stop at the famous Rainbow Falls and Big Island Candies factory. Enjoy cookie and Kona coffee samples before heading to Pahoa, a town where lava threatened their existence in 2014. See Kaimu, a black sand beach that was covered by lava eruption.

Hike from the Kalapana trailhead out to see the active lava flow. This is not an easy hiking area, but the resulting views of the end location are beautiful! Any recent lava entering the ocean provides steam shows and sometimes visible flowing lava. Hike up to the cliff and onto the lava fields for a picnic-style dinner, photos and any possible lava breakout moments before heading back to the van for the return trip to Kona.

Tour Highlights:

  • Views of Saddle Road
  • Brief tour of Hilo town, visit to Rainbow Falls and Big Island Candies
