Hawaii Forest & Trail - Hidden Craters Hike

Venture onto private land behind three locked gates to explore the upper slopes of Kona’s very own volcano – Hualalai. This journey provides up close access to the site of multiple volcanic eruptions from the 1800s, all within a short distance. 

Along the tour, we’ll see a 200-year-old lava flow, spatter cones, fissures and collapsed pits. We'll also descend via earthen steps with a rope to assist into a lava tube.

Tour Highlights:

  • Exclusive private access onto Hualalai volcano and into a native forest
  • 3-4 mile hike through untouched cloud forest with incredible views of the Kona coast
  • Stand on the edge of precipitous volcanic craters that plunge deep into the earth below
  • Climb through a segment of a lava tube

Tour Inclusions:

  • Trail bar snack and water refills (please bring your own reusable bottle)
  • Walking sticks, day packs and rain jackets provided
