Witness the epic march of molten lava as it journeys from the mountains to the sea. On this Big Island volcano adventure, you'll journey through Hawaii's incredible range of ecosystems and climate zones before experiencing first-hand the phenomena that makes it possible - an erupting volcano. The excursion begins as you travel between two of the world's largest mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. 

The region between these volcanoes is locally known as the Saddle and is home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the world. After a brief stop for lunch at Mauna State Park, we continue east towards Hilo. Before the final descent into Hawaii's second largest town, you'll stop to explore Kaumana Cave. This lava tube that once carried molten rock from Mauna Loa's upper rift zones to the ocean now provides for an excellent subterranean adventure.

Leaving Mauna Loa behind, we'll ascend to the summit of Kilauea inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Your professional guide will lead you through the must-see spots and hidden gems of this World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Preserve. As conditions change daily, your experience will be tailored to suit the current eruptive events. 

The summit caldera, steam vents, cinder fields and native rainforests are all on the "must see" list. After exploring the natural wonders of the park, we'll head to Kalapana to witness the incredible power of lava as it enters the ocean at sunset. Also included in the evening's itinerary is a delicious sit-down dinner in the heart of Pahoa, a historic town that has maintained the rustic ambiance of an old plantation village.

A great tour. It is long but it was interesting the entire day. This interest was enhanced greatly by Justin. He was an excellent tour guide and was completely professional all day.

First class tour in every respect!
Hawaii Forest and Trail was fantastic to deal with. Lunch and supper included in the tour were both excellent.
Johnny was our guide - request him if you have the option. He is incredibly passionate about volcanos, and you will have an amazing day with him!
