Kona Volcano National Park Tour

An in-depth volcano experience on the Island of Hawaii by your National Park Certified Guide will share a mix of natural and cultural history about the island’s formation, illuminating the stories behind the ever-changing landscape of our island home.


What to Expect

The tour begins from one of our various pick up points in Kona, Waikoloa, and Kohala Coast resorts. From there we enjoy a scenic ride up the coastline through the quaint towns of Captain Cook, Naalehu, and Pahala. We arrive at the Volcano National Park to enjoy a day in nature.

Now the adventure begins! On this in-depth park experience, your interpretive guide will illuminate the historical events that changed the landscape of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We then enjoy 2-3 miles of hiking around the park’s dynamic terrain. We’ll also visit a large private lava tube known for its bright yellow and gold microbial mats living on the cave walls. This lava tube is only accessible to our guests.

And of course the grande finale! We stay after dark to see the eruption deep inside Halemaumau Crater; catch glimpses of lava and see the night’s sky light up with Pele’s orange and red glow
