Kona Evening Volcano Guided Tour

Location: Kona

Make Kilauea Volcano and Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park your destination by staying past sunset for a night, volcano explorer tour. This is a fully narrated volcano tour, departing from Kona or Waikoloa/Kohola Resorts. The adventure begins at a world famous Kona coffee farm, where a deli-style lunch is served. Next, visit the famous Punalu'u black sand beach and look for giant sea turtles before arriving at the Park. Your trained, park ranger guide will reveal highlights of the Park, from active volcanic craters and steam vents to the historic Jaggar Museum. Enjoy dinner at Volcano Winery, plus a private vineyard and tea orchard tour paired with a wine tasting or complimentary glass of wine. Return to the Park and watch for current volcanic activity as the sun sets before returning to Kona.

During the tour you can expect moderate air temperatures at sea level with cooler temperatures at higher elevations on the drive from Kona; occasional rain showers; strenuous hike across uneven and steep, rocky terrain including black lava rock.

*Red molten lava may not be seen and cannot be guaranteed. Volcanic activity changes constantly and cannot be guaranteed.
