Epic Lava Surface Flow Hike
Hikes to the current surface flow lava
Each Hawaiian island boasts its own magical feel. They are all littered with their own unique geological amazement! You can see one incredible mountain waterfall on the Big Island and then realize there’s another awe-inspiring waterfall on Kauai! You have the famous waves of the North Shore on Oahu or the crazy scenic Road to Hana on Maui!
If you’re on the Big Island, go big atop the tallest mountain in the world to catch the Hawaii sunset above the clouds. We have traveled all over the Hawaiian islands for years and have developed unique life-changing adventure tours!
To get the most breathtaking views and ideal conditions for photography, your guides will meet you around 4am, at the crack of dawn. From Volcano Village, Mercedes sprinter vans take you to the bottom of the national park, where the hike starts. Here you begin an 8-10 mile, 6 hour hike through the park. Allow the islands to take your breath away, as you watch the sun rise over the boiling crater of Halema’uma’u or in the rough landscape of volcanic deserts.
Pass the volcanic rivers of the past 30 years and enjoy magnificent panoramas of the cliff lines and the palis. On the boiling shores of the Volcano National Park you will see traces of the 2005 40-acre bench collapse, the biggest one ever recorded. You will have opportunity to freely explore the wild vistas, while an expert guide maneuvers you to the most active regions, where you can catch sight of the current flow. After a morning filled with breathtaking views and geological wonders you will return to Volcano Village around 11am, just in time for lunch.
