An in-depth volcano exploration
Get your hike on with one of our certified park service guides on our Kilauea Hike ‘n Glow tour. This is a specialized tour designed for adventurous guests looking to get off the beaten path and head off to unique areas of the Park not normally visited on organized tours. Start at our KapohoKine Adventures Store in Hilo to grab any last minute gear before heading off to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Here you will discover what makes this unique place a UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Preserve.
Start with a visit to the Kilauea Visitor’s Center and a picnic-style lunch. Visit the Jaggar Museum, and then on to the Thurston Lava Tube. Hike down into the Kilauea Iki crater through the rainforest and across the still-steaming crater floor. This 4-mile hike culminates in a walk through the Thurston Lava Tube. Next, we will visit the famous Volcano House. The Volcano House is a landmark which inspired the likes of Mark Twain and Jack London. Enjoy a delicious dinner with Kilauea Volcano safely erupting in the distance through the picture windows. End your adventure with a stop at the Halemaʻumaʻu Crater to view the glow up close before returning to Hilo.
