HIKE as close as safely possible, when it's possible! Lava flows are not accessible every day due to the quickly-changing eruption, but when they are, we can get you there & back for the best chance to see red, active lava close-up & safely!
If there's no lava, we hike a 10mi/16km round-trip offering the closest legal sunset view of the active Pu‘u ‘O‘o vent on an epic 8-hr tour. (Too far? Choose the National Park or Kalapana & Kapoho instead, with LAVA PRIORITY option when possible to include the lava hike within your specified limits, or see lava from a distance if it's too far.)
Current status: Lava flows ARE ACCESSIBLE as of March 2013 via a 6mi/11km (~4 hr + viewing time) round-trip hike over uneven terrain.
Tag 1: The Lava Proximity Hike
HIKE as close as safely possible, when it's possible! At present, this hike requires 7mi / 12km / 4-5 hrs walk at sea-level over uneven terrain crossing recent & historic lava flows and islands of native vegetation, allowing ~2 hrs at the site of activity on an 8-hr tour leaving from Hilo or Volcano (or 6-hr meeting in Kalapana). This itinerary can be combined with our other tour offerings and customized to your preferences, please enquire!
The tour starts and ends on Big Island, ideally in Hilo or Volcano. Pick-up and transfers to and from Kona can be arranged, but the guided transfer time counts towards the time of the tour.
