Kilauea Special (7 days)
For a tour like this, there is no fixed schedule. Instead, the program will be adjusted according to volcanic activity, weather conditions and preferences of the group. Our aim will be to observe the ongoing activity from close up if possible and weather conditions permitting. A rough schedule could look like this:
Arrival in Hilo, pick up from the airport and transfer to the hotel (seaside of Hilo Bay). If your arrival leaves time, we can drive to the Kilauea volcano for a first impression.
Today, we explore the summit of Kilauea volcano and its some of its numerous geologic highlights: the huge caldera with the inner pit crater Halema'uma'u - home of Pele, sacred to Hawaiians -, fumaroles, steam vents, faults, lava tubes, historic lava flows. If conditions permit, we will go and visit the active lava flows at the sea entry in the evening.
In the morning, we visit what is the largest known continuous lava tube in the world. Once, a mighty river of lava was flowing here for over 20 miles down from the summit of Kilauea to the sea. Today, it is a pristine lava tube with accessible sections full of volcanic wonders, such as streamlined current eddies once formed by the flowing lava inside. We'll spend about 3-4 hours inside the lava tube to explore some of them. If conditions permit, we hike out to areas in the coastal lava flow field where there is interesting volcanic activity, e.g. active pahoehoe flows, lava pouring into the sea etc.
Two full days to spend on and around Kilauea: lava viewing excursions by land and sea, exploring features of the rift zones, the active craters and lava lake(s) of Kilauea volcano, options to take helicopter or boat tours to see lava flowing into the sea.
Departure (transfer to Hilo airport) or own extension program.
