Hawaii and Big Island Bike Tours
Bike tours on Hawaii, the Big Island are one of the most personalized ways to visit the active volcanoes.
Seeing the Big Island on a bike is truly one of the best ways to do it. The Big Island is full of sporty, outdoor types. Have you ever heard of the Kona Ironman Triathlon? Now we're talking a bike ride! There is just so much to see on the Big Island and viewing it on a bike gives you so much more of a sensual feast then enclosed in an automobile, a bus or a van. This is no-more evident than on the bike tours we have that tour through the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The rainforests, lava flows, lava tubes and often molten lava just a few feet from view make these bike tours some of the most exotic to be experienced anywhere in the world and biking the volcanoes with a tour is much more convenient than arranging for a bike rental.

The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is by far the single best location to be toured by bicycle on the Big Island. The tour companies will pick you up in a van and bring you up to where all the action is. Viewing this portion of Hawaii from the vantage point of a bike is a slow and pleasurable experience. You won't miss a thing as your Hawaii bike ride will glide you through the sights, sounds and smells of a truly active volcano. If you choose not to ride the bike at all times, don't worry, you can spend time in the chase van for as long as you'd like. Even non-bike riders can enjoy the Hawaii bike tour in this way and be able to enjoy the bicycle experience with the rest of their family who would choose to ride bikes. One further thought is that you should be aware that these Hawaii bike rides to the volcano are generally on flat ground or downhill since they start at the highest part of the bike tour at the beginning.
Also, don't think of these bike tours simply as a bike ride because there are many areas you will be encouraged to get off your bike and do some hiking into the lava interior of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You'll most likely have an opportunity to walk through a huge extinct lava tube and often depending upon the flows of the lava when you arrive may also be able to walk over close to some of the slow moving lava coming from the summit.
These Hawaii bike tours are some of the richest experiences you are likely to have on your Big Island holiday and are worth their weight in adventure.
