Join Bike Volcano for an amazing bicycle adventure of Kilauea Volcano. Witness first hand the new, striking, and dramatic changes to Halemaumau Crater that transpired after the 4 month Summit Crater eruption. During this exhilarating guided bicycle tour you will see the best highlights of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park while biking on paved roads with our Professional Interpretive Guide.

The exciting day begins at the summit of Kilauea, which is currently now doubled in size and is nothing short of awe striking. Here you will get a chance to feel the heat of the volcano as you stand next to the steam vents.

The adventure continues as we bike through a lush native Hawaiian rain forest section of the Summit. See ancient native tree ferns as you’re serenaded by native Hawaiian birds on your way to our next stop, Kilauea Iki Crater Overlook. Here you will see the cinder cone Pu’u Pua’i and an incredible view of this crater.

Continue biking through the rain forest to Devastation Trail. Here, you will get a close up view of Pu’u Pua’i cinder cone. Then the action continues as we bike to Keanakako’i Crater. Here we will be at the closest point to the new Halemaumau Crater, see a spectacular panoramic view, and the Road to the Nowhere.

The journey continues to the top portion of the Chain of Craters Road. You will see the devastating 1974 lava flow and cross the finish line at Puhimau Crater.

    Our guide was very professional and helpful. The advertisement which shows a volcano does not represent the bike ride tour we went on.
