Your interpretive guide will share the geological processes and Hawaiian legends of the volcano on this hike to get as close as we can to molten lava. This is a strenuous hike 8-10 miles roundtrip in search of red molten lava. Search for surface breakouts of lava and ocean entry. Our special access to a private parking area gets you 2 miles closer to the flow front than the public parking area saving 4 miles round trip off the hike to the Ocean entry. Learn about the history and legends of Kilauea Volcano from a scientific and cultural perspective. A moderate to strenuous 4-5 Mile hike over rocky and uneven terrain to see where the flow meets the ocean. While lava viewing is not guaranteed, your highly trained interpretive guide will lead you to the best places to view active lava while remaining within the areas deemed safe and legal by Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Ranger staff. We outfit the group with everything you need to be comfortable along the way. Enjoy a local-style Dinner at a Hilo landmark- Ken's House of Pancakes.
