Summit Tour Special - Bike Volcano
Join Bike Volcano on an amazing guided bicycle tour of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawai'i, exploring the summit of Kilauea Volcano. Your exciting day begins at the immense summit crater, which is currently erupting. You will bike around the rim of this erupting crater on off-road trails and paved roads. Here you will get a chance to feel the heat of the volcano as you stand next to the steam vents. Periodically throughout the tour, your guide will share geological, mythological and botanical information with you. After leaving the summit crater, you will head through the lush ancient Hawaiian rain forest. Here you will see the incredible Kilauea Iki Crater and take a short hike through the rain forest to the famous Thurston Lava Tube as you are serenaded by native Hawaiian birds. The adventure continues as you wind your way through the rain forest and cross the finish line at the devastating 1974 lava flow.

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