Kilauea Volcano Bike and Lava-Hilo - Nui Pohaku Adventure Tours
Your day begins with a fully narrated drive from the Hilo area to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Ride a bike through the Volcanoes National Park and explore the lava in the Puna district all on one tour. Experience the volcano up close and personal as you ride through lush rain forest and lava frozen in time on your 21 speed mountain bike. Your cycling adventure takes place around the rim of the Kilauea Volcano and down a portion of the Chain of Craters road. It consists of mostly level terrain with a couple of small uphill and downhill sections thrown in for fun. Along with the cycling portion, you will hike through the rain forest that leads directly through an amazing lava tube. You will also see Halema'uma'u Crater. During your ride, you will stop at the Jagger Museum, home to many seismographs which monitor every twitch of the earth. After the bike tour of Volcanoes National Park, journey to the Puna district by van. Travel down the Red Road, where the scenery is amazing, as you weave through the rain forest and take in the jagged cliffs overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Walk out to the new black sand beach at Kaimu, which has forever been changed by the lava flows in the early 1990s. Next, your guide will take you on a short hike over the lava fields to view the incredible molten lava streaming down the mountain from the Pu'u 'O'o vent. See lava in motion as it descends down to the sea. As the sun sets, you will experience a dramatic change in the landscape as the fire from the sea becomes alive in the darkness of this remote area.
