Kilauea Volcano Bike - Nui Pohaku Adventure Tours
Your exciting day begins with a scenic narrated drive from downtown Hilo to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Or you may meet us at the National Park if that is your preference! Fill your senses with the ride of a lifetime! Experience the volcano up close and personal as you ride through plush rainforest and lava frozen in time on your 21-speed mountain bike. Your cycling adventure takes place around the rim of one of the most active volcanoes in the world! 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 an incredible rainforest that leads you directly through an amazing lava tube. Other mini hikes are to scenic over-looks to witness the heart of the volcano exploding at Halema'uma'u Crater. This fully narrated adventure truly one of a kind! During your ride, you will stop at the Jaggar Museum where you will see videos of the volcano erupting. The Jaggar Museum is also home to many seismographs, which monitor every twitch of the earth. Throughout the tour your guide will share with you history and geology of the area during the frequent stops along the way - an exciting and active way to spend the day at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park!

Very knowledgable and enthusiastic guides. A great way to see this area.
Hunter and Pono were terrific today! At every opportunity, they filled us with energy, information, and a desire to keep on moving! Their knowledge of the area was exceptional and their attention to details made the trip first class and five star. From offering to take group pictures at every opportunity, to keeping us hydrated, to making sure every aspect of the ride was a perfect fit ~ they were both spot-on! I wouldn't do the tour any other way! The biking adventure was by far the best experience! Hunter and Pono were terrific today!

Pono was our guide and he was fabulous! We enjoyed his humorous stories and the little "extras" he threw in during the tour showing us places where no other tours go! Steve the owner was very considerate and understanding when we had an illness and weren't sure if we would be able to go. Turns out we were well enough and so glad we didn't miss this adventure. Tom Barefoot rep even called to see how we were doing and whether we were well enough to go. This was an above and beyond service from everyone!
Even before the tour started, I was very impressed with Tom's Barefoot. My husband and I waited until we got down to Hawaii before making our reservations and it was quite difficult to set something up with such short notice! Tom's Barefoot really helped us out and worked with some of the other companies to find us a spot! The tour itself was pretty awesome. The trails weren't too difficult and the sights were incredible. Our bus driver and bike guide did a great job explaining the sights and history behind it. All in all a great tour!
It was great. Nate could have been a little better about making sure the
stragglers were keeping up.
