"The Big Island" of Hawaii Live Volcano Tours

Perhaps of all the features that mark the Big Island's landscape the Kilauea Volcano at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the most exciting and dynamic!


For over 25 years the fountains of fire have continued with tremendous intensity and today Mt. Kilauea is the volcano with the longest-lived rift activity in known Hawaiian volcano history.


Its ever present and relentless march to the sea has proved unstoppable and has forever changed the landscape of the Big Island.


Sightseeing Tours by van can also be taken to see the sites and pick-up can often be arranged from either the Kona or the Hilo side of the island.


Perhaps the most intimate way to see the volcanoes however would be to go with one of the Hiking Tours that trek the safer outreaches of the volcano.


Often times you can get within just feet of the slowly moving molten lava but one should only go to these areas with guides who are aware of the safety hazards and limitations of the Hikes.


Lost in the rolling and fiery fields of lava have been thousands of archeological features and artifacts.


Temple and heiau sites have been covered.


Petroglyph fields and villages have been destroyed.


Large stretches of the Chain of Craters Road have been buried and it is estimated that every minute 130,000 gallons of molten lava are forced through giant cracks and "pu'u's" in the earth's crust and flow their way to the ocean where they continue to expand the acreage of theBig Island to make it an even bigger Big Island.


Hawaii Volcano Tour Big Island Hawaii Volcano Tours Big Island.


Big Island Volcano Tours are very popular and are a "must" for your Big Island vacation.


The most exciting tours may be via Helicopter.


Since the rift area of Mount Kilauea is so large and in many cases so dangerous to traverse by foot, the best way to truly see the full scope of this natural phenomenon is from the air.


Air Tours can be by Helicopters which depart from either Kona or Hilo side or they can be on a special sightseeing plane.


Such planes in fact also depart from nearby Hawaii on a two hour flight over the channel to view the volcano before returning.


Any way you choose to do it the Big Island of Hawaii volcano tours of the active volcanoes are bound to be the highlight of your Big Island of Hawaii adventure.
