Big Island Volcano Tours

Take in the thrill of viewing active volcanoes with several of the Big Island volcano tours suggested here. You don’t have to just stand there and look at lava on these sightseeing adventures. From biking, hiking, riding in a 6-wheeler, or in a deluxe helicopter, the tours listed here are as varied as the people who visit these lava-spewing wonders of Mother Earth.
There aren’t very many people who take a bicycle down an active volcano, but with the Bike the Big Volcano – Full Day Tour, that’s exactly what you do. A van takes you to the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum, high on the top of Mount Kilauea, an active volcano that hasn’t stopped erupting for 30 years. You’re fitted with a helmet and matched up with the right Giant Sedona DX hybrid mountain bike for your trip. After visiting the museum, you’ll start your trek from the Kilauea Overlook and take in an off-road trail around the caldera rim of Kilauea to experience steam vents. The Thurston Lava Tube, a natural conduit that lava once flowed through, is next on your agenda. Then, you bicycle around several craters on the Chain of Craters Road. Once you’ve traversed 15 miles down the volcano over a five hour period, you get to relax with a van ride featuring several vistas of the Pacific Ocean while enjoying a deli-style lunch. A professional interpretive guide is with you, along with van support, through this entire selection of Big Island volcano tours.
Only small groups are taken on the 12-hour Big Island Kilauea Volcano Adventure. Starting at 6:50 a.m. from Kona, a van transports you by picturesque coastlines and the interesting landscape presented on your pick of Big Island volcano tours. Your van goes up Saddle Road, which intersects the Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes and the scenery changes from the arid Ka’u Desert to lush rain forests. After a continental breakfast break of Kona coffee, fresh Hawaiian fruit and baked items, you’re off to Hilo and then up the Mount Kilauea volcano to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Enjoy views of lava flowing, displays and volcano information at the Jaggar Museum, including paintings and historical information about Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning, wind and the volcanoes. After a long visit in the park, you descend to the Hamakua Coast, for views of lush vegetation, steep waterfalls and panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean.
On the 10-hour Full Day Big Island Grand Tour with Evening Volcano Viewing you see the sights of the Island of Hawaii and then take in the splendor of Mount Kilauea at night, when lava rivers glow red with hot luster. During this choice of Big Island volcano t
