Know More about this tour

Leave your Kona or Waikoloa resort or hotel in style in our new high-ceiling Mercedes Benz luxury van.  Enjoy deli-style lunch along the historic saddle road while your  guide entertains you with stories and information of Hawaii's history and local insight.  Your first hike is a 2.5 hour round trip to the summit of Mauna Ulu, where, after your specially-trained guide takes care of the required park and cultural protocols, you will peer down into a steaming crater mouth, still hot since the last eruption that sent lava all the way to the ocean.  Weather permitting, you may be able to see the currently erupting Pu'u O'o. Hike number 2 is another 2-hour round trip along the ridge and then across the crater floor of Kilauea Iki.  The hike along the ridge takes you through Hawaiian native Ohia forest where your guide will show you the varied plants and wildlife of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  On the crater floor, you'll hike across the awesomely picturesque crater floor amid steam plumes and lava formations.  After a brief hike through a lava tube, you'll head for the summit of Kilauea itself, at 1240m high, where after a quick hike you will peer at the lava-induced red glow of Halema'uma'u crater from the highest vantage point.   A local-style dinner rounds out this tour before the drive back to your hotel.

  • What a great adventure! Mike our guide was amazing and entertaining ! Love it everything about our day: Thank you so much Mike ! We appreciated every moment :

  • in all of our travels this was by far the best tour we have ever been on! A fast pace has to be kept to see it all so be in shape!!
    Mike was our guide and really knew everything there was to know about the islands volcanos so it was really informative and fun at the same time, really great and when we get back to the Big Island we will do it again!!

  • We had a great day on this tour and were spoilt to only have our family along so had the full attention of tour guide Mike. There is a fair bit of walking as expected on a hiking adventure!! but these are well worth it and our three kids under 10 were fine with it all, not to mention VERY proud to have knocked over more than 20000 steps for the day! The tour is well catered with rain jackets, warm jackets, torches/flashlights etc provided as required and so you really only need to bring yourself and your walking shoes. Mike was super informative, friendly and helpful and we highly recommend this tour. Thanks Mike!

  • A must do for anyone that is looking for the less traveled areas of the Big Island. Mike was everything you would want in a guide. He made us all feel like it was a family trip out. The hikes were comfortable but off the main trails. Lunch and dinner were great. THis is definitely a trip that allows for once in a lifetime view of Hawaii

  • This was a wonderful day out. Mike and Ian picked us up at our hotel at 0930 hours and we returned at 2330 hours
    and provided us with a thoroughly engaging trip based on the the Big Island's history, flora and fauna, geology,
    geography,the volcanos,and the stars at night. The walks were excellent and well within the capability of the
    average middle aged person.
    I thoroughly recommend this excursion.

  • Our guide Mike was very friendly, made sure everyone had water and supplies. Only complaint being last to hike, we were not check on. Sometimes there was no one in site. Very informative and peacefully.

  • Great Experience!! I was expecting a 3 crater hike but I did not expect all the extra's. Mike and Ian treated us like family. We made several stops along the way to experience the local flavors with behind the scenes knowledge of the Big Island. The hike is challenging but absolutely worth it!!

  • This was a highlight of our week long visit to the Big Island. Our guide Mike was everything you would want in a guide, friendly, knowledgeable, keen, knows all the great local places for lunch and dinner the poke stop in Hilo was excellent and has some great photo tricks :.
    The tour is a long but enjoyable day. We hiked between 8-10 miles, Mike kept us fully hydrated and was able to take us on some off the trial routes that not all tour operators would, while also timing the view points so you miss the crowds and get the best views possible.
    We couldn't thank Mike enough for a truly wonderful experience.

  • Hands down the highlight of our trip to the big island of Hawaii. Our tour guide Mike really made it a wonderful and enchanting day. Once we got to the island, we checked in and got a nice call back confirming our pick up time and what to expect. The night before we got an additional follow up call from Mike to lock in the exact time of our pickup. When we saw the van pull up, I took a quick look at my watch and he was pulling in at the exact time he mentioned he would be. The van we rode around in all day was roomy and comfortable. It was loaded with bottled water, jackets, backpacks, ponchos, and even some snacks that were there for us to use. The tour itself was amazing. Mike is full of knowledge of the island, volcanoes, the stars, and loads of other information. Our group had 7 people 2 being my wife and myself and Mike did a great job of accommodating with different peoples needs and interests throughout the entire day. Before spending the day with Mike, my wife and I wondered if we should have just tackled the park on our own. There was so much we would have missed if it was not for Mike and experiences we would have never even thought to have that really made the day an unforgettable experience. If your on the big island of Hawaii, and considering a visit to Vocanos National Park just sign up for the Triple Crater Hawaii Volcano Hiking Adventure and you will not be sorry.

  • Mike has an incredible wealth of knowledge about the island which he shares in his very unassuming way. Everything from food, coffee, the local plants, the history of the people and the island, the land formations, rocks, volcanoes, and the stars and moon too! This was a full day of sightseeing the south part of the island and an awesome 3 hikes in the volcanoes. An incredible adventure!
