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.
