Receive a morning pickup from your Waikaloa or Kona hotel from a luxurious high-ceiling Mercedes van. Before proceeding on your first volcanic adventure, you’ll fuel up with an early deli-style lunch served along the Big Island’s historic Saddle Road.

Enjoy your first hike of the day at Mauna Ulu, spending 2.5 hours trekking to visit the steaming crater mouth of this volcanic site. Your well-trained guide will ensure your hike through this active volcanic area goes off safely and smoothly. Depending on the weather on the day of your visit, you might even be able to see the ongoing eruption happening at nearby Pu’u O’o.

Proceed to your next hike, a 2-hour round trip that follows a ridge before traversing the crater floor of Kilauea Iki. As you travel along the ridge, you’ll observe the unique flora and fauna of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park ecosystem, including the area’s native Ohia trees. Once you arrive down on the crater floor, marvel at the amazing scenery, which includes surreal lava formations and smoky steam plumes.

Take a brief hike through a lava tube before continuing to the 4,000-foot (1,240-meter) summit of Kilauea itself. This relatively easy walk will bring you into view of Halema'uma'u Crater, where you can admire the glowing red of the lava that lies just below the surface. Finish the day with dinner at a local-style eatery before getting dropped off at your hotel.
