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.

Amazing tour!

I’ve traveled to many places and taken many tours. This is by far one of the best I have been on. We saw not only the craters and volcanos but also many parts of the island. Mike, our tour guide, was amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable and well rounded. He knows so much about the island and just about everything we saw. He is extremely accommodating. We had a 10 and 8 yo as well as my parents and heard us feel assured that what we felt ok doing wasn’t a problem. If you are on the big island, don’t pass this tour! Make space in your schedule to go on it!

The best hiking tour on the Big Island!

Mike took us on a once-in-a-lifetime hiking experience to the mouth of Mauna Ulu which had last erupted in 1974 and is still steaming. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the mountains of Hawaii, the flora and fauna, and kept us all engaged with his stories and fun facts. He was flexible with the itinerary and allowed for stops along the way to let us try fresh sugar cane and strawberry guavas. He kept our three kids interested with beautiful stories from Hawaiian folklore. We visited a few craters, a lava tube and did a short hike to Akaka falls. We loved talking with Mike, whom we called the Hawaiian Forrest Gump given all this interesting life experiences across the earth.

Customer Focused!

Michael does all the hiking tours and was extremely helpful, informative, and safety-focused. On the way there he stopped on the side of the road several times so that we could take pictures at iconic spots or he could show us fruit at a local vendor. Some 'tours' are just chauffeurs, but Michael was a true guide and expert on Hawaii and Volcano National Park. We got to go up on the edge of a volcano - a place you can only go with a certified guide. I considered going by myself to hike in Volcano National Park, but I'm glad I didn't. We got so much more out of the trip and got to see so much more with Hawaii Now Adventures!

EXCELLENT & A MUST DO

I was so fortunate to experience this tour with another solo traveler Hana and our amazing guide Mike. A group of 10 rescheduled, so we got to experience so much during this whole day tour. The hiking was absolutely my favorite part of this tour. However, everything we did was excellent from the fruit stand on the side of the road, black sand beach with green sea turtles, local coffee farm in the South, lunch at an amazing portuguese bakery (hot pastrami sandwich delish), and dinner at the Rock's uncle's diner (rice with oxtail soup and macadamia pies delish). Mike is so kind and extremely knowledgeable and I can't wait to come back and take another tour with him. Thank you for an amazing time.

Let me start with saying that I usually hate guided tours. Not this one! Mike was an excellent guide, fun and and VERY knowledgeable. He made the day a great one! We saw and did things you would never be able to do/find on your own. The day was a great mix of sightseeing and hiking. The hikes were fantastic...ones I’ll never forget, SO glad we decided to do this tour! Thanks Mike!!!
