Explore an active volcano from the inside out! Start in the lava-buried village of Kalapana where a short walk across the recent lava flow reveals the beautiful black sand beach at Kaimu. We then make our way down the Puna coast to Mackenzie State Park before traveling across the stark black lava flows to find where the lava met the sea in the 1960 eruption. Finally we explore Lava Tree State Park.

Kilauea 2 Ways

Start in the lava-buried village of Kalapana where a short walk across the recent lava flow reveals the beautiful black-sand beach at Kaimu. Look for surface outbreaks and ocean entries of the current eruption. We then make our way down the Puna coast to Mackenzie State Park for an amazing view of the 40-foot cliffs that meet the Pacific Ocean. Next travel across the stark black lava flows to find where the lava met the sea in the 1960 eruption.


Then travel to an iron-based cinder cone for a photo opportunity. This cinder cone was another creation of the Kilauea eruption of 1960. Then explore Lava Tree State Park and take a short walk to a 1790 lava flow which covered the jungle and ohia trees. This is certainly the perfect way to end your Big Island volcano adventure!


Note: If you have any back problems, existing heart conditions or are pregnant, this tour is not for you. You must wear sturdy closed-toe shoes. You won't see molten lava on this tour. Order of itinerary may change.
