    Kilauea Volcano Lava field Expedition

    Follow a guide through an active lava field in the shadow of Kilauea Volcano as the red-hot molten rock glows.


    After departing from the pier, enjoy a one hour picturesque drive toward the island’s southern coast, where the landscape changes from lush greenery to black basalt lava. It’s an amazing transformation, especially since the Kilauea Volcano is still active here and continues to alter the terrain in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.


    Upon arriving in the park, you will be driven as close as it is safe and then set off on foot to find the most recent surface outbreaks and ocean entries. Trek across a lava field that has now cooled and hardened, forming crevices. Because lava hardens rapidly, it looks like it is still in motion, as if the flow has been frozen in time.


    Along the way, your guide will elaborate on Hawaii’s volcanic history and advise you on the safest path to follow as you approach the active lava field. You’ll also enjoy a delicious picnic-style deli dinner at a private location.


    It’s an amazing experience out on the lava field. Skylights in the lava tube system and surface flows suddenly glow bright red and the crackle and hiss of escaping gasses and liquid rock changing to solid seems to grow louder as the lava slowly marches to the sea. Your exact path will be determined by the flow of lava. Should you be able to follow the flow all the way to the sea, you might witness the fiery lava meeting the cool water and sending plumes of steam high into the air. A sight you will no doubt remember long after returning to the pier.
