Island Hop Lava Glow Tours

kilauea lava glow toursIsland Hop Lava Glow Tours

Island Hop Lava Glow Tours are ideal if you’re flying in for the day.

Don’t miss seeing Hawai’i’s active volcanoes when you’re in the islands! If you’ll be staying on Oahu, or one of the other Hawaiian Islands, you can still fly in for a day tour. Our Island Hop Lava Glow Tours pick up right at the Hilo International Airport, and are conveniently timed with arriving and departing flights.

You’ll visit Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park highlights, including the Steam Vents, Nahuku Lava Tube, Devastation Trail, Kilauea Iki Overlook, and Jaggar Museum. You’ll walk through native rainforests, along crater rims and across cooled lava fields.

Then, we’ll bring you right to the edge of Kilauea Caldera, where you can see the dramatic glow from the active lava lake within Halema’uma’u Crater at dusk. The red lava is not visible, but each evening at dusk, the glow from the lake paints the 300′ crater walls and rising steam plume gorgeous shades of pink, orange and gold. It’s a spectacular sight you’ll never forget!

Please Note: You will not see red lava on this tour. You can see active lava on our Lava Hikes only.
