The Elite Volcano Hike on Kilauea offers an unforgettable journey through some of Hawaii's most spectacular natural treasures. Led by a National Park Service certified guide, the hike begins with a drive across Saddle Road where you will gain insight into Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, two of Earth's tallest and largest volcanoes.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park will then offer you the chance to witness first-hand how lava reached downtown Hilo in 1881 via Kaumana Caves and their associated lava tube system, before exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park's 2018 eruption destruction via Halema'uma'u trail, an approximately three-mile trail which winds its way through ancient forests, over rock slides and eventually out toward Kilauea Caldera where you will witness an immense 1,000-foot-deep pit created by it's impact.
The Elite Volcano Hike on Kilauea is an incredible experience that covers numerous remarkable sights in Hawaii National Park, such as Mauna Ulu Lava Flow and Nahuku Lava Tube. If there is an eruption at its summit, the night may bring with it the chance to watch its glow after dark - the ultimate treat for nature enthusiasts and historians of Hawaii alike! Don't miss this rewarding journey through Kilauea Volcano National Park.
