Full description

Experience the thrill of a lifetime as you ride an e-bike around the rim of an erupting volcano. Begin at the staging area where there is secured parking and restrooms. Here you will be fitted with an e-bike and helmet and receive some safety instructions for a fun and safe experience. Join your guide who will lead you into the National Park on a bike trail through a lush native Hawaiian rainforest. Your first stop will be Waldron's Ledge where you will get your first panoramic view of Kilauea volcano's caldera and the active lava in Halemaumau Crater. Next, your ride continues a paved trail along the rim of the caldera to the Steam Vents where you will feel the heat of the volcano and get another incredible view of the Kilauea volcano's caldera. Continue biking along the edge of the crater, getting incredible vast views unseen by most visitors to the Park stopping at the Kilauea Overlook and the summit of Kilauea. Head to the opposite side of the crater and bike the lush Hawaiian rainforest. See the incredible Kilauea Iki crater before taking a short hike through the Thurston Lava Tube. The journey continues down Devastation Trail and leads you to closest viewing point to see the active lava in the summit crater. Afterward, return to the staging area.

Fun, relaxing, pleasant, safe and educational bike tour

This was a great tour with Steve, our geologist bike tour guide and George, our van driver and gear guy. Steve and George were most pleasant and helpful. The weather was cool and misty and some rain but expected when in a rainforest area. The lunch at the end of the tour was tasty with great scenery while overlooking the basaltic cliffs with crashing ocean. The bike portion of tour was easy paced with two short hills that were challenging for some but you can walk up the hill if necessary. We stopped frequently at points of interest around the volcano.The bikes are hybrids with plenty of gears, hand brakes, comfy seats and good quality. Overall memorable tour and highly recommend it.

Very informative and the time was managed well

Our guides were excellent - good team. What I enjoyed most was the time they spent telling us about the history behind the flows and the future expectations. I highly recommend the tour. Well worth the price.
