Big Island: Off the Beaten Path Volcano Crater Hike

1. Big Island: Off the Beaten Path Volcano Crater Hike

Experience an adventure like no other on a rocky hike up the cool and misty lava-scaped slopes of Kona's own Hualalai Volcano. Enjoy exclusive access to this stunning mountain, which offers a bird's eye view of Kona's lava history. Your guide will take you off-road, through multiple locked gates and then by foot at a 6,500-foot elevation, where you will experience the surreal scene of black lava flows and native dryland forest. You will see firsthand the geologic forces which created the islands at the heart of Hualalai’s 1801 eruption, the Kaupulehu Crater. Travel to magnificent coastal viewpoints and stunning lava formations, walk amidst a forest of native birdsong and scramble through a "lava tube".

There’s not many words to describe this adventure..... This was a privilege and breathtaking at each turn!! The guide was awesome, knowledgeable, and you knew that Mark cared about the adventure he was taking you on. Must experience.

John was great. Funny and informative and allowed for breaks to catch your breath. The hike isn’t a simple stroll but as an ex-smoker who doesn’t exercise, it was achievable and so glad we did it!
