Rented bikes and road to lava field on closed highway and viewed fresh lava coming down the mountain, awesome once in a lifetime experience, adventure employees very helpful and gave us a ride to end of road, then cycled to lava field, hiked 1.5 miles over very rough terrain up mountain to lava flow, very eerie experience , not for the faint of heart. Hike back in total darkness was surreal, all the stars wee visible above, wow!

Ask for Levi - he was an awesome tour guide! The coffee plantation was beautiful. The winery and BBQ were delicious and being that close to an active volcano is humbling. Well with the time! Oh, and don’t forget to ask for Levi and ask about TRex!!

What an amazing way to explore the Volcano, the crater, the lava tubes and the lava glow! The hikes, the stories and all the extras( snacks, water, peppermint refreshing clothes) all made this an unforgettable experience. Jessica, our guide was amazing, and we loved listening to her stories of the area and the time she took with us to make certain our time was exactly what we wanted it to be. The steam vents, Pele’s hair, running into some NASA Scientists, the rainbows, and the old lava waves made the hike across the crater -AMAZING! Ending the night watching the glow from the lava lake was a perfect way to end an incredible day of adventuring. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves hiking and we will be back!
