Crater Quest- Hike the Trails of Kilauea

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park 

Tour Duration: about 6.5 hours.  Hike duration: about 2.5 hours. 

Witness the incredible evidence of a living planet as you walk beside plumes of steam coming from the residual heat resonating from deep within the earth!

Celebrate the re-opening of our National Park by exploring the routes that encircle the Kilauea Caldera. The spectacle will blow your mind!

This tour includes two hikes totaling approximately 4. 5 miles (6 km). Although one route is on an old asphalt road, the other is on a cinder path over uneven terrain. (There are only small vertical inclines, so bad knees are not challenged. ) Only relatively decent physical ability and closed-toed shoes are required.

Imagine the history of this impressive terrain as you listen to the local, cultural stories blended with the science behind Hawaii's unusual geographic history.

(Enjoy being the only group having a picnic lunch with a wild view. )

Peer over the edge of the crater rim.
Embrace the testimony of Mother Nature's power.
Experience the awe, and extraordinary beauty.

Grab your water bottle, and LET'S GO!
