Good! 3.6/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Embark on a fascinating walking tour of Volcanoes National Park and get up close to one of the world’s most active volcanoes at Kilauea. Trek across the living rainforest off the Puna Coast, explore hidden overlooks, and witness firsthand the power of Mother Nature.

Kick off your adventure at Volcanoes National Park—an International Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site. Meet your guide and head to the lush rainforest, where you can hear the chirping of native birds and marvel at the colorful Hawaiian flora and fauna.

Next, walk into a lava tube, a cave formed by once-flowing lava, and then witness the explosive power of the Halema’uma’u Crater. Continue to Kapoho-Kalapana Road, also known as the "Red Road," along the breathtaking coastline of the Puna district. Here, you can peer over jagged cliffs to see the black-sand beaches that line Kaimu, a small town annihilated by the eruptive lava flow of the Kilauea volcano in 1990.

Depending on conditions, your journey may end with spectacular views of an active lava flow. It's only a short hike to see and hear the glowing molten rock burn and crackle its way into the crashing waves of the ocean.
