About
The price listed is for the entire van and guide for up to 10 people. Only you and your family or group, one price. We live in Volcano and we are both National Park Certified Interpretive Guides so you are getting the best experience. We created this activity to make learning about volcanoes budget and family-friendly. There is so much to learn in the Park and so much to see it would be difficult to know how to prioritize if you are on your own. Ride along in our Mercedes van and see video footage of past eruptions. This tour is customized to your and your group's interests. There are easy hikes and more difficult hikes, there is a lot to see and do if you have a little help with your options. Give you and your family an exciting experience you will remember and get more out of the National Park than you would if you were on your own! This is customized to you so book today! Please do not contact us for afternoon tours, many other companies already offer those.

What to expect
  • Lava is back! In Halemaumau Crater! You can see the glow from lava when it's dark and sometimes you can see lava during the daylight as well. For the BEST experience see it at sunrise, book the 5 AM start, then have breakfast at the Volcano House after the tour. Or leave the driving to us and book our Kona Volcano with a pickup on the west side of the island. Please do not contact us for afternoon tours. This Park is a World UNESCO Heritage site, get the most out of your visit to this treasure. On this tour, you will learn about Hawaii volcanoes, walk through lava fields, see video footage of eruptions, learn about native plants and birds. We can do easy walks and very little hiking or we can do quite a bit of hiking. We do a minimum 1 mile walk. You will see all the best sites at the Park, we will show you the best places to see the glow if you want to stay in the Park and wait until dark. **Please dress with layers, it is often 15-30 degrees cooler up in the Park compared to the rest of the island. It can be 79 and warm and down to 55 all in one day. Part of the Park is in a rainforest, it rains almost every afternoon (morning is usually clearer). Closed-toe shoes required.**

Fantastic Tour!
We had a great tour of volcanoes National park with Jodi. It was exactly what we were looking for and she really helped us make the most of our time in the park. We had an amazing experience viewing the lava before sunrise and then toured all the highlights of the park (plus some) after that. Jodi was knowledgeable, prepared, friendly and made the tour interesting/engaging for our whole family. Highly recommend!
