Venture onto private land behind 3 locked gates to explore the upper slopes of Kona's very own volcano, Hualalai. This journey provides intimate, unique access to volcanic sites and one of Kona's most famous coffee farms, all within a short distance. Along the tour, you will see a 200 years old lava flow, spatter cones, fissures and collapse pits.
The lava tube, that you will visit is perfect for the casual adventurer. The volcano in Hualalai is known to be very active. Hualalai's last eruption ended in 1801 and hence it is considered active. However, magma is not close to the surface so we won't see any geothermal activity. Our tour ranges from sea level to 6,000 feet. You can meander on a single track trail through native forest with a mild elevation change of approximately 30 feet. While exploring the lava tube, expect to descend and ascend approximately 30 to 40 feet.
