Aloha Folks! We have resumed our tours, but tour times and prices have changed, as well as the distance and duration of the tour. We will have tours at 7:00 am and 3:00 pm. There is more incline involved and the terrain is rougher. The flow is approximately 4 mi away from our starting point, but the incline makes it a lot more difficult. The hike one way is approximately 2 1/2 hrs – 3 hrs and we stay at the flow for 1 hour. Due to the degree of difficulty and length of time, tour prices are currently $150 per person. This is an EXTREME hike, so guests must be in good physical condition.
On a lighter note, last night’s flows were very nice. Viewing the lava was a nice reward after the hike. We were able to get up close and personal to the flowing lava and able to put a stick into the lava and our guests were extremely pleased with the activity that we got up to. This flow is very wide as we were on the western edge of the eastern flow. The eastern edge of the flow was approximately 3/4 mi away from us. The weather held up and we stayed dry with just a few sprinkles being the exception. Overall it was a good tour and the lava activity was also good.
