September 22,2013 Guided Lava Tour Update

Aloha everyone! Good news Lava is flowing once again. With many scouting missions  out to the new surface flow we have agreed to open up our tours and started to take tours at this time. Lava continues to flow at this time and it is accessible right now. Lava flows have just entered the Royal Gardens Subdivision and is very active right now. It is a lot further n then previous hikes in the past. It is also a elevation climb of about 1200 feet with just about 4.2 miles each way. It is not an easy hike but well worth it. The views are breathtaking and the flows are really active. We have opened up 2 tours a day at this time. We have an early morning hike witch departs at 6:00am and our second tour departs 2:00pm in the afternoon. The duration of the hike is just about 6 to 7 hours round trip. We are gaining access to this flow soon witch will cut the times and length of the tour in half. Stay tune for more updates. These pictures are from our tour this morning. Aloha!
