Kilauea Volcano Biking

<!--break--> <p>Experience Kilauea up-close and personal as you pedal your 21-speed mountain bike on an eight-mile ride on paved roads around the crater rim. This fully narrated adventure is truly one of a kind! </p> <br> <p>Begin with a scenic drive to the Visitor’s Center at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you will collect your bike. The route is mostly level terrain with a couple of small uphill sections. After the ride, hike through a dense rainforest that leads you directly through an amazing lava tube. Other mini hikes will be made to scenic overlooks to observe the heart of the volcano and its most active crater. </p> <br> <p>Make a stop at the Jaggar Museum with its real time seismographs and eruption footage. Snack on fresh island fruit and macadamia nuts during the tour. </p> <br> <strong> Note: </strong> Participants must be at least 12 years of age, a minimum of 4'6" in height and know how to ride a bicycle. Please be advised that while at Volcanoes National Park, you may encounter natural sulfur gases, which can affect those with respiratory problems. Bike, helmet, gloves and rain jacket are provided. Closed toe shoes are required. You won't see molten lava on this tour. Tour itinerary may change due to severe weather or volcanic activity.

Fun with a little exercise
It was extremely windy at the top of the crater where the ride began, but the wind died down as we progressed. As avid cyclists, we found this short ride very easy and enjoyable, and wished the ride was longer. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and the mountain bikes were in good condition. We made several stops during the ride at overlook points. We also had a stop for refreshments that included excellent fresh fruit, along with canned drinks, nuts, and chips. The short hike through the lava tube was just OK - we actually liked looking at the trees and other plants surrounding it more than the tube itself. It was also fun to walk on a lava field, and see the plants that had sprung up there. Oh, the stop at the Big Island Candy Company on the way back was a plus - lots of free samples!

Great way to see the volcanos
Mike & P where great guides. Funny, Informative & engaging. The ride its self is wasn't to strenuous with only 3 little hills to climb. You recommend this for a family or just a solo run.
