Activity Details
Hike with an experienced volcano guide to not one, but THREE of the major craters of Mount Kilauea in Hawaii Volcanoes National park in one day!  Truly an awesome and unique experience hiking these awesome attractions! All in a single tour!  
1) A quick view of the Main Crater at Halemaumau starts us off.
2) Mauna Ulu, an impressive still-steaming crater where you can peer down into the depths of the volcano! This is an exclusive tour from Kona and Waikoloa as it requires a certified guide!
3) Across Kilauea Iki Crater floor, a spectacular hike across the still steaming vents since it's last eruption! Includes jungle hiking and an impressive but challenging climb out of the crater! Don't worry, you can do it!

Including both deli-style lunch and local-style dinner, as well as transport in style in a Mercedes Benz high-ceiling van, this moderately strenuous hike will leave a lasting impression of Hawaii's awesome volcanoes that you will never forget.

  • This was the best tour of many I had during my 2 week stay across 3 islands! It’s one of those once in a lifetime experiences. Our tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable! Highly recommend. It should be top of your list!

  • Full day group tour was amazing, our guide Mike was extremely knowledgeable and kept us entertained all day.

  • Mike did a great job, very informative about the whole island, not just your sites. The lunch and dinner we're good and we are at some unique places.

  • Michael does all the hiking tours and was extremely helpful, informative, and safety-focused. On the way there he stopped on the side of the road several times so that we could take pictures at iconic spots or he could show us fruit at a local vendor. Some 'tours' are just chauffeurs, but Michael was a true guide and expert on Hawaii and Volcano National Park. We got to go up on the edge of a volcano - a place you can only go with a certified guide. I considered going by myself to hike in Volcano National Park, but I'm glad I didn't. We got so much more out of the trip and got to see so much more with Hawaii Now Adventures!

  • I was so fortunate to experience this tour with another solo traveler Hana and our amazing guide Mike. A group of 10 rescheduled, so we got to experience so much during this whole day tour. The hiking was absolutely my favorite part of this tour. However, everything we did was excellent from the fruit stand on the side of the road, black sand beach with green sea turtles, local coffee farm in the South, lunch at an amazing portuguese bakery (hot pastrami sandwich delish), and dinner at the Rock's uncle's diner (rice with oxtail soup and macadamia pies delish). Mike is so kind and extremely knowledgeable and I can't wait to come back and take another tour with him. Thank you for an amazing time.

  • Our guide mike is a really perfect guide explain us all the details and he is very gentle ı advise everyone to make this tour with mike

  • Everything would have changed now due to the recent volcano activity. But... This tour was really really great. We saw so much in one day, it was unbelievable how much ground we covered. Note: You must be physically able to do a bit of hiking ! Our guide took the time to explain alot to us as we were hiking worth the money for sure!

  • This tour was an amazing experience. Our guide was laid back, knowledgeable and funny. It was impressive when we stopped at the base of Mauna Ulu to give a prayer of thanks before climbing to the summit. We did this tour before the current eruption began to change things, so parts of what we saw are now changed forever. We were so fortunate to have a guide who knew all the little ins and outs of where to go and who to talk with. We stopped to pick fresh wild growing fruits that none of us had ever seen or tasted. He took us to the Southern most Bakery in the US for lunch and it was just fantastic. We even stopped briefly to see the black sand beach and as if on que there was a sea turtle there. We look forward to retuning to The Big Island and we hope to be able to use him again. Things will be much different now and we are excited to experience it all. Thank you and mahalo.

  • Michael Nelson, our Volcano adventure guide from Hawaii Adventures Now!, was extremely knowledgeable of Volcano National Park. We would never have hiked to some of the remote areas in the park without the guidance of an experienced guide. Michael's knowledge of volcanoes, the fauna in the area and formation of the various geographic features was extensive and he readily shared his vast knowledge and enthusiasm. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate for the night hike and our view of the volcano's glow was very limited. But, the hike was one of the highlights of our trip.

  • I highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable about the island. The hikes were great and we went at a good pace. This was a fun action-packed day.

  • We chose this tour because of the itinerary and we were not disappointed!
    Our tour guide, Mike was extremely knowledgeable and exceeded our
    expectations with his knowledge of the people and customs of the
    Big Island. The hikes were exhilarating. Wonderful day!

  • This was an amazing day with our top guide Mike he knew all the best spots to take us too so we weren't overcrowded with other tourists the best stories and took fun photos!

  • Mike, our guide, was stellar! Extremely knowledgeable, funny, and safety-conscious. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

  • Mike was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He was extremely kind, knowledgeable and friendly!! The tour was lengthy but not too intense. There were times when I was pushed a bit physically but nothing that I couldn't handle - even at 54 years of age.

    Mike knew so much about Hawaii and had great stories to share!!

    Our group was fun because we all liked to talk.

    If you like a little physical challenge and enjoy learning more about the history and culture of Hawaii, this is the tour for you. This tour was the highlight of our trip!!

  • What a great adventure! Mike our guide was amazing and entertaining ! Love it everything about our day: Thank you so much Mike ! We appreciated every moment :

  • in all of our travels this was by far the best tour we have ever been on! A fast pace has to be kept to see it all so be in shape!!
    Mike was our guide and really knew everything there was to know about the islands volcanos so it was really informative and fun at the same time, really great and when we get back to the Big Island we will do it again!!

  • We had a great day on this tour and were spoilt to only have our family along so had the full attention of tour guide Mike. There is a fair bit of walking as expected on a hiking adventure!! but these are well worth it and our three kids under 10 were fine with it all, not to mention VERY proud to have knocked over more than 20000 steps for the day! The tour is well catered with rain jackets, warm jackets, torches/flashlights etc provided as required and so you really only need to bring yourself and your walking shoes. Mike was super informative, friendly and helpful and we highly recommend this tour. Thanks Mike!

  • This was a wonderful day out. Mike and Ian picked us up at our hotel at 0930 hours and we returned at 2330 hours
    and provided us with a thoroughly engaging trip based on the the Big Island's history, flora and fauna, geology,
    geography,the volcanos,and the stars at night. The walks were excellent and well within the capability of the
    average middle aged person.
    I thoroughly recommend this excursion.

  • Our guide Mike was very friendly, made sure everyone had water and supplies. Only complaint being last to hike, we were not check on. Sometimes there was no one in site. Very informative and peacefully.

  • Great Experience!! I was expecting a 3 crater hike but I did not expect all the extra's. Mike and Ian treated us like family. We made several stops along the way to experience the local flavors with behind the scenes knowledge of the Big Island. The hike is challenging but absolutely worth it!!

  • This was a highlight of our week long visit to the Big Island. Our guide Mike was everything you would want in a guide, friendly, knowledgeable, keen, knows all the great local places for lunch and dinner the poke stop in Hilo was excellent and has some great photo tricks :.
    The tour is a long but enjoyable day. We hiked between 8-10 miles, Mike kept us fully hydrated and was able to take us on some off the trial routes that not all tour operators would, while also timing the view points so you miss the crowds and get the best views possible.
    We couldn't thank Mike enough for a truly wonderful experience.

  • Hands down the highlight of our trip to the big island of Hawaii. Our tour guide Mike really made it a wonderful and enchanting day. Once we got to the island, we checked in and got a nice call back confirming our pick up time and what to expect. The night before we got an additional follow up call from Mike to lock in the exact time of our pickup. When we saw the van pull up, I took a quick look at my watch and he was pulling in at the exact time he mentioned he would be. The van we rode around in all day was roomy and comfortable. It was loaded with bottled water, jackets, backpacks, ponchos, and even some snacks that were there for us to use. The tour itself was amazing. Mike is full of knowledge of the island, volcanoes, the stars, and loads of other information. Our group had 7 people 2 being my wife and myself and Mike did a great job of accommodating with different peoples needs and interests throughout the entire day. Before spending the day with Mike, my wife and I wondered if we should have just tackled the park on our own. There was so much we would have missed if it was not for Mike and experiences we would have never even thought to have that really made the day an unforgettable experience. If your on the big island of Hawaii, and considering a visit to Vocanos National Park just sign up for the Triple Crater Hawaii Volcano Hiking Adventure and you will not be sorry.

  • Mike has an incredible wealth of knowledge about the island which he shares in his very unassuming way. Everything from food, coffee, the local plants, the history of the people and the island, the land formations, rocks, volcanoes, and the stars and moon too! This was a full day of sightseeing the south part of the island and an awesome 3 hikes in the volcanoes. An incredible adventure!

  • Just my travel companion, myself and another couple that our leader determined were Up for the Best for both where we went and enjoyed on the treks but also for our lunch and dinner unique to Hawaii and great. Exciting -- and a bit risky in places but really a great outing -- from 10:30AM until 11:30PM, a real work-out but worth it !!
