Enjoy a private Hawaii Volcanoes National Park tour with your guide. Marvel at epic views from the Halem'uma'u Crater, where you can see active lava if you're lucky.


  • Private volcano tour with a maximum of four
  • See active lava (depending on what the volcano is doing)
  • Explore my personal favorite (and some secret) spots in the park


We begin by meeting at the Kilauea Visitor Center at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Following a brief introduction, we climb into our 4-door, Ford F150 pickup truck (looks real cool) and head towards the summit of Kilauea. It's a short walk from the parking lot to the overlook where you will see Halem'uma'u Crater that completely changed during the historic 2018 three month event. We will then take a short drive to experience the non toxic, non smelly steam vents. Next up is Nahuku (Thurston) Lava Tube, which is always a favorite that visitors will enjoy. If the volcano is active and producing lava we will be able to walk to an overlook to see the action from about a mile away. I bring a scope and tripod that allows us to see the action close-up. Please note: the walk to the overlook is about 1 mile (1.6 kilometer), one way. Back in the truck, we begin exploring Chain of Craters Road with a few stops to explore past lava flows. Let me show you the beauty of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park!
