More on Evening Volcano Explorer:
Make Kilauea Volcano and Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park your destination, and stay past sunset! The Evening Volcano Explorer starts at the KapohoKine Adventures’ store in downtown Hilo where you can stock up on adventure gear from Patagonia, Keen, and Columbia, or start your adventure on their indoor climbing wall. Boarding your tour vehicle, the lush greenery of Hilo gives way to stark black basalt lava flows in Kalapana, a village completely destroyed by the advancing lava just a few years ago. First stop will be a walk across the recent lava flows to the newest black sand beach on the island. You will witness how the colvano engulfed everything in it’s path, even completely filled in Kaimu Bay with molten lava. This walk takes you over what once was the best swimming beach on Hawaii Island.
Next stop is the Lava Viewing Area in Kalapana, where your vehicle drives over the lava flows that overran the highway. Look for any current volcanic activity available before heading to the Painted Church. Now decommissioned, it was the first home in Hawaii to Saint Damien before he famously found his calling amongst the lepers of Molokai. This Church was so important to determined local villagers that it was moved, not once but twice, to evade the advancing molten lava flows. Finally, your Park Ranger-trained guide reveals the highlights of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, from active volcanic craters and steam vents to the historic Jaggar Museum. Watch for current volcanic activity as the sun sets before returning to Hilo. Dinner is included. Tour duration is approximately 7 hours. Red molten lava cannot be guaranteed may not be seen.
