What You’ll See

See a real volcano up close and personal and learn how these magnificent wonders have shaped Hawaii’s history and culture. Journey through Hawaii Island’s incredible range of ecosystems and climate zones before experiencing first-hand the phenomena that makes it all possible – an erupting volcano.

As we go along, you see firsthand how the volcanoes affect Hawaiians’ lives as you pass several historic lava flows. We will break for dinner in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where your guide will assess the weather conditions and decide on the best place to view Kilauea’s eruption. On most nights, your guide will lead you to Jagger Museum where you can easily see the red glowing lava below.

The Twilight Volcano Adventure finishes up with a ride back to your hotel. Depending on the weather, we may pass through Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa and stop to stargaze. If this is your first time to Hawaii, then no other night sky will ever compare.

    A super national park and attentive and knowledgeable tour guide. A great place to view a volcano crater and multiple steam vents. Depending on activity, you could see bubbling lava. Loved the place. Was really impressed with the quality of the tour and guide. It should be the showcase on environmental park experiences. A not to miss experience

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    The volcano is active right now, you can go by the steam vents, walk on lava, see hot red lava at night, hike to the lava entry point in the ocean. What a sight! Being at the Jagger Museum at sunset to see the lava from the overlook! You get a volcano and lava and a beautiful sunset! Just make sure to bring a jacket!

    The Volcanoes National Park is very fascinating. I cannot recommend this tour and tour company, highly enough. The company provided an excellent dinner, comfortable van to travel in, and professional, friendly, courteous guide, Mark, who clearly loves the island and its people and took thoughtful care of all of us. Plenty of opportunity to take photos and look through the telescope provided.

    We went to Twilight Volcano Adventure with Mark. Mark is excellent guide, passionate about his job and about Hawaii. He did everything to keep us comfortable and entertained. Also, he made a lot of bathroom stops, which is important for long bus trip. The evening tour was well timed — the glow in the caldera is not to be missed. We were fortunate to see a rainbow and the sea caves at the same time.

    The guide was just outstanding, fully knowledgeable about the history of the island, the birds and animals that inhabit the land and of course, the volcanos. Our group consisted of three fifty-somethings. We were happy to sit back and let someone else drive

    Our guide Ethan was really great. This is a nice way to get an over-view of the volcano. The tour books say you need a couple of days to see it all, and I can that that is true. But the twilight volcano adventure is really nice.  I can’t imagine a better way to see the sights at the far side of the island from Kailua-Kona / Waikoloa.

  7. Rated 4 out of 5


    Our guide seemed very knowledgeable and he answered all questions and was really kind. You go to a couple of different spots and see the sulfur and steam vents, take a short hike, take a walk through a lave tube (so cool!) Then we went to Volcano national park to see red glow from Kilauea crater

  8. Rated 5 out of 5


    We did the Twilight Volcano adventure with Ethan as our guide. Ethan was the perfect guide. Enthusiastic, great sense of humor and full of information. I had been to Volcano National Park twice before but this time I actually LEARNED something. The tour itself was lots of fun, and we especially enjoyed going to the lava cliffs on the ocean, and seeing the “glow” at the caldera. Not to mention a spectacular sunset also!
