3 Ways to Experience Active Volcanoes in Hawaii

Have you ever heard those stories about the massive destruction done by an active volcano? Did you stand in awe of its raw power? Were you fascinated enough to learn more? When you book one of the many options to visit the sites of volcanic activity in Hawaii with Discover Hawaii Tours, you’ll be able to experience the sheer size, power, and magnitude of real volcanoes first hand.


One exceptional tour option available to you through Discover Hawaii Tours is the Hawaii Volcano Eco Adventure and Helicopter Tour. When you book a seat on this tour, you’ll hop inside a helicopter to see the astounding magnitude of active volcanoes that are inaccessible from land. You’ll leave the lush green scenery of the Hawaiian Islands behind and see all the action from the air. From your new vantage point, you will visit Mt. Kilauea, the most active volcano on the Hawaii tours, and you’ll be able to see active lava flows. Later in the day, you’ll see volcanoes from the ground, which will enhance the experience!


If you want to take in lots of volcano sights and information in a single day, the One-Day Hawaii Volcano Eco-Adventure Tour from Oahu is likely the best option for you! On this tour, you’ll not only get to see an active volcano, but you’ll get to explore and even touch some of the beauty that volcanoes and lava flows can leave behind. For example, you’ll get to walk through the Thurston Lava Tube, which is exactly what it sounds like—a tube or tunnel made from the flow of molten lava. Today, you can walk through it as if it were manmade. You’ll also get to the see the Big Island Black Sand Beach. Black sand isn’t native to the beaches of Hawaii, rather it’s a byproduct of an erupting volcano. When hot lava hits the ocean water, it cools and hardens almost instantaneously and then shatters, leaving behind fragments that look and feel like sand.


For any sight-seers hoping to intersperse their volcano sightseeing with a bit more of the lush beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, the South Shore Oahu Afternoon Sightseeing Tour may be the right choice. This tour includes a visit to the Halona Blowhole, a natural formation made thousands of years ago by molten lava tubes. Today, water in the tubes is sprayed nearly thirty feet in the air to the delight of all who gather to see it. Other beautiful sights you’ll experience on this tour include Sandy Beach, a popular and famous surfing spot, and Amelia Earhart Lookout, where you can look across the blue and green ocean currents and imagine the course that Amelia Earhart took in her small plane as the first woman to fly solo from Hawaii to North America.
