Enjoy the sights during your drive from Hilo to the Visitor Centre at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Here, you will receive a detailed orientation and safety briefing, and be fitted with a 21-speed mountain bicycle and safety equipment.
Your 8 mile bicycle ride around the Kilauea Caldera is on paved roads and takes place over mostly level or downhill terrain with scenic view stops. You will take short walks to see the Kilauea Iki Overlook, Thurston Lava Tube, Pu’u Pua’i Overlook and the Halema’uma’u Overlook. The ride includes 2 short uphill sections, but if you do not wish to ride the hills, you can hop in the van at any time. After your bicycle ride, you will stop at the Jagger Museum to see videos of the volcano erupting.
A fantastic adventure, and a great way to see the wonderful sights of the ‘Big Island’.
