Join the Hidden Craters Hike for a Big Island off road climb and hike up the cool and misty slopes of Hualalai volcano. 4 Wheel Drive vans carry you up most of the way to 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) elevation before you begin your on-foot ascent to visit a surreal scene of lava flows and a forest full of native birdsong. This adventure tour teaches you all about the best of Kona - beer and volcanoes!

Description:
See the geologic forces which helped create the Big Island at Kaupulehu Crater, the heart of Hualalai's last eruption. Visit magnificent coastal viewpoints, see stunning lava formations, and scramble through a lava tube on foot.

Climb aboard head off on a Big Island off road adventure up the side of Hualalai, one of Hawaii's most fascinating natural volcanic areas. The off-road 4x4 vans carry you from sea-level through a dense rain forest to a world of volcanic majesty at 6,000 ft. (1,800 meters) of elevation on privately owned lands of Kaupulehu. Enjoy a hike through this native rainforest and seldom visited uplands before reaching the coastal sights of Kailua-Kona below seemingly geologic light-years away!

Amidst distinctive native birdsongs, this exclusive access tour will take you through a beautiful and surreal landscape of native dryland forest, lava flows and enormous, deep craters. Your guide will also lead you, on foot, on an exploration of an impressive lava tube. In this quiet and refreshing sub-alpine climate, your guide will explain the awe-inspiring forces of volcanism and the historic eruptions that changed the landscape of the Kona Coast far below.

Cap off your hike with samples from Kona's newest brewery.  Discover how this local brewery was founded, tour their facility to learn about their island inspired beer and cider flavors, sustainable sourcing practices and find out what makes their drinks so delicious.  After exploring the brewery, sample some of the local favorite beers and ciders!

This Hidden Craters Hike tour involves a moderate 3-4 miles (4.8 - 6.4 km) of hiking with approximately 500' elevation gain; all participants must be able to walk on uneven terrain and make short climbs unassisted.
