Kalapana offers a wide variety of people living on the edge of the lava and are out to make a buck. These so called ‘companies’ and small outfits do not carry insurance or even take any responsibility for your well-being and that should be a huge concern for you when your vacation and health depends on a safe tour.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with people starting a lava touring company to make some extra money, but when you come to the Big Island to fulfill your lifetime dream of getting up close to hot lava, you should really know that the company you choose has you and your loved one’s best interests in mind. Take the time to know as much as possible about each tour company and don’t be shy to ask the important questions regarding safety and procedure.
Remember: this hike is not just a walk in the park, people stumble and fall, lava is sharp, jagged and unforgiving.
The Best Tour Guide Companies
The time it takes for you to research a company’s website and ask these questions pales in comparison to an injury out on the lava field with a uninsured and unqualified “tour guide” trying to make some cash. We want you to enjoy your lava hike, take photos and leave the rest up to Aloha Lava Tours: a qualified, safety first company. Hele On!!
