Lava Tours

Did We Mention That We Love Lava?

We mind the lava so you don't have to! Come tour it with us.

Lava Hiking

We started our lava hiking company in 2009 and have never looked back, since the lava is always on our tail.  People want to know what its like to live on the edge of an active Volcano flow.  Well let me tell you its down right exciting, never boring with a sense of fear factor at times, like in 2010 when lava hiking was just about 10 minutes from the new driveway to our property.


We Live, Sleep and Breath Lava

The lava over the years has camped in our back yard at least 4 times, stayed way past it’s welcome point, built way to many campfires along with changing our landscape.  We evacuated 2 times, ran three times and helped our neighbor’s leave once! We have seen it take beaches, houses, farms, roads and people’s lively hood.

Professional tour guide

We get asked “are you ever scared?” The answer lies in the beholder and for me it never seems to really cross my mind much since it sleeps in my back yard and we’re best friends.  Now that we provide lava hiking tours on a daily basis I spend even more time learning, educating and understanding how to live with a crazy, unpredictable, unedifying and unforgiving creature called lava.

We live, sleep and breath lava and wouldn’t change a thing!!  For Cheryl and myself lava hiking will always have it’s challenges, but will remain and always run deep in our hearts.

Thanks Madem Pele’e!
