This Hawaii bike tour is one of the best ways to explore Kilauea volcano, where every bend in the road reveals a new volcanic wonder, from steaming craters to lava fields to cliffs dropping off toward the sea. Even better, the tour includes visits to the steam vents and Thurston Lava Tube.

Ride a bike from summit to sea down the roads of an active volcano. Nearly all of the roads and trails on the tour are downhill, level, and paved, and you have a guide who narrates the area’s mythology, geology and sights. 

All the necessary equipment is provided for this Kilauea volcano tour, as are beverages, lunch and a support van if you get tired of biking. After your start at the Visitors Center in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, ride past lush, tropical rainforests that house hidden, volcanic lava tubes—one of which you can even explore on foot and venture inside. Pass steaming vents, massive craters and barren volcanic terrain, and, if Madame Pele (the volcano goddess) is in the right mood, there’s even the chance you could see lava spilling into the sea. 

The landscape at Kilauea Volcano is unlike anywhere in Hawaii, and, since the tour’s support van is always nearby, you can bike for as long as your energy allows and still enjoy all the sights. Or, if you’d prefer to simply ride along and not use a bike at all, you can follow the group on the very same trails while comfortably seated inside. 

Your bike ride ends with a lunch with views of the ocean. On the way back to the start point, enjoy a trip to visit the Thurston Lava Tubes. Read the Itinerary for all major points of interest on this tour.

Fun Ride, Great Guide

According to our guide, Chris, we hit the only sunny/partly cloudy day within a week or so. The ride was pretty easy - couple breath-a-little-harder hills; but mostly pleasant. Good pace. We really liked Chris' explanations and stories. The variety of views made the time go quickly. Matt was very helpful with the van and trailer. We appreciated the abundance of water. Lunch was good. Overall, exactly what we'd hoped for!

The Kilauea Volcano Bike Tour was very good. I enjoyed the little hike before biking. The guide walked us through part of the park, and explained how it has changed. He also gave information on the vegetation. I enjoyed being able to bike the volcano. It was a very neat experience.

We had such a wonderful time on the bike ride Pretty and Aaron were the perfect hosts. We really enjoyed riding through the lava fields. Snacks and drinks were provided all along the trip and a great lunch was also provided at a lovely stop on the ocean. We had fun, learned a lot about the history of the island and just plain enjoyed the company. Would highly recommend this and would do it again.

We had a terrific time on the Kilauea Bike Tour. The staff was very helpful when we talked on the phone after booking and then our guides, Aaron and Pretty were great. This was a great way to see the volcano and learn about the island. The bike ride was easy if you ride recreationally, but also had some great downhill areas.

Fantastic bike ride! Such a great way to see the Volcano and surrounding area. Very relaxed and an easy bike ride, when we finished the ride we were left wanting more. Pick up from the cruise terminal was easy and our driver Pretty was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Aaron our bike tour guide very friendly and knowledgeable as well. This was a highlight of our trip to Hawaii.

Overall, a good bike ride and tour. Our tour guide was a recent geologist graduate and very knowledgable about the area and the volcanos. I would rate it a 4-5, but unfortunately a few of us experienced a terrible bike crash about half way through. It began to rain during our tour and the guide and van driver did not warn any of us about how slick the road would get. And to make matters worse, the tour guide led the way on the bikes and went way too fast. We hit a turn and 1 bike skidded out and crashed, which caused another biker to swerve into traffic and take a very hard crash on the road four other bikers skidded hard also, and narrowly prevented themselves from taking hard road crashes. This accident obviously ruined 2 of the bikers trip, as they both were bleeding and had large cuts on their legs and arms, and this put a sour mood on the entire tour for the remaining time. I realize accidents can happen, but these experienced tour guides could have easily prevented this by just setting the lead pace at a very slow pace and warning all about the keeping their speeds down on the wet roads. To make matters worse, if you read the review from 2015, another person mentioned this same issue and said his wife broke 2 ribs when she crashed. Therefore, the owner and guides should know about this issue and take measures to prevent it when it is raining.
