101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - DIVERSIONS -

There’s no bet­ter way to wit­ness the fury of Ki­lauea and get close enough to re­ally feel the heat than on a guided bi­cy­cle tour through Vol­cano Coun­try.

For the com­plete bike­tour ex­pe­ri­ence of hawai‘i vol­ca­noes na­tional ParK, there’s biKevol­cano.com’s day triP that takes cy­clists on a mostly down­hill, paved, 15-mile course through the park. For those who don’t have time for the full-day tour, there’s the summit tour. Both tours of­fer pick-up at the Port of Hilo and other lo­ca­tions in Hilo and Vol­cano, mak­ing them the per­fect ac­tiv­ity for cruise-ship and is­land-based vis­i­tors. The mostly down­hill course runs 8.5 miles, and takes guests from the Ki­lauea Over­look, along the rim of the caldera, to the steam vents, through a Hawai­ian rain­for­est and on to thurston lava tube.

Tours in­clude moun­tain bikes, hel­mets and other pro­vi­sions. BIKEVOL­CANO.COM (808) 934-9199
