Lava viewing is open 4 a.m. – 10 p.m. daily.
We welcome you to the Big Island of Hawaii. Our volcanoes built our Island and continue to shape it today. The Kilauea Volcano is the most active volcano in the world. It has been continuously erupting since 1983. Since 2007 a surface lava flow from the Kilauea volcano has been flowing in the East Rift Zone, where surface lava flows are actively flowing out of the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent.
See Hawaii Adventures was formerly Kaimu Rentals, the original Lava Flow bike rental shop. We are still a Native Hawaiian family owned business. We are here to offer bicycle and shuttle rentals to make the roughly 4 mile/7 km journey, each way, a faster and more enjoyable way to reach the Lava Flow viewing area. By bike it takes about 30 minutes to ride out to the point where you lock up the bikes (we provide locks, helmets & small backpacks) and begin your lava field hiking adventure. When you return to the bikes it is about a 40 minute bike back to the parking area. This varies person to person. Save your time and energy for the hike. Check out our Van Shuttle Service to shorten this ride. We are conveniently located on the right hand-side of Hwy 130 in the lava viewing parking area. Look for our orange and white flags on the roof.
Booking your bikes in advance assures the availability of the bikes you select. RESERVE NOW!
Today’s Report: The incredible surface lava is flowing heavy with constantly shifting and changing patterns. The hike to experience the surface lava flow up close is approximately 50 minutes out, after you lock up the bikes.
Current Recomendations: The current distance of hiking on the uneven lava field terrain can be difficult for children under 6 years old or for adults with walking restrictions. As the flow conditions change this recommendation will be updated.
