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. The Lava field hike is about 3 hours out and another 3 hour hike back to the bikes. When you return to the bikes it is about a 40 minute bike back to the parking area. Total hike and bike adventure is 6 to 8 hours. 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 huge tent on the right with orange and white flags on the roof. (Continue past the “Free Public Parking Lot” there is free parking further down Hwy 130 after the road changes to dirt. It is much closer to us and the lava viewing areas.)
Booking your bikes in advance assures the availability of the bikes you select.
Today’s Update: The hike to the surface lava flow up close is approximately 8 hours round trip. Bring water and food for this hike.
