Kilauea Caverns of Fire
Strap on a headlamp and gloves and get ready to explore the underbelly of the world's most active volcano. Tours through these fascinating caves and lava tubes underneath the volcano must be arranged in advance, but are well worth a little extra planning. Located off Highway 11 between Hilo and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Kazamura Lava Tube system is comprised of four main tubes, each 500-700 years old and filled with bizarre lava formations and mind-blowing colors. It's the largest lava tube system in the world—40 miles long, 80 feet wide, and 80 feet tall. Tours are customized to your group's interest and skill level. Equipment included. Call for directions. www.kilaueacavernsoffire.com. COST: $29 for walking tour, $79 for adventure tour. OPEN: By appointment only.
