Kona Coffee & Craters
by Hawaii Forest & Trail

Venture onto private land behind 3 locked gates to explore the upper slopes of Kona’s very own volcano – Hualalai.

This journey provides intimate, unique access to volcanic sites and one of Kona’s most famous coffee farms, all within a short distance.

  • Exclusive access onto Hualalai volcano and into a native forest
  • Stand on the edge of precipitous volcanic craters that plunge deep into the earth below
  • Make your way through an intact lava tube unaltered by humans
  • Enjoy a private coffee estate tour and samples of 100% Kona coffee, tea, and chocolate

  • Deli style lunch with assorted soft drinks, juices and bottled water.
  • 100% Kona coffee samples served at coffee farm.
  • Walking sticks, warm wear, day packs and rain ponchos.



  • Guests should be able to hike on uneven or rocky terrain. We sometimes encounter cool, wet or muddy conditions. Other tour restrictions may apply.

What to Bring & Wear

  • Comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and a light sweatshirt or jacket.

How much hiking do we do?

  • We’ll stop a couple times throughout the adventure for short hikes of less than ½ mile.

Is there elevation gain?

Our tour ranges from sea level to 6,000 feet. We will meander on a single track trail through native forest with a mild elevation change of approximately 30 feet. While exploring the lava tube, expect to descend and ascend approximately 30 - 40 feet.

How many different types of volcanic features will I see?

  • Along the tour, we’ll see a 200 year old lava flow, spatter cones, fissures and collapse pits.

Do we need any special type of equipment to explore the lava tube?

  • The lava tube we visit is perfect for the casual adventurer. We’ll descend via earthen steps with a rope to assist and there’s enough ambient light to see all of the major features inside the cave.

Is Hualalai Volcano active?

  • Technically speaking, yes. Hualalai’s last eruption ended in 1801 so it is considered active. However, magma is not close to the surface so we won't see any geothermal activity.
