See Active Lava Flow Up Close with Fabienne!


Active lava flow is currently accessible by foot. Our friend Fabienne offers a guided hiking tour, and she safely gets you as close to hot lava as possible. Her afternoon tour starts between 3-4pm and usually finishes around 10-11pm. The active flow can be anywhere from 4-10 miles roundtrip hike. This can change daily depending on the volcanic conditions. Once the tour group arrives to the active lava flow, the group spends 1-2 hours experiencing the beauty of creation. Her departure times, hiking distances, and tour location are subject to change due to fluctuations in volcanic activity.
