Physical requirements:

Since this tour is primarily aimed towards interested individuals or small groups, the program and the physical demands can be adjusted to some extent. Generally, you don't need to be an athlete if you want to see an eruption but excellent general physical condition and good hiking capabilities are required, if you wish to access the most remote eruptive sites up to 10 miles from the nearest accessible road -- unless you are interested in chartering a helicopter to quickly fly over these areas instead, you should be prepared for long hikes.
People with asthma or other breathing problems should contact their medical doctor and inform us.
Although temperatures are generally very pleasant on Hawaii all-year through, heat can sometimes be intense when observing fresh lava from black lava fields,- it can become hot. The access to the active lava flows can be both extremely easy as well as very demanding, all depending on the actual situation. Hiking with gear for up to 6 hours over 500m of relief should not be a problem. If you are in doubt, please contact us directly.

Arrival info:

The tour starts and end in Hilo (airport code ITO) on Big Island, Hawai'i. If you fly into Kona (KOA), we recommend you to take a rental car as the best option to get to the other side of the island.
