I just booked a hiking tour with Kaalapana Cultural Center to see the lava flow. But I've been doign some research after including reading through this thread (tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29217-i268-k50287…) and it looks like the hike is not easy.
My wife and I are both in our 30s and reasonably fit, but we haven't hiked so much. I'm more so concerned whether my wife will be able to keep up, so was wondering if the hike is a good idea or not. Do you recommend that I take a helicopter tour instead?
Other than the lava flow, what else is there to do in the Volcano area? What other tours do you recommend?
