The eastern part of the Big Island is riddled with lava tubes, but they are located in other areas of the island as well. Thurston Lava Tube is easily accessible because of its location within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Also located in the park is the pristine, 500-year-old lava tube, Pua Po’o. To protect the tube, only 12 people are allowed entry each week. Park employees ask participants to keep the location secret so no one harms the tube. Reservations are required a week in advance.
Cost: $182.95/person (50-minute “Circle of Fire plus Waterfalls” tour)
