Booked thru Princess. Tour said ‘strenuous’ and it was. Said it was 1 mile... it was 2-3 mi. Up and down steep banks with stair steps of varying distances, made of rock or tropical wood with wet leaves and mud that made it slippery. None...More

We drove up to top. The lava is pretty far down, but you can see it. Pretty interesting, but you don't need a lot of time there. Driving through the lava field is also interesting.
