This is a really great example of a lava tube, usually when you go to State/Federal parks to see the tubes they tend to be larger with less variety of visible flow patterns and rock formations. Really interesting and great for Geology buffs, the tour...More

Great tour of a lava tube! Harry has vast knowledge. I learned a lot that made me look at the lava differently throughout the rest of our trip. Since we couldn’t visit Volcanoes National Park I found this and was glad we didn’t miss it.

I had such a good time and felt safe with our guide. No words to describe the beauty of these lava tubes. Pictures are hard to take as it is pitch dark down below with only the flashlights.
