Active Volcano, Rainbow Waterfall & Black Sand Beach
Explore one of the world's most active volcanoes with a trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Take a brisk walk along the Kilauea volcano crater to view fields of lava and volcanic formations. Experience the volcanically heated steam vents while taking in extraordinary views. Visit Kilauea caldera where molten lava is brewing just under the crater floor. Walk through a lush rainforest and traverse an ancient lava tube. Extensive hikes are available for the adventurous travelers, please inquire.
This Big Island tour is not to be missed. . . a true treasure of Hawai'i Island!
2018 VOLCANO UPDATE:
Kilauea Volcano continues to erupt. It is still very safe to travel to both Hilo and Kona. We are offering an Alternative Volcano Tour itinerary that take you to experience some great sights on the island that are far from any hazards of the volcano.
Tour Beginning in Hilo: (approx. 7 hours)
Explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park including a visit to the steam vents, viewing of the active Halema'uma'u crater where lava is brewing just under the crater floor, hiking through the rainforest to Thurston Lava Tube, and viewing of other volcanic formations.
Highlights of Hilo including Rainbow Falls, views of Hilo Bay from Liliuokalani Gardens, and a beautiful black sand beach home to Hawaiian green sea turtles.
2018 Volcano Alternative Tour Itinerary:
The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is currently closed as of May 11, 2018. At this time I am running an alternative Volcano tour itinerary includes a trip up the Saddle Mountain road to view Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, two of our largest volcanoes that are not currently erupting (and a fair distance away from Kilauea). You will experience older lava flows with optional hiking trails and bird watching, the Kaumana cave lava tube, native rainforest, waterfalls and Hilo's black sand beach.
