Discover the source of Hawaii Island’s creation at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park! Explore cascading waterfalls, craters, and the tsunami-stricken city of Hilo on this comprehensive volcano adventure tour.
Bear witness to the 2018 eruption that drastically altered the island’s landscape. Peer into the depths of Halemaumau Crater which has remarkably doubled in size since the 2018 eruption, viewing it from the safety of Volcano House. Watch steam clouds form as groundwater seeps onto the hot volcanic rock at the famous Steam Vents.
You'll also visit the Kilauea Visitor Center for park updates & educational displays, then enjoy the view from Kilauea Iki Overlook, a smaller pit crater next to the main Kilauea caldera. Take a scenic drive along Chain of Craters Road, sections of which were covered in lava in the 2018 Kilauea eruption. You'll reach the Kealakomo Overlook, with sweeping views of the coast and lava fields.
Enjoy an included picnic lunch at off-shore Coconut Island, which is connected to the mainland by a footbridge. It's a picturesque location in Hilo Bay.
Marvel at not one but two spectacular waterfalls – Rainbow and Akaka Falls. At Rainbow Falls, the water cascades to a pool below as rainbows magically form in the mist. Then the must-see Akara Falls is set in a rainforest filled with bamboo groves, orchids and hanging ferns.
Finally, visit Hilo Town, including Banyan Drive, Richardson’s Black Sand Beach & Liliuokalani Gardens.
