See the stunning beauty of Hawaii’s Big Island on a full-day island adventure on board a comfortable motor coach or a minibus. Let your professional guide take you to Volcanoes National Park where you can discover the natural wonders of Hawaii.

Start your adventure from the town where you can see the famous and historically significant Banyan Tree Drive. Hear the story of how the trees were planted by religious leaders, famous authors, movie stars, political leaders, world adventurers and local Hawaiians.

Next stop is at the Rainbow Falls located at Wailuku River State Park. This impressive waterfall is 80 foot tall and almost 100 foot wide and flows over a natural lava cave into a large freshwater pool below surrounded by dense tropical fauna. Depending on the day of your tour and the season, you might pay a visit to the world famous Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory.

The highlight of this tour is the world famous Kilauea Volcano, which has been steadily erupting since the 1980's. Learn about the fascinating history of the Big Island volcanoes from your guide. Afterwards, visit the nearby Jaggar Museum, to find out more about this natural phenomenon. During the tour you will also see the enormous Thurston Lava Tube, steam vents, Fern Tree Jungle, and the Kilauea Iki Crater. Additional highlights on this tour include a visit to an orchid and anthurium nursery in Hilo and a stop at a black sand beach.
