What to expect

On this tour, experience all the wonders and excitement of the Big Island. Travel on a comfortable motor coach or minibus and see the landscapes from lush tropical rain forests to the rim of the awesome Kilauea caldera. You will embark on a scenic 260-mile journey around the most geologically diverse island in the Hawaiian chain. Scenery changes here every few miles from lush rain forests to barren black lava fields to snow capped peaks. Enjoy the fantastic views from a comfortable, luxury minibus.

Drive through the town of Kailua-Kona that was the home of the kings in the ancient times. Continue past coffee farms, macadamia nut farms, historic Kealakekua Bay, and the Punaluu Black Sand Beach. See some unforgettable natural wonders along the way, such as Kilauea, the worlds most active volcano at Volcanoes National Park, volcanic steam bluffs and experience a walk inside the Thurston Lava Tube. Enjoy the route along Crater Rim Drive to see Kilauea Iki Crater, the Volcano House Observatory, and Jagger Volcano Museum.

You can have lunch on your own at the Volcano House buffet or coffee shop. After leaving the park, visit the Akatsuka orchid and anthurium nursery in Hilo and the Big Island Candy Factory. On your way back, drive along the scenic Hamakua Coast and through the Parker Ranch lands in Waimea.
