Explore Volcanoes National Park and see many of Hilo’s other highlights as well on this full-day tour. You’ll hike over the 1980s Kilauea lava flow that covered Kalapana and Kaimu beaches and learn about the history of this world-famous volcano.
What to Expect
The highlight of our Hilo adventure is a visit to the world-famous Kilauea Volcano, which has been erupting continuously since the 1980s. Your guide will tell you about the history of the volcano on your visit to the park and as you hike the Kilauea lava flow. On our Big Island Volcano Adventure you’ll also see the Jagger Museum, the Thurston Lava Tube, Kilauea Iki Crater and Lava Tree State Park.
We’ll take you on a drive along the famed Banyan Tree Drive. The trees you’ll see on the this road were planted by various local Hawaiians, political and religious leaders, famous authors, movie stars and world adventurers beginning back in 1933.
At Rainbow Falls, located in Wailuku River State Park we’ll stop so you can take photos. This waterfall is 80 feet tall and nearly 100 feet wide, and flows over a natural lava cave into a large freshwater pool surrounded by thick tropical vegetation.
Additional highlights of the tour include a visit to a well-known orchid and anthurium nursery in Hilo, and, depending on the time of year you’re visiting, you might also visit the world famous Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory.
