See the natural phenomena for which Hawaii is famous on this guided tour of several of the Big Island’s top volcano stops. In a small group, visit Mauna State Park to see the huge Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, and then head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where, if Kilauea is erupting, your guide takes you to see lava flow. Also included are hikes through the park and lunch and dinner.
What to Expect

Begin your tour with a morning pickup from select hotels. Meet your guide, board the vehicle, and head out to see two of the world's largest volcanoes, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.

After lunch at Mauna State Park, continue east toward Hilo to explore a lava tube and learn how its passages once carried molten rock from Mauna Loa's upper rift zones to the ocean.

Next, it's on to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the park is home to Kilauea, an active volcano. Your guide leads your group on hikes throughout the afternoon and, if Kilauea is erupting, takes you to prime viewing spots.

When Kilauea isn't erupting, walk the summit caldera and peer down steam vents. Then explore trails through the native rainforest before heading to see active lava glowing at dusk.

After a picnic-style dinner, your tour concludes back at your pickup point.

I feel like I went on an expedition to another planet

Let’s get the bad part out of the way first: the weather was terrible. It rained almost the entire time we were in the van on this adventure. There, I got that out of my system. Let’s be rational here. This is the tropics. The...More

Wonderful tour. To bad it rained

The guide did his best under poor weather circumstances. The tour was well organized with bad weather alternatives to keep the group happy.

We had an amazing time thanks to our wonderful guide, Taro. I was worried about my 8-year-old son getting bored on the drive from our resort to the park, but Taro kept us engaged with interesting information about the island and the volcanic activity and...More

This trip does not...but I'd recommend contacting Hawaii Forest and Trail directly. They are extremely accommodating and will happily advise if a trip to the black sand beach is available. Have fun.
