If you had to name the one thing the Big Island is most famous for, it would undoubtedly be Kilauea Volcano. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is the most fascinating place you may ever visit.
Discover volcano country, home to one of the most active and accessible volcanoes in the world, with an expert guide and the personalized care of a small group tour. See the National Park highlights including Halema'uma'u Crater, steaming vents, and a memorable nature walk on Devastation Trail among exotic flora and fauna to see the impacts of past lava flows. You'll learn about and see some of the dramatic changes to the area from the 2018 eruption that transformed the region and made international headlines. From multiple vantage points and with the guide's extensive commentary, you'll appreciate the scale of the significantly expanded main crater, as well as other breathtaking views of Kilauea Volcano.
Although the famous Thurston Lava Tube in the Park is now closed, you'll depart the Park and enjoy exclusive access to a 35-foot-high lava tube on private property only accessible by this tour, seeing firsthand how rivers of lava would traverse the land during eruptions. You’ll then stroll Richardson's black sand beach with regular sea turtle sightings.
Throughout this excursion, your friendly guide will not only ensure your complete comfort but provide you the fullest volcano experience by sharing history, geology, culture, and other fascinating information about Kilauea volcano and Hawaii more broadly.
