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.
Kilauea Volcano is what the Big Island is most famous for. The most active volcano in Hawaii and likely the world, it is also the most accessible. It is a fascinating display of the forces that have shaped our world. In fact, the volcano continues to create new land, sometimes dramatically threatening or destroying communities in the process. In Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the heart of the active volcanic region, natural wonders abound, including vast craters, steaming vents, past lava flows, lush rainforest with exotic flora, arches and cliffs towering above the ocean, and more.
On a small group tour, you'll get the most of your day exploring the region. You'll not only be comfortably escorted across vast distances (it's a really BIG Island), but you'll learn an incredible amount from an expert guide about the culture, history, and geology of the volcano and Hawaii more broadly. You'll also have exclusive access to unique stops not open to the public, including exploring a lava tube on a private property (note: the one in the National Park is closed indefinitely), enjoying a nature walk on a historical working ranch, and taking in a stunning view of Halemaumau Crater from Mauna Loa.
FALL 2018 UPDATE: The National Park reopened in September 2018, and our tours are fully operational!
