Explore the Big Island of Volcanoes
7 Day Vacation
Hawaii Island is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain, but it’s remarkable for more than just its size. Picture yourself visiting Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, or talk story with a cultural demonstrator at Puuhonua o Honaunau, a historic park that was once a place of refuge. Whether you’re walking on a black sand beach, snorkeling with manta rays, horseback riding in Waimea or sailing along the Kona Coast, Hawaii, the Big Island is your island for adventure.
Prepare for a thrilling day exploring volatile volcanoes, volcanic craters and lava tubes on Hawaii’s enchanting “Big Island.” The highlight of this daylong adventure is a trek to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to come face to face with Kilauea and Mauna Loa, two of the most famous active volcanoes on the planet.
The adventure kicks off at Hilo’s only black sand beach, then heads to Rainbow Falls State Park for a glimpse of an 80-feet waterfall breaking over a natural lava cave. After a foray to the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory, you will get acquainted with the island’s volcano culture and legends at Kilauea’s Jaggar Museum. While at the Thurston Lava Tube, stroll through a 500-year-old lava tube where molten lava once flowed.
These stops are great precursors for the tour’s sensational finale, a trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where continuous seismic activity keeps things more than intriguing. Here, you will encounter Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, which holds the distinction as the largest volcano on Earth. While there is no guarantee for a red-hot lava flow sighting, you definitely will gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of the island’s magical volcanoes.
