Product Description

The Land Beneath the World

Explore Big Island volcanoes, flowing lava, and steaming craters on this Big Island adventure! You’ll stroll through a giant 500 year old lava tube where lava once flowed. You’ll see how these volcanoes have shaped Hawaii and the Big Island landscape and still do! Black sand beaches, green sea turtles, and stunning mountain waterfalls await you!

What makes this Volcano Tour special? In one day you will visit the main sites of Hilo and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You will walk through a lava tube and go to the world’s most active volcano, Kilauea.

Begin with a stop at Hilo’s black sand beach, where we often see Hawaiian green sea turtles. Then swing by Rainbow Falls for photos of this famous, picturesque waterfall.

Stop for a snack at the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory and try fresh macadamia nuts.

Then the volcano adventure begins. At Kilauea’s Jaggar Museum you will get a good understanding of Hawaii’s volcano culture and legends. See the types of lava and the tools that measure the volcano’s activity.

Then you will stroll though a 500-year-old lava tube, which is a cave formed when molten lava once flowed through it. It is located in a tropical rain forest with impressive tree ferns and native birds.

See Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano. Stand at the edge of Halema’uma’u crater to look for the glow inside.

Nearby Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on earth. It last erupted in 1984 and is still active.

If you have never been to the Volcano before, it is best to go with a guide. The Special Volcano Tour is the best way to see Hilo and the volcano, and learn about this fascinating location.
