We only have one day to dedicate to the park, and it's the main reason I wanted to visit Big Island. The tours I've seen (Forest and Trail seems to be the fave) don't offer a day and night tour combo- I really want to do both. Should we just try to go it alone (we will have a jeep) or will we be able to make the most of our time with a tour?
I'd planned to arrive late morning and stay until dark to see the lava "glow". We're driving from Hapuna Prince Resort, so will be spending a lot of time in the car. We're both in decent shape, but I don't want to kill my husband with TOO much hiking around.
Would love some advice!
