Circle the Island together with a certified tour guide in a spacious, air conditioned van on the biggest Hawaiian Island. During this full day tour, you will cover tropical rain forests, a waterfall, the dry lava deserts, fertile coffee farm regions, indulge in locally made chocolates, visit Hilo and Kailua-Kona and many more highlights that the island has to offer.
Your local guide will take you along this incredible, fully narrated journey across 7 different climate zones and around the tallest Hawaiian mountain and the most massive active volcano in the world.
Experience lunch with locals at a popular Hawaiian restaurant. Our lunch stop includes many different options for guests to choose from. Everything from a typical Hawaiian plate lunch to burgers and fries. Feeling adventurous? Try the famous Loco Moco.
You will also visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park* and Kilauea, the youngest volcano on the island, and one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Even though it is very unlikely that you will actually see lava erupting (mostly due to safety restrictions) there are many signs of volcanic activity and fascinating lava formations from recent and ancient eruptions.
Learn about the rich Hawaiian history, culture, religion, and the role of the ali’i (royals) from Hawaii Island and their influence in today’s Hawaiian Renaissance. Your guide will also provide you with insights into the island’s geography and how it affects almost every aspect of the contrasting and fragile ecosystems across the island and it’s native/endemic plants and animals.
