Epic Island Volcano Small Group Journey

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet up with your group in the morning at the Kona headquarters of Hawaii Forest & Trail. Pickup from select hotels is always available with prior arrangements. You’ll then head out for a day that’s jam-packed with adventure, tasty Hawaiian food, and plenty of sightseeing.

    Start the day right by fueling up with an included breakfast made with local, sustainably-sourced, Hawaiian ingredients. You’ll then spend the next several hours exploring a range of fun-filled activities that blend outdoor adventure with nature and Hawaiian history and culture. Head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you’ll hike an active volcano. You’ll also stop by Kona Joe’s, an island coffee farm where you can learn more about the growing and production process.

    As the day continues you’ll scout for sea turtles during a stop at Punaluu, a black-sand beach, and get an “insider’s” look at how lava tubes are formed as you venture into a private cave system. Before the day is over you’ll also visit a 1,000 acre tropical fruit farm and admire the picturesque Rainbow Falls from on top of a private viewing deck. In between stops you’ll also receive included snacks and have time for a gourmet “farm to fork” lunch produced using local Hawaiian ingredients. At the end of the day you’ll either return to your original departure point or receive a drop-off at select hotels.
