Private Volcanoes National Park, Black Sand Beach and Winery

This beautiful island is home to one of the most active volcano systems in the world that have wreaked devastation both by lava and the resulting tsunamis. After this latest eruption, the island is now larger and differently shaped.

Set off on your private tour in your comfortable Mercedes Benz Sprinter featuring all the amenities with your friendly and knowledgeable local guide who will provide a wealth of information to you throughout the day. Your minivan is stocked with water and snacks to keep you going all day long between stops.

See the best of Volcanoes National Park and stop at the Visitor's Center, Kilauea Volcano Overlook, Halema'uma'u Crater, steam vents, Kilauea Iki Crater (60-year-old lava lake), the Thurston Lava Tube and Fern Forest. Touch real lava rocks and view a cinder cone and lava tree that are remnants of what has been left behind after the destruction of the lava. View volcanic formations of the world-renowned Kilauea volcano and see volcanic steam vents while taking in extraordinary views of Kilauea caldera where the summit caldera has grown in size and drastically changed the landscape. Experience the lava fields and view other volcanic formations along Chain of Crater's Road and witness the raw power of the volcano and the beauty and destruction that it leaves behind.

Many options await your choice after leaving the park and include Rainbow Falls, a scenic waterfall that is 80 feet tall and almost 100 feet in diameter where the Wailuku River rushes into a large pool below.

The Volcano Winery offers wine tasting in paradise and is just a sip away on the Big Island. Taste local wines inspired by volcanic fire and the bounty of the island. Tropical fruits like yellow guava and the exotic jaboticaba berry are blended with traditional wine grapes and transformed into vibrant creations that capture the playful spirit of Hawaiian paradise. The laid-back and relaxed atmosphere is the perfect place to try them (flights are approximately $10-$20).

The Volcano House could be your stop for lunch (not included). Combining breathtaking views and fresh local ingredients, the restaurant is located on the edge of the Kilauea caldera. While here, make a stop in their gift shop, one of the best and most unique you will find during your day.

Hilo Coffee Farm is located on 24 beautiful acres halfway between Hilo and Volcanoes National Park. Watch as they roast and package all their gourmet Hawaiian coffee, teas, chocolates. At the tasting bar (the Latte Da Bar at The Mill) you can sample the 100% Hawaiian coffees of the day and enjoy coffee drinks, smoothies, milkshakes, and ice cream.

If you would like to stop at the Hilo Orchid Farm you will discover the only nursery located on the windward side of the beautiful Big Island at an elevation of 1,000 feet between Kurtistown and Mountain View. The combination of nighttime showers, moderate sun, and routine trade winds makes it an ideal environment for growing a variety of orchids. Founded in 1991, Hilo Orchid Farm has grown from a small local nursery to a major supplier for many clients throughout the country. The farm resides on thirty-six acres of land with five acres of environmentally controlled greenhouses. By incorporating modern greenhouse technology and cutting-edge breeding programs, Hilo Orchid Farm has established a reputation for producing only the highest quality plants.

At Big Island Candies you can tempt your sweet tooth where this business began in 1977 and is now a popular spot for both locals and tourists. Although gift-giving is practiced all over the world, nowhere is it as deeply ingrained in the culture as it is in Hawaii. Specifically, the Japanese concept of "omiyage" is widely practiced, which imbues gift-giving with a sense of place. As an expression of gratitude toward the recipient, omiyage lies at the very heart of everything they do at Big Island Candies. Whatever is produced must look good, taste good, and bring happiness to others.

Finally, you will reach the Iconic Punalu'u Black Sand Beach which is situated 28 miles south of the National Park and offers a completely different climate zone that avoids most of the rain that Hilo and Puna often receive. This beach is the most famous black sand beach of Hawaii and another reason for the popularity of this beach is that you can often see endangered Hawksbill turtles and green turtles basking in the sun on the beach.

Book this private, 7-hour experience today to take in some of the very best the Big Island has to offer. You will be guaranteed to end your day with panoramic pictures and memories that will last a lifetime!
