Tour Details

Volcano & Highlights of Hilo Adventure

Visit both Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the city of Hilo on this small group guided tour, seeing Kilauea Caldera and exploring the volcanic formations along the Chain of Crater's Road including Thurston Lava Tube. Thereafter, you'll visit a local chocolate factory for samples and coffee tasting before seeing the spectacular Rainbow Falls and a black sand beach.

Explore volcanic formations of the world renowned Kilauea volcano on a guided journey to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Experience volcanic steam vents while taking in extraordinary views of Kilauea caldera where the summit caldera has grown in size and drastically changed the landscape. Optional hikes are available based on the group's interest to experience the lava fields, an ancient lava tube and the native rain forest. You'll then 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.

Thereafter you'll take a scenic drive through downtown Hilo and stop at a chocolate factory to sample locally grown coffee and Big Island treats. Then, continue on to Rainbow Falls, one of Hilo's most famous waterfalls.

Conclude the day with a trip down the gorgeous Keaukaha coastline. Along the way, visit a beautiful black sand beach, home to Hawaiian green sea turtles. Book this tour to a true treasure of the Hawaiian islands!

Please Note: Lunch options include ham, turkey, pastrami or veggie sandwiches. Please provide your meal preference above. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has reopened after the exciting 2018 eruption of Kilauea volcano. Volcanic activity is closely monitored as guest safety is the top priority.

Amazing time!

All I can say is WOW! Josh was such an incredible, funny, and and entertaining your guide. He supplied us with unforgettable memories and so much knowledge about Hilo. It was probably one of the best tours my husband and I took during our time.

Fantastic And Action Packed Day!
May 14, 2019
I highly recommend this excursion. Our guide was a native who enjoyed sharing his experiences and knowledge about Volcanoes National Park and the Hilo área. He packed way more into this day than any of the cruise ship excursions ever would. After touring the park including several trails among the lava fields and sulfur cliffs, and the promised stops at Rainbow Falls and the chocolate factory, we got to experience a lava tube and a walk on a black sand beach. Fantastic day!

Very Good Experience
August 27, 2018
My partner & I enjoyed our excursion on the island of Hilo very much. Unfortunately, since the volcano was active, we were not allowed to see it up close, but our guide, Jill, did everything possible to make our trip as informative and interesting as possible. Small group, delicious lunch, and luxurious van made this tour one of our favorites on the islands
