Description

Experience the breathtaking beauty of the Big Island on our immersive Big Island Big Volcano Adventure from Kona. Departing from Kona, our full-day guided tour begins with a scenic drive along Highway 19, offering glimpses of Waimea's historic cattle ranches that dot the landscape. As we journey eastward, marvel at the rugged beauty of the Hamakua Coast, shaped by millennia of volcanic activity and coastal erosion. Stop at Laupahoehoe to witness the dramatic cliffs sculpted by the relentless power of the Pacific Ocean. Our adventure continues through lush jungle roads to Akaka Falls, where you'll be captivated by the awe-inspiring 442-foot cascade into the Kolekole gulch. Rejuvenate with a delicious lunch at Hilo Sharks in Honomu, savoring fresh local wraps before embarking on the next leg of our journey. Traveling along scenic backroads, we reach Hilo, a charming town nestled between jungle gorges and epic ocean vistas. From there, venture into the heart of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, home to the legendary Kilauea volcano. Explore the summit caldera and traverse the east rift zone, witnessing the raw power of volcanic activity up close. Our adventure concludes with a scenic drive along Saddle Road, offering panoramic views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. With stops at various elevations, you'll traverse diverse landscapes, from lush rainforests to high desert plains, before returning to Kona.
