A Geographical Exploration of Hawaii's Youngest Island
This is a tour unlike any other. Spend the day exploring the unique geography of Hawaii’s “Big Island”. A visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park will inform you about the seismic activity that’s been a constant on the Big Island and the culture that sprang up around it. You’ll see Mauna Loa, the world’s largest volcano, and Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano. You’ll also see other dormant volcanoes, lava beds, and steam vents while discovering the legends meant to explain these natural phenomena.
While there is no guarantee of a red-hot lava flow sighting, you may see a smoldering crater or a steam vent. By the tour’s end you’ll know exactly how and why volcanoes occur. You’ll also have the opportunity to take in some unique scenery along the way.
Occasionally certain sections of the park will be closed to visitors when Kilauea volcano is emitting high levels of dangerous gas. Volcanic fumes are hazardous. Also, for people with respiratory or heart problems, pregnant women, infants, and young children, a visit to the park is not recommended.
*Your safety and comfort are our #1 priority. Tour highlights are subject to change without notice and may vary at tour driver discretion in order to take into account National Park Service advisories, weather advisories, traffic advisories, road closures and detours, venue hours of operations, etc.. Tour features can change daily as we cannot predict weather and lava viewing conditions. We do not guarantee sighting of lava flows. Surface lava flows may be present but may not be visible due to environmental conditions or time constraints. Passengers with asthma or other respiratory problems should instead consider the Big Island Grand Circle Island Tour to avoid potential health problems from sulfur gases emitted from the volcano. If conditions permit, walking/hiking on rough, uneven lava surfaces is involved. Wear sturdy, covered walking shoes. Weather is unpredictable. Anticipate both sun and rain conditions.
