Kilauea Iki Crater

One of the most spectacular views in the entire park is from this 400 foot high crater.

Parker Ranch

One of the oldest and largest working cattle ranches in the US. It was founded by John Palmer Parker who had helped Kamehameha I control the island’s population of feral bulls. 

Hamakua Coast

Home to lush tropical rainforests, beautiful waterfalls and breathtaking coastline views. It is known for the volcanic mountain Mauna Kea and its lack of sandy beaches.

Rainbow Falls State Park*

This breathtaking waterfall cascades from 80 feet over a natural lava cave, the mythological home to Hina and ancient Hawaiian goddess. The waterfall gets it name from the spectacular rainbows frequently seen here.

Big Island Candies*

A true taste of the island's delights that include the renowned chocolate dipped macadamia nut shortbread cookie

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park*

Home to Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes and Mauna Loa, the world's most massive subaerial volcano.  Witness dramatic volcanic landscapes, rare flora and fauna and visit lava tubes, volcanic craters, and much more! 

Crater Rim Drive

Experience the extreme as you drive around Kilauea’s caldera and pass from the rainforest into desert-like surroundings

Fern Tree Jungle

Take in the beauty of the various fern plants and trees in the unspoiled environment as it must have looked to the ancient Hawaiians

Steam Vents

Witness the steam coming out of the cracks in the ground in a grass field.

Thurston Lava Tube*

Experience walking through a 500-year-old lava tube where molten lava once flowed. You will exit into a beautiful lush tropical rainforest, an excellent place to stop and listen to the birds of the island.

Punaluu Black Sand Beach*

This famous black sand beach is an unforgettable sight, where coconut palms frame the ocean and Hawaiian Green Sea turtles bask in the warm Hawaiian sun.

Coffee Plantations*

Picturesque farms where the gourmet Kona coffee beans are exclusively grown.

Kealakekua Bay Overlook

Take in the panoramic view of the bay where the first westerner, Capt. James Cook, landed in the Hawaiian Islands. The bay was of great importance in ancient Hawaiian history and retains its significance as marine life conservation district today.

Kailua-Kona

This was where the first capital was established after the consolidation of the Hawaiian Islands. It later functioned as the retreat of the royal family.

This daylong trip showcases the Big Island’s breathtaking diversity—from lush tropical rainforests to world-famous coffee fields to volatile volcanoes. The wraparound island adventure begins at Parker Ranch, then travels to Rainbow Falls State Park, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Punaluu Black Sand Beach and past the world-renowned Kona coffee fields. At the first stop at Rainbow Falls State Park, soaring waterfalls cascade from a natural volcanic backdrop. Next is a visit to Big Island Candies, famous for its chocolate-dipped, macadamia nut shortbread cookie.

Of course, an exploration around the Big Island would hardly be complete without a visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to encounter Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the most massive volcano on the globe. Seeing these untamed volcanic wonders will leave you in awe of nature’s brute power and give you a deeper understanding of the island’s colorful, volcano-inspired legends. After leaving the park, the tour heads to Punaluu Black Sand Beach, where sea turtles often nest, then you will be off to see the world-renowned Kona coffee plantations. The adventure winds down with gorgeous scenes of Kealekekua Bay, the first place Westerner Capt. James Cook landed in the Hawaiian Islands. A truly unforgettable experience!
