About the Grand Circle Island Tour

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 leaves you in awe of nature’s brute power and gives you a deeper understanding of the island’s colorful, volcano-inspired legends.
