Experience the might of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire, at Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park, home to two active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa, and seven ecological zones. A culturally significant place, the Park is also a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Preserve.
The epic day begins when we touch down on Hawaii Big Island after an early morning flight from Maui. We’ll proceed to the town of Hilo, take you along beautiful Banyan Drive, up to famed Rainbow Falls, and to splendid Queen Lydia Liliuokalani Gardens.
Next, we’ll continue to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where you will experience the powerful forces of nature at Halemaumau Crater and Kilauea Caldera. You’ll walk through 500-year-old Thurston Lava Tube, created by ancient lava flows. Be amazed as you experience active lava flows, extinct lava fields, and billowing steam vents. Learn about the different types of lava and see lava flows from the 19th century through the present. We’ll also visit the Jaggar Museum and gift shop and Hawaii Volcano Observatory.
Our guide will explain how the Hawaiian Islands were created as a result of volcanic activity which continues today. In fact, Kilauea is the world’s most active volcano and has been erupting since 1983, adding more landmass to Hawaii Big Island. You’ll experience a truly unique adventure and come away with an appreciation for the forces of nature that continue to shape Hawaii Big Island.
