Today after a breakfast at the hotel, you will head off for your first excursion which is a Volcano National Park Twilight Tour.
You will be collected from the hotel by our local guide and taken to the Volcano.
Journey deep into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and explore the Big Island's lava-fueled ecosystem. During this Big Island volcano tour, you'll hike on maintained trails to see the active Kilauea, some of the rarest plants on earth, and breathtaking sunset views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. You'll stay energised with lunch and dinner at restaurants in towns near the park.
Start this incredible 12-hour tour with a visit to Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, which are two of the world’s largest volcanos. The area is very special as it is home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the world.
Enjoy a spot of lunch at Mauna State Park, continue east towards Hilo, where you will explore a lava tube. Be spellbound by the incredible passage which once carried molten rock from Mauna Loa’s upper rift zones to the ocean.
From there, you will be taken into the Hawaiian Volcano National Park via the Crater Rim Drive. In the park you will visit many interesting points including the active volcano Kilauea. You will be led by a guide on a moderate hike, where you will break to look at points of interest in the park.
It's not guaranteed that you get to see lava flowing firsthand on this hike, but your guide will do their best to take you to prime viewing spots if the conditions are safe. When Kilauea isn't erupting, you actually get to walk the summit caldera, peer down steam vents, and marvel at the cinder fields. Such dramatic displays aren't the only natural wonders of the park. You'll also explore trails carved into a native rainforest before.
You will then be taken to a spot where you'll get to see active lava glowing at twilight.
Your Big Island volcano tour is topped off with a delicious sit-down dinner in the heart of Pahoa, an old plantation village.
You will then be taken back to your hotel for the rest of the evening.
