Adult: £208 Child: (4-11 yrs) £181
Spend the day visiting Volcanoes and visit our Volcanoes National Park for what will definitely be the experience of a lifetime!
The excursion begins as we travel between two of the world’s largest mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. The region between these volcanoes is locally known as the Saddle and is home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the world. After a brief stop for lunch at Mauna Kea State Park, we continue east towards Hilo.
Included in the day’s itinerary is a stop at one of two lava tubes. Lava tubes are caves that once carried molten rock from the eruption site down towards the ocean. In addition to offering fascinating insights into how Hawaii’s eruptive history, these passages also offer excellent opportunities to test our trusty flashlights on a subterranean adventure.
Leaving Mauna Loa behind, we make our final ascent to the summit of Kilauea inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our Interpretive Guides will lead you through the must-see spots and hidden gems of this World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Preserve. As conditions change daily, we tailor your experience to the current eruptive events. The summit caldera, steam vents, cinder fields, and native rainforests are all on our “must see” list.
After exploring the natural wonders of this World Heritage site, we’ll check current conditions to see which eruptive site is most active. Our choices are Kalapana to witness the awesome power of lava as it enters the ocean at sunset, or Halemaumau Crater which contains a hidden lake of molten rock which glows after dark. Also included in the evening’s itinerary is a delicious picnic dinner. This is an incredible way to experience the dynamic energy of Kilauea, the most active volcano in the world.
Please Note: This tour is only available from and on the Island of HAWAII (Koa), also known as ‘Big Island’.
