This active tour is for the fast and light enthusiast.
We begin the tour at one of the best places to snorkel in Hawaii. The marine life is abundant at this first stop on the tour. We head south to tour a Kona coffee farm with samples of gourmet Kona coffee. Punalu’u Beach Park is next with turtles basking on a black sand beach and hiking to an ancient Hawaiian heiau (temple). We then drive to Volcanoes National Park. The views are the most spectacular at night when we visit Halema’uma’u (lava lake) where Pele lives. Camping inside of Volcanoes national park under a blanket of stars will finish this perfect day.
After breakfast we learn about Hawaiian culture and connection to the new land and lava. Get out the flashlight for Thurston Lava Tube to see how lava creates a cave. In Hilo we will see the stone that changed the history of these islands and the destiny of one of the greatest Hawaiian kings. A hike to Rainbow falls look outs and then on to boiling pots before hiking in the rain forest on the west side of the island. Back on the dry side of the island we will be swimming in the ocean at a white sand beach.
Getting there: We will pick you up at Kona International Airport or at our office in Kona
