Full description
Your tour will begin as you travel across Saddle Road between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, two of the tallest and largest volcanoes on earth. Your National Park Service certified guide will discuss the volcanology, geology, and history of these monstrous wonders, as well as providing in-depth narration on the various lava flows and flora and fauna that you’ll be passing by. You can then explore the Kaumana Caves, part of the lava tube system that brought lava 1.5 miles from Hilo-town in 1881. Afterwards, take a peek inside the dramatic cathedral-like space, before taking a quick drive through the quaint Hilo Town where you’ll drive along the historic waterfront before stopping at an adventure store to pick up supplies.

Next up you will head to the Mackenzie State Recreation Area. The highway here was closed by the marching 40-foot-tall wall of crumbly lava as it continued to the sea. You can take a hike along the now-closed highway, and then follow the lava flow through the pine forest to the altered coastline and cliffs, overlooking the new black-sand beach. A picnic-style lunch will be served here amongst the pine trees, weather permitting. After lunch, you will travel to the crown jewel of Hawaii, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Here you will visit the Kilauea Visitor’s Center, the Kilauea Iki Crater Overlook, and the Steaming Bluffs.

You will then hike out to the Keanakakoi Crater where you can walk over the most recent cracks and sink holes left behind by the historic eruption of 2018. You can also enjoy the views of Kilauea Caldera from the famous Volcano House. You will then visit the Volcano Winery, the southernmost winery in the United States. The Winery remained open daily throughout the eruption despite hundreds of earthquakes every day, and you will be able to take a private tour of the vineyard and winery before sampling up to eight different types of wines, all with a unique Hawaiian flare. The Volcano Winery also has estate grown teas to taste, and soft drinks and water are also included. After sampling beverages, you’ll enjoy a hearty Hawaiian-style BBQ dinner with a complimentary glass of your choice of Volcano Winery wine or other beverage.
