Volcano & Highlights of Hilo Adventure with Private Transportation

Visit both Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the city of Hilo on this small group guided tour, seeing the active Kilauea Caldera and exploring the volcanic formations along the Chain of Crater’s Road including Thurston Lava Tube. Thereafter, you’ll immerse your senses in a tropical orchid nursery, visit a local chocolate factory for samples and coffee tasting before seeing the spectacular Rainbow Falls.

Explore volcanic formations of the world renowned Kilauea volcano on a guided journey to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Experience volcanic steam vents while taking in extraordinary views of Kilauea caldera where the summit caldera has grown in size and drastically changed the landscape. Enjoy a morning walk in the cool mist of the rain forest to explore an ancient lava tube. You’ll then view other volcanic formations along Chain of Crater’s Road and perhaps even witness the raw power of an active eruption.

Thereafter you’ll take a scenic drive through what to see in Hilo, first stopping at a local orchid nursery and heading downtown to a chocolate factory to sample locally grown coffee and Big Island treats. Then, continue on to Rainbow Falls, one of Hilo’s most famous waterfalls.

Conclude the day with a stop at Liliuokalani Gardens for views of Hilo Bay and the expansive island landscape. As time permits, stroll around the tranquil Japanese gardens featuring pathways winding through fishponds and across bridges lined with pagodas and rock gardens.
