Travel back in time to explore the natural forces responsible for the creation of Hawaiian Islands: the ancient volcanoes. This tour will take you through Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park and up to the summit of Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
Your local guide will pick you up from your hotel on your way to visit Rainbow Falls. Prior to entering Hawaii Volcanoes National Park you will have the option to visit the black-sand beach of Punalu’u, where the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle rest.
You then embark on an expedition through the famous Thurston Lava Tube, a prehistoric tunnel where a river of lava once flowed. Your adventure will take you past steam vents and old lava flows along the Chain of Craters Road on your way to the Holei Sea Arch. Take an optional trip to see the Puu Loa petroglyphs, considered sacred to the natives of Hawai’i. Along the way, you’ll see unique native flora such as the fiery evergreen o’hia lehua flowers, which flourish in the mineral-rich soil.
Before you head back to your hotel, we will catch a glimpse of the lava glow at Halemaumau Crater.
