Visit the birthplace of the Hawaiian Islands on this full-day volcano adventure from Kona. Travel along famous Saddle Road and see the sites, featuring a stop in Hilo, Hawaii’s second-largest city. Also, discover a lava tube and enjoy a picnic lunch en route to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the state’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend the afternoon exploring the park before dinner at Kilauea Lodge, an award-winning restaurant located in nearby Volcano Village. Finally, take in the fiery glow of the Kilauea Volcano, the most active volcano in Hawaii.
What to Expect

Begin with complimentary late-morning pickup from your Kona- or Waikoloa-area accommodation for a full-day, guided tour to visit one of the worlds most active volcanoes.

Enjoy an afternoon and evening of volcano exploration from the comfort of an air-conditioned SUV.

Tour departures vary with the seasons, however typical Grand Volcano Adventure tours begin late morning from Kona and Waikoloa Hotel areas. We then make our way along the south coast of the island, stopping to visit multiple historic sites along the way and enjoy a picnic lunch. We then make our way up the slopes of Kilauea Volcano, the world's most active, to see first hand the how a volcano can change the landscape. Here we see the results of explosive volcanic events.

Once at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, we visit popular locations such as the steam vents at Kilauea Caldera, Kilauea Iki crater, Chain of Craters Road, and the opportunity to explore areas on foot as well.

Following an afternoon of exploring, it’s time to sit down and enjoy a comfortable dining experience just a few miles from summit. Meals are included in the price of the tour and once dinner is complete, we begin our drive back to the hotels.

This is the way to see the volcano.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Wonderful personalised tour of the Big Island

Right off the bat Jon introduces himself when he picks you up by addressing you by name. He took at stab at addressing every member of the party by name and got them all correct. I knew then that not only is Jon phenomenally good...More
