What You Can Expect

Volcano National Park Small Group Twilight Tour

Volcano National Park Small Group Twilight Tour

Your 12-hour small-group tour through Hawaii's diverse ecosystems and climate zones begins by meeting your guide. Travel between two of the world's largest mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, en route to the active volcanoes, where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of red lava.

Piece together the puzzle of Hawaii as you journey across its molten history. The region between the two volcanoes is locally known as the Saddle and is home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the world. After a brief stop for lunch at Mauna State Park, continue east towards Hilo. Stop to explore the Kaumana Cave, before the final descent into Hawaii's second largest town. The Kaumana Cave is a lava tube that once carried molten rock from Mauna Loa's upper rift zones to the ocean, and now provides an excellent subterranean adventure.

Ascend to the summit of Kilauea inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Follow your professional guide to the must-see spots and hidden gems of this World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Preserve. As conditions change daily, your experience will be tailored to suit the current eruptive events.

Explore the natural wonders of the park, including the summit caldera, steam vents, cinder fields and native rainforrests, then head to Kalapana to witness the incredible power of lava as it enters the ocean at sunset. Since Mother Nature is always changing, it’s not a guarantee to see the lava flow firsthand, but your guide will do their best to ensure you do if conditions make it possible. Also included in the evening's itinerary is a delicious sit-down dinner in the heart of Pahoa, a historic town that has maintained the rustic ambiance of an old plantation village.

Please note: The hiking on this Big Island volcano tour is moderate to difficult, though there are periodic breaks for up to 1.5 hours.
