What You Can Expect

Big Island in 3 Days: Snorkeling, Hiking, Camping and Volcanoes National Park

Lush Tropical Valley

You don't have to wait long to get right into the action. This Big Island camping tour begins when you’re picked up from your Waikoloa or Kona hotel, and it isn’t long before you’re snorkeling the reefs off the Waikoloa coast and hiking past waterfalls.

Afterward, you’ll stop in Hilo to view the Naha Stone—an important Hawaiian relic—where King Kamehameha had to prove himself by lifting the stone from the Earth. At night, after swimming in tidepools facing the sea in the hours just before sunset, you can hear the crash of the waves from your tent before waking to a brilliant sunrise.

And that's only the first day. Read the Itinerary section below for a detailed schedule of activities.

This tour was amazing! We had a great tour guide who took such a good care of us. We have seen all important things on the island on this tour. We had good food, nice company, good weather, great things to see and our tour guide had a big knowledge about the whole island. Thank you so much Katie for the great time!

This camping adventure on the Big Island was the highlight of our two weeks in Hawaii.I wish there were similar opportunities on Maui and Oahu, we would have done the same there. Our guide katie was amazing. Her knowlege of the island history as well as geology and native [and non-native] plants was in deptha nd of great interest to us. She paced the trip well and bercause of her guidance we were then able to take advantage of out of the way state parks or beach access on the other islands. Katie was special!

We enjoyed this tour very much. This island is so different, every 1/2 hour the scenery and climate changes and there is so much to see. Our guide was casual and fun to get to know. The shower was a little rustic on the second night, but it is a camping trip after all. Enjoyed the first nights camping better, but went to a great restaurant in Hilo on the second night as per our guides recommendation. Take an extra sweater for the Volcano National Park evening as well as your wind jacket as it was very cold that night.
