Volcano Tours On The Big Island Of Hawaiʻi
Visit Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, Black Sand Beaches, Kilauea & more
Aptly nicknamed “the Big Island”, Hawaiʻi Island boasts 4,000 square miles of explorable land. The youngest of the archipelago, the Big Island is the result of five volcanoes, two of which are still active today! This ever-growing island is already so large that it could fit all the other major islands within its coastline – twice! Today, Hawaiʻi Island has the most active volcano in the world – the Kilauea Caldera. Kilauea has been erupting continuously since 1983 and in the spring of 2018, the lower east rift zone expelled the largest amount of lava ever recorded in the islands since record-keeping began in 1794! Now quiet, the skies over Hawaiʻi Island are clear of volcanic haze and its new coastline has cooled, but the event served as a reminder of just how powerful Pele, the Hawaiʻian goddess of the volcano, can be.
Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime exploration of one of nature’s most curious and thrilling phenomena. This land tour of Kilauea is a top priority for your Hawaiian island vacation. Explore the rare geological wonder from the blackened, razor-sharp lava fields to the festering boiling pots of Pele, the volcano goddess’s, lair. The views of the great Pacific will leave you breathless as you take in the panorama from the mountain’s slope. The gaping crater and lava-scarred land are sights unique to volcanic activity, and set this national park apart from any other in the US. With stops at the Kilauea Visitor Center and information and ancient Hawaiian lore from certified guides, this educational tour is fun and interactive for visitors of all ages!
Let yourself get lost in the magic of an enchanting night sky with an unparalleled stargazing experience. There is no better place to let darkness emboss you and stars enchant you than stargazing from the side of the world’s tallest volcano. Breath in the crisp, cool air of the calm evening. Experience the romance of the night sky with a loved one or bring the family and get swept up in the storytelling of the legends of the land. Offering a glimpse into the heavens with views unobscured by light pollution, celestial sighting from the slopes of Mauna Kea is an astronomer’s dream and a must-do for visitors to the Big Island.
Touring Big Island by helicopter should be on every vacationer’s bucket list. Cover so much more ground over this huge landscape and see areas that you can only see from the sky. Look down in a volcano, see hidden waterfalls and fly new coastlines. Itʻs all available for you to enjoy.
