KapohoKine Adventures - Zippin' Volcano (from Kona/Kohala)
This is a fun tour that combines a zipline tour with a volcano adventure! Departing from the Kona side of the island, you'll enjoy a scenic drive along Saddle Road with views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes on your way to Hilo. Drive along this quaint town's waterfront before arriving at the zipline check-in location. Then you're off to new heights at this exciting 8-line zipline course. Soar over multiple different waterfalls and lush scenery. Your certified tour guide will guide you over one of the longest ziplines on the Big Island, mearusing more than 2,400 feet in length! The zipline trek also includes the only side-by-side dual-track zipline on the island.
After your zipline adventure, head out to explore the island. The tour takes you onto the 4-mile Onomea Scenic Route for some of the best views in all of Hawaii. Enjoy views of several waterfalls, springs, streams and gorgeous tropical gardens before arriving at Akaka Falls State Park, where you'll see the largest accessible waterfall on the Big Island. Walk along a paved path through a lush rainforest to Akaka Falls, an impressive 442-foot waterfall that plunges down a sheer cliff.
Then head back down the Hamakua Coast and stop at another beautiful waterfall - Rainbow Falls - an 80-foot cascade. Nearby are Kaumana Caves, which are part of the lava tube system that brought lava 1.5 miles from Hilo town in 1881. Take a peak into the caves' fascinating cathedral-like space.
The next stop is Volcano Winery, the southernmost winery in the United States! Here you can try up to eight different types of wines, all with a unique Hawaiian touch. They also have estate grown teas to sample. Water and soft drinks are also included. After sampling beverages, enjoy a delicious Hawaiian-style BBQ lunch with a complimentary glass of your choice of Volcano Winery wine or other beverage. Finally, complete your day viewing the glow from the current volcanic eruption if it's available from a safe distance before returning.
