Kailani Tours Hawaii - Deluxe Volcano Experience
Departing from the Kona side of the island, this deluxe volcano tour takes you to the Big Island’s iconic volcano and eruption sites, as well as other points of interest. Travel in luxury and comfort along Saddle Road to the other side of the island. Enjoy a gourmet catered breakfast at the base of the tallest volcano in the world – Mauna Kea! Enjoy views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa’s ancient lava flows as the landscape switches from arid to tropical. Near Hilo, you will have the chance to take in views of Rainbow Falls, a majestic 90-foot waterfall.
From Hilo, journey south to Puna in the lower east rift zone of Kilauea volcano. This next stop, Fissure 8, is a truly moving experience. Visiting one of the most active sites of the 2018 eruption, you will witness the incredible power, beauty and destruction of the recent lava flows that destroyed an entire town and neighborhood.
Leaving Leilani Estates, enjoy a catered gourmet lunch at Volcano Garden Arts, a tropical garden tucked into the rain forest town of Volcano. After lunch, the tour continues on to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which is a must-see on the island. The tour highlights all the park’s top sights, including Chain of Craters Road, natural steam vents and views of the new Halama'uma'u Crater, also changed since 2018.
