Cruise along the wild and scenic Hamakua coastline on your way to Akaka Falls State Park. Here, it's just a short walk along a tropical rainforest loop to see two stunning waterfalls. The first is Kahuna Falls which sits 100 feet tall, then, as you continue along the path you'll see Akaka Falls as it cascades 442-feet into a gorge below.
Continue down to the coast to the lush landscapes of Onomea Bay, and take in the views from the Onomea Scenic Outlook. Don't forget your camera to capture this special moment.
The next stop is the highlight of the day for many guests – Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Start with the Kilauea Visitor Centre for more information on the park. Then, see the magnificent Kilauea Caldera, and take the Chain of Craters Road, which ends where the lava has reclaimed the road. You'll also visit the Thurston Lava Tube, a 500-year-old lava cave formed by ancient lava flows.
Lunch is included in your tour, with a sit-down meal at Kilauea Lodge. Choose from a Big Island Beef Burger with fries, Ranch Turkey Wrap with fries, Nicoise salad, or Tofu burger with fries.
As the day comes to a close, drive along the scenic saddle road that passes between the island's two largest mountains – Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. It's the perfect, end to a wonderful day out.
