Oahu to Big Island - Volcano Adventure

This is quite possibly the most unique excursion in Hawaii. You’ll spend the day exploring the distinctive geography of Hawaii’s Big Island. Visiting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is both exciting an informative as you learn about and witness the Earth’s most active volcano. Seismic volcano activity has been continuous, and an entire culture has developed around it. Not only will you see the world’s most active volcano, but also the world’s largest. Plus, you’ll enjoy great photo opportunities of volcanic craters, lava beds, steam vents and lava tubes.

This is a spectacular Big Island volcano tour that includes plenty of diverse scenery. In addition to visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, this tour also takes you to one of the Big Island’s most beautiful waterfalls – Rainbow Falls – surrounded by lush, tropical foliage.
