In this national park, different from any other around, you will visit Halema’uma’u Crater, volcanic steam vents, the educational Kilauea Visitor Center, miles of Thurston Lava Tube, and Volcano House, where views of the crater are transformational. Madame Pele has been busy lately and you can peer down into the Halema’uma’u caldera to see the lava lake fill.
See Kilauea Iki Overlook, Kealakomo Overlook, and Devastation Trail. We will stop at a signature Big Island snack spot to grab a locally made treat for now and sweet snack for later. Then, explore the flora and fauna of tropical gardens. Here, guests may choose to enjoy a sit-down meal for purchase (not included).
As we head back to Hilo, you will see the famous Rainbow Falls as color fills the mist around the twin cascading 80-foot waterfalls.
Some of the most well-known legends surrounding Hawaii involve volcanoes. Your pilot on the 45-minute flight will share some of these legends and how they are an integral part of the culture even now. It was just 2018 that Kilauea poured lava out over the southeast part of the island – you can hear more about this event as you fly over the still-steaming lava vents.
