Evening Volcano Explorer From Hilo
From US$155,21
Experience the geological wonders of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the light of day and after sunset with this tour from Hilo. Visit a village buried by an eruption and a black sand beach, and learn about the park’s explosive history as you explore steaming craters, vents, and lava flows with a ranger-trained guide. Taste volcanic wine along with a delicious dinner at Volcano Winery, and watch for molten lava and other activity as the sun sets across Mt. Kilauea.
What to Expect
Meet your driver and guide in downtown Hilo, and begin with a startling look at the power of Hawaii's active volcanoes. Visit the site of Kalapana, a former village completely destroyed by lava flows, and the island’s newest black sand beach at Kaimu. See the Painted Church of St. Damien, a sacred site that was moved several times to save it from advancing lava.

Enter Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, stopping at the historic Jagger Museum to learn more about the Big Island’s geologic history. Explore the park’s diverse topography with your ranger guide, from lush rain forest to simmering craters and hissing steam vents. Taste the product of the area’s mineral-rich soil at nearby Volcano Winery, where your group will get a private tour of vineyards and tea orchards before sitting down to dinner and a glass of wine. Head back into the park before the sun sets to watch the changing light wash over Mt. Kilauea and look for glowing lava flows and other volcanic activity.

Fun tour, great guide!

An interesting and fun tour, with a very talkative, knowledgeable, irreverent and funny guide, Henry, who also knows the history of Hawaii, and that's very important for context. Went to the different lava flows, the steams, the lava tube, and the view of the glowing...More
