Description

Uncover the history and beauty of Hawaii on this 260-mile (418-km) bus tour of the Big Island’s most notable sights. Drop in at a Kona coffee plantation, see shimmering Kealakekua Bay, and witness the awesome power of Mother Nature at Volcanoes National Park.

Your adventure begins with a drive along the lava fields of the Kona coast to historic Kealakekua Bay, where British explorer Captain Cook first arrived in 1778. Learn about Kona’s rich volcanic soil and ideal climate conditions—fertile ground for coffee since 1840—and discover this legacy firsthand as you tour a coffee plantation.

Continue on to Volcanoes National Park, known locally as Pele’s Playground after the hot-tempered Hawaiian volcano goddess. Explore the exhibits at the Jagger Museum for a primer on the islands’ geology and natural history. Then marvel over the crater of Halema’uma’u from a sheltered location, and visit the overlook that offers views of Kilauea—one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

From walking through the Thurston Lava Tube—a cave with stepped walls formed by flowing lava—to touring Big Island Candies—creator of the much-loved macadamia nut shortbread cookie—this tour offers a comprehensive circle of the best of the Big Island.
