Venture into the territory of Pele—the fiery-tempered volcano goddess—during an awe-inspiring day trip to Volcanoes National Park. After a short flight to the Big Island, witness the beauty and power of nature on display at notable sights, including Rainbow Falls and the Kilauea Iki Crater.

From your hotel, enjoy a convenient pickup, and make your way to board a quick flight to the Big Island. Upon arrival, climb into your awaiting bus and cruise though the quaint and historic town of Hilo. Stop at Rainbow Falls and marvel at the impressive 80-foot (24-m) waterfall cascading down in a tranquil turquoise pool.

Your next stop takes you to Volcanoes National Park, a designated World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve. Here, Kilauea—the youngest volcano in the Hawaiian islands—steams and simmers beneath a desolate field of blackened stone. Peer over the 3,000-foot (914-meter) crater, looking past the billowing smoke to the red glow of the molten lava below. Enjoy an optional lunch before traveling on.

Continue exploring the history and power of the volcano at the Jagger Museum, where you can view films and exhibits about past eruptions. Then wander the park’s extensive network of trails and stop by the Lava Tree State Monument—a grove of trees petrified by a 1790 lava flow through the forest—before heading back to the airport for your return flight to Honolulu.
