Visit one of the youngest and most active volcanoes on our planet: see the Earth be created right before your eyes! See attractions like the Punaluu Black Sand Beach and the Jaggar Museum and just enjoy the view over Kealakekua Bay on this tour.
What to Expect
This day trip takes you to the youngest and most active volcanoes on the planet. There, you'll have the opportunity to see the elemental stages of Earth's history, such as the creation and destruction of the ground. Experience the creation of Kilauea, pass through a recently frozen lake of lava, and learn the difference between Pahoehoe and A'a. The breathtaking natural environment will enchant you - it's like a real-life version of Dante's Inferno.
Sulphurous smoke rises from the ground; glowing lava spouts out from Kilauea and streams into the nearby Pacific, where it hisses, fumes, and congeals into rock. In the background, the snow-topped peak of Mauna Kea looms in the crystal-clear blue sky. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, home of the Hawaiian goddess Pele, is doubtlessly one of the most mythical and impressive places anywhere on earth.
