On the Big Island, explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in flight and on foot. See 3 volcanoes, explore Thurston Lava Tube, sink your toes into the black sand at Punaluʻu Beach, and sip award-winning coffee.
In a Bell 407 helicopter, soar over the famous Kona coffee district and skirt 3 towering volcanoes: Hualālai, Mauna Kea, and Mauna Loa. Upon arrival in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, your pilot searches out the day’s activity—perhaps flying by a forest fire or a stream of glowing lava—usually only accessible from the air.
After landing in Hilo, meet your expert interpretive guide and travel through the remote and rugged landscape of Kaʻū—home to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. At the black-sand Punaluʻu Beach, walk across crystal-fine sand and search for basking sea turtles. In Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, take short hikes and explore must-see spots including Jaggar Museum and Halemaumau Crater.
Learn how powerful forces of nature shaped the landscape, explore Thurston Lava Tube, and hear legends and mythic stories with a focus on Pele—the Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning, wind, and volcanoes. At Kaʻū Coffee Mill sample and shop for award-winning fresh coffee as well as locally grown macadamia nuts, honey, and chocolate.
