Select a date to start reservation!
Spend your day traveling to Kilauea Volcano from Maui, and visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You will learn about the seismic activity and culture built around it. This adventure includes the world’s largest volcano, Mauna Loa, and the world’s most active volcano, Kilauea. The marvels of the volcanoes, lava beds, and steam vents are closely weaved into the Big Islands culture and legends. Witness a smoldering crater or a steam vent, but it is not guaranteed to see red-hot lava flow. In addition to the powerful volcano, you will experience the breathtaking and exceptional scenery around you.
You will visit Rainbow Falls, the town of Hilo, and Queen Lydia Liliuokalani Gardens. Also on this tour, you will see see amazing natural formations, including the Thurston Lava Tube and the Kilauea Iki Steam Vents.
