Volcano Unveiled Tour Features
A Day of Adventure
We will pick you up in Kona at Waikoloa and travel to Hawai’i Volcanos National Park for a day of adventure and wonder. This 12-hour in-depth experience includes transportation, a National Park Certified Guide to share a mix of natural and cultural history. Snacks, beverages, deli-style lunch, and dinner too! You will enjoy easy-to-moderate hiking around the park’s dynamic terrain and even visit a lava tube!
See the Lava after Dark
After dark, we gather near the edge of Halemaumau crater to see Madame Pele’s handiwork in the lava glow and – if we’re lucky – perhaps a small eruption in the caldera! You will learn how the Hawaiian Island chain was formed and is still growing.
Lunch, dinner, and snacks are included, and we will provide walking sticks and rain ponchos for your comfort.
Pause at Some Breathtaking Spots
Just north of Hilo, you will have the chance to see the famous Rainbow Falls. You’ve heard of our Black Sand Beaches? You will have a chance to walk along the unusual sands of this beach formed by broken down lava rock.

We’ll visit a large private lava tube known for its bright yellow and gold microbial mats living on the cave walls.
We will stay after dark to see the eruption deep inside Halemaumau Crater to catch glimpses of lava and see the night sky light up with Pele’s orange and red glow.
We’ll keep you hydrated and energized with beverages and snacks throughout the day. Lunch will be your choice of delicious sandwiches from Christine’s Deli. You’ll have a filling hot dinner too! Make your choices at checkout - vegan options are available for both meals.
