Learn about Hawaii's fascinating geology and observe the power of volcanic activity first-hand with a private tour of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Explore the local ecology and hear all about the birth of Hawaii's youngest island.

After convenient pickup, begin your tour with an introduction to the charm of the Hilo Bay area, including sights of its distinctive black sand beach. Make your way to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enter the gates of this immense park and marvel at its sprawl of protected forest, breathing in the brisk air that comes with 4,000 feet (1,219 m) of elevation.

The park features 150 miles (241 km) of trails, including a famous road leading to the Kilauea Crater and its dramatic steam vents. Enjoy the opportunity to see the most sought-after site within the park—Madam Pele, at the Halemaumau Crater. Visit the Dr. Jagger Museum and learn about the ever-changing volcanic activity that shapes the island. You can also see the museum's 24/7 Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

See the Kilauea caldera and Kilauea Iki Overlook, where you marvel at views of a deep crater that was once a molten lake of lava after an eruption in 1959. Continue with a hike into a protected rainforest and, eventually, the Nahuku (Thurston) Lava Tube. Your experience ends with a ride back to the Hilo area.
