Explore the beautiful sights of the Big Island as an expert tour guide shows you to the must-see locales hidden away in the Hawaiian wilderness. See the sacrificial temple assembled to gain favor of the war god Ku, look out over the Waipio Valley, and admire the waterfalls near the Hilo coast.

With a customizable itinerary and a knowledgeable guide, you have the freedom to find just the sights you're looking for. In Kapaau, you can view a statue of King Kamehameha I, famously recovered after being lost at sea, and then venture up to the Polulu Lookout for some spectacular scenery in the cool ocean breeze. Along the Kohala Mountain Road, the view stretches all the way to 3 of the island's tallest mountain peaks on a clear day, or across the water to Maui.

Make your way through Parker Ranch, once the largest privately owned ranch in the United States, on your way through Waimea to the Waipio Valley Lookout. You can visit Tex Bakery, home of the world-famous malasadas, before you venture inland to view the 442-foot (134-m) Akaka Falls and Rainbow Falls just outside the town of Hilo.

The last leg of your journey takes you back to North Kona, Kohala, or Hilo by way of Saddle Road, nestled between the immense volcanoes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, so tall that snow can gather on their peaks during the cooler months of the rainy season.
