Akaka Falls State Park
Hawaii Volcano Tours
adventure starts with an early morning pick-up from your Hilo-area hotel, cruise ship or airport. After a short drive up the scenic Hamakua Coast, we hike through a beautiful Hawaiian rainforest. Tropical flowers and plants grow in abundance – see flowering ginger, orchids, huge stands of bamboo, wild banana, impatiens and our special ti plant. Finally … magnificent waterfalls that you though only existed in movies - spectacular Kahuna and towering Akaka Falls.
“Spectacular” … “unbelievable” … “nature at work”… words fail to describe the magnificence of Kilauea. The only active volcano in the United States, Kilauea has been in a constant state of eruption since 1983. Watch the molten lava flow and cascade into the ocean, steaming, churning, and forming new land right before your very eyes. Be a witness to creation.
As we ascend Volcano Highway notice the abundance of yellow and white kahalii (wild ginger), guava, ohia trees and lehua blossoms along the route. After entering Hawaii Volcanoes National Park we tour the Kilauea Caldera, Halema’uma’u Crater, Jaggar Observatory and National Park Visitor’s Center. But wait – your adventure is just beginning as we descend Chain of Craters Road to the current lava flow ! Finally, a short hike through a rain forest brings us through Thurston lava tube. Don’t forget your camera because you will certainly want to record your once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Wear light-weight long pants and sturdy walking shoes. (Sandals and open shoes are not recommended.) Sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat are advisable.
