Tour description provided by Viator

Take a Big Island volcano tour from Oahu on a day trip to Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park. The recent eruptions of Kilauea Volcano have captured the world's imagination, so see the extraordinary landscape for yourself on this Oahu volcano tour.

This fully narrated volcano adventure is a great way to explore and learn about the Big Island's volatile geology first-hand. The Oahu volcano tour features a hike over the lava flow that covered the village of Kalapana and Kaimu Black Sand Beach in the 1980s. A short walk out to the newest accessible black sand beach takes you over an area that was once the ocean! Look to the east and see the slopes of Volcanoes National Park. If there is any surface lava flow, you may see steam or lava flowing downstream towards the sea.

This trip takes you exploring in Volcanoes National Park, to the Jaggar Museum and Volcano House, Thurston Lava Tube, Kilauea Iki Crater and a visit to a colorful anthurium and orchid nursery to see these exotic blooms. You'll also drive through the town of Hilo along Banyan Drive.

Visits along the way include the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory and a Kona Coffee shop.

Another highlight of this Big Island volcano tour is your visit to the legendary Rainbow Falls, where you might be lucky enough to see the rushing water mix with sunlight to form beautiful rainbows.
