Take a relaxing, scenic excursion around the Big Island of Hawaii where you’ll experience the most historic, scenic and cultural highlights of Hawaii’s youngest island. Round-trip transportation from your Kona hotel is included.
Recent and record-breaking volcanic eruptions have made international headlines. The pause in early August 2018 in earthquakes and collapse-explosion events at the summit of Kīlauea brings new hope that the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park will be reopened soon and we will once again be able to bring guests into the Park.
The latest itinerary for this tour includes a visit to Royal Kona Coffee’s headquarters, Punalu‘u black sand beach and lunch at the newly renovated Queen’s Court Restaurant in the historic Hilo Hawaiian Hotel with views of Hilo Bay and Mauna Kea. After lunch it’s onto Big Island Candy Company, the home for exquisite chocolate and mac nut treats and then a stop at not one, but two waterfalls – Rainbow and Akaka Falls! On the way back to Kona, stop at Hamakua Macadamia Nut to see macadamia nuts roasted to perfection.
