The original evening volcano adventure and still the best! From lava tubes and waterfalls to the current eruption glow and activity this adventure has it all. Start with a drive through quaint Hilo town where you’ll drive along the historic waterfront before turning off the highway and onto the 4 mile Onomea Scenic Route for some of the very best scenery in Hawaii. The drive is punctuated with waterfalls, springs, streams and stunning tropical gardens. The adventure continues at Akaka Falls State Park, the site of the largest easily accessible waterfall on the island. You’ll traverse a paved walking path right through the center of a lush rainforest to Akaka Falls, a stunning 442 foot waterfall that plunges down a sheer cliff and into the water below. Head back down the Hamakua Coast before arriving at Rainbow Falls. This iconic waterfall features an 80 foot tall twin waterfall system. Look for the rainbow effect that gives the waterfall its name!   Explore Kaumana Caves, part of the lava tube system that brought lava 1.5 miles from Hilo-town in 1881. Take a peek inside the dramatic cathedral-like space, and then it’s on to the famous Volcano Winery, the southernmost winery in the United States. You’ll sample up to eight different types of wines, varying from sweet to dry, and all with a unique Hawaiian flare. The Volcano Winery also has estate grown teas to taste and soft drinks and water are also included. After sampling beverages, you’ll enjoy a hearty Hawaiian-style BBQ lunch with a complimentary glass of your choice of Volcano Winery wine or other beverage. Complete the day viewing the glow and activity from the current volcanic eruption if it’s available from a safe distance before returning.
