Nature Beach Ground Hike
Upon your landing in Hilo you will be met by one of Hawaii Forest and Trail interpretive guides. Guests will experience a guided hike through the remote and rugged landscape of Ka'u's historic farming plantations and the famous crystal-fine black sand beach of Punalu'u. Guests discover just how powerful these forces are that are reshaping the landscape and displacing some of Big Islands residents.

The Volcano Art Center boasts local art and providing up to date eruption information as the 2018 flow breaks records for it's active duration. During the adventure guests are served a picnic lunch before returning to the airport. A possible peak from the air at Pele's fury, a walk in a native Hawaiian Rain-forest a 165 year old working ranch a black sand beach makes this a unique tour of the Big Island of Hawaii.

From waterfalls cascading down sheer valley cliffs to unreachable beaches that never get touched this leisurely flight exposes a hidden side. Landscape changes drastically throughout this island and from the days adventure this tour showcases a sense of it all.
