Lava Forest and Falls - Gecko Big Island Tours
Explore the Nanawale rain forest and the surrounding lush, tropical setting located on the east rift zone of the most active volcano on earth, Kilauea. This is a driving tour through the back roads of Puna, the eastern corner of the Big Island and home to lava trees, volcanic hot ponds, old lava tubes and other hidden treasures of the rain forest. Frequent stops are made through the entire tour for photo taking and exploring. This tour also includes a drive through the Mauna Loa macadamia nut orchard and a stop at the visitors center to sample a variety of macadamia nut treats, a guided walk through the Nanawale rain forest to view the lava trees and fissures hidden in the jungle, a scenic drive along the famous coastal Red Road of Kalapana and a windy country road drive through a large mango grove. Stop at the ocean sea cliffs of McKenzie Park, dip your toes in a hot pond heated by the volcano and enjoy an easy hike over an old lava flow from 1984 to a small black sand beach.
