Volcano All Day - Gecko Big Island Tours
This all day tour will take you from the spectacular Nanawale rain forest to the famous Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and will include a no host dinner stop at Halemaumau Crater after sunset with the glowing volcano as your back drop. This is a driving tour that begins by exploring the back roads of Puna, the eastern corner of the Big Island and home to lava trees, hot volcanic ponds, old lava tubes and other hidden treasures of the rain forest. Frequent stops are made for photo taking and exploring. You'll continue on to Volcanoes National Park, where your tour guide will show you the visitors center, Jagger Museum, the Thurston Lava Tube (which includes a 10 minute easy hike through the lava tube), active steam vents, sulfur banks and scenic lookouts. Finally, your tour vehicle will stop at the Halemaumau Crater lookout, where you will enjoy an amazing view inside the crater after sunset. The molten lava just below the crater's surface creates a dramatic glow and a unique ambiance, a perfect setting as you enjoy your dinner. This tour also includes a stop at Rainbow Falls in Hilo, a drive through the Mauna Loa macadamia orchard, the visitors center and factory.
