Big Island Adventures – An Amazing Volcano Adventure!

Hawaiʻi is a magnificent place, probably most famous for its volcanoes. When setting out on Big Island Adventures, you have to make sure to add a volcano tour to your list of things to do. Before we tell you a bit more about two of the volcanoes that we visit on our Deluxe Volcano Tour, let’s take a moment to talk about the tour self.

On our tour, we travel in a luxurious Mercedes Benz Sprinter Mini-Coach over the Saddle Road past Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on our way to the most active volcano in Hawaiʻi – Kilauea. We include a gourmet breakfast and lunch on our tour. Our tour guide is English speaking, and we make sure to stick to the COVID-19 regulations. You can contact us if you want any more information about this tour.

With all the basic tour information behind us, let’s start talking volcanoes!

Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park


If you want to talk some serious volcano talk, then we have to include the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park in your Big Island Adventures. It is in the name! A park that protects unique geological, biological, and cultural landscapes. A park that is full of volcanoes.

The park encompasses two of the summits of the most active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Here you can learn about the history and culture of the park. You can get the latest updates on what is going on with the volcanoes, and you can be a witness to our beautiful nature.

In this park of wonders, we will take a special look at two special stops for us at Kailani Tours – Chain of Craters Road and Halema’umau.

Chain Of Craters Road

The Chain of Craters Road is a 19-mile paved road that runs through the East Rift and coastal area of the Hawaiʻi National Volcanoes Park. The road was build in 1928. Parts of the road are covered in lave due to eruptions of Kilauea.

What an amazing adventure to drive on the road with parts covered in lava? It seems as if it is something out of a fairy tale.


On your Big Island adventures, you need to take the time to stop at Halema’umau. Halema’umau is a pit crater located within the larger Kilauea Caldera in the Hawaiʻi National Volcanoes Park. In 2018 the crater collapsed, roughly doubling the size of the crater.

In the summer of 2019, a water pond was recorded for the first time in history in Halema’umau. Scientists believe that the crater’s collapse in 2018 caused the floor level of the crater to drop below the water level.


The road to visit these legendary volcanoes and the history behind the volcanoes can keep us busy for days. There is so much to learn and so much to share with you on your Big Island Adventures.

Join us for an experience that you will not forget! We at Kailani Tours Hawaiʻi have a passion for our beautiful island and want to share it with you.
