Experience the different districts and microclimates of Hawaii Island in one day. This tour showcases the best of the island, with views of Kona, Ka’u and Hamakua coastlines, complete with our favorite stops in between. Begin by sampling the island’s finest coffees and sweet treats before heading to a black sand beach and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Then, we end our tour at the scenic Rainbow Falls in Hilo before cruising back along the beautiful, lush Hamakua coast.
Premium Kona Coffee Farm
Cruise through the historic Kona district into the heart of coffee country. Breathe in the mountain air at one of our favorite coffee roasters while sampling a wide selection of Kona coffees. Enjoy a fresh island-style continental breakfast overlooking the expansive Kona coastline.
Punalu’u Bake Shop
Delight in fresh Hawaiian sweetbreads and malasadas from the southernmost bakery in the U.S., and grab extra for our next visit to Punalu’u black sand beach.
Punalu’u Black Sand Beach
This stunning beach is home to many nesting Hawaiian sea turtles. It is also a place where many Polynesian explorers first came ashore on the island.
Volcano Winery & Tea Farm
Enjoy a private farm and tasting tour exclusive to Kailani Tours’ guests. Sample unique wines grown at 4,000 feet elevation on the slopes of a volcano.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
The crown jewel of the Big Island, this park contains two of the world’s most active volcanoes—Kilauea and Mauna Loa, as well as many important historical and cultural sites. From sea level to Mauna Loa’s peak at 13,667 feet, this park is a designated International Biosphere Reserve, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the Visitor’s Center, see and feel the heat of steam vents and view Kilauea and Kilauea Iki craters before taking a short hike through Thurston Lava Tube.
This 80-foot falls plunges over a natural lava cave and into the Wailuku River below. It is said that the Hawaiian goddess Hina, mother of the storied demigod Maui, dwells in the lava cave behind Rainbow Falls. On a sunny day, rainbows appear in the mist of the falls, making for a magical view.
