Volcano Express (Waikoloa Departure)


Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the crown jewel of the Big Island. If your goal is primarily to experience it while on the island, try our Volcano Express Tour. Leaving from two central pickup points, one in Kona and one in Waikoloa, this tour takes you straight to the volcano with minimal stops along the way, and maximizes your time in the park while minimizing time on the road. If Kilauea is erupting, the nighttime tour will include time to view the lava lake glow at night.

Tour Details

NORTH ROUTE – Day & Night

• Pick up in Waikoloa
• Rainbow Falls
• Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
• Big Island Candies

The day time tour of the north route is from 8am-4pm with lunch included. Our first stop is Rainbow Falls—an 80-foot falls that cascades over a natural lava cave into the Wailuku river below. Next, we’ll spend most of our time in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park exploring active steam vents, taking a stroll through Thurston Lava Tube and experiencing the awe of Kilauea caldera, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Lastly, we visit Big Island Candies, a Hilo fixture since 1977, and a must-stop for sweet treats.

Our night time tour of the north route is from 3pm-11pm with dinner included. All the stops are the same as our day time tour, but in a different order. We visit Rainbow Falls, then Big Island Candies, and save the highlight of the park for last. If Kilauea is erupting, we’ll include ample viewing time of the awe-inspiring lava lake glow.
