Small Group Tour: Deluxe Volcano Experience with Restaurant Dinner
From US$238.54
Overview
Dine with views of Kilauea’s glowing magma on a small-group volcano tour of Mauna Kea State Park and Kilauea, part of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. After viewing the volcanoes in full daylight, watch them light up after dark for the full Hawaii volcano experience. The day includes a picnic lunch by Mauna Kea, plenty of sightseeing stops, and a multi-course dinner at historic Kilauea Lodge.
What to Expect

Meet a driver at your hotel (selected areas only) for the scenic trip to Mauna Kea State Park, passing between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes. The first stop of the day is a catered picnic lunch at Mauna Kea State Park before heading to Rainbow Falls, King Kamehameha Statue, and Kilauea, Hawaii’s most active volcano.

At Kilauea National Park, tour the fascinating volcanic landscape, including steam vents, the smoke plume from Halemaumau Crater, and Thurston Lava Tube, stopping at Jaggar Museum to see the caldera. When the sun begins to set, sit down to a dinner at Kilauea Lodge, dining on your choice of entree and drink with soup, salad, and bread served alongside.

After dinner, head to the Jaggar Museum again to watch the nighttime glow, then relax on the way back to your hotel, making a short stargazing stop if weather permits.

The Grant and Robin experience

We signed up for the Deluxe volcano and dinner tour 6 months or so ago. Just our luck that Pele decided to rearrange the furniture, but we kept the tour and it was great. Jim worked hard to show us a lot of other things...More

Disgruntled John

In a previous review a seriously uninformed traveler groused about not entering the park. John, I can only give you a great big “duh” for being the one person on earth who doesn’t know about the park being closed. I recently did the Circle Tour...More
