Begin with complimentary late-morning pickup from your Kona- or Waikoloa-area accommodation for a full-day, guided tour to visit one of the worlds most active volcanoes.

Enjoy an afternoon and evening of volcano exploration from the comfort of an air-conditioned SUV.

Tour departures vary with the seasons, however typical Grand Volcano Adventure tours begin late morning from Kona and Waikoloa Hotel areas. We then make our way along the south coast of the island, stopping to visit multiple historic sites along the way and enjoy a picnic lunch. We then make our way up the slopes of Kilauea Volcano, the worlds most active, to see first hand the how a volcano can change the landscape. Here we see the results of explosive volcanic events.

From the summit, we begin searching for the best views of the eruption from multiple locations getting you closer than anyone else can.

Following an afternoon of exploring, it’s time to sit down and enjoy a comfortable dining experience just a few miles from the active vents. Meals are included in the price of the tour and once dinner is complete, we go back to see the fiery glow and marvel at the beauty and power of Kilauea Volcano.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
