This tour is unlike any other! We will spend the day exploring the unique geology of Hawaii's Big Island by visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where we will learn about the seismic activity that has been a constant element on the island.

Afterwards, we will make stops at Richardson's Black Sand Beach, Rainbow Falls State Park, Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory, the Jaggar Museum and Hawaii Volcano Observatory. We will also get the chance to walk through the Thurston Lava Tube, drive along a volcanic crater and take in the beauty of the Fern Tree Jungle.
