Upon arrival at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, enjoy a leisurely stroll with your small group and your experienced guide.

Embrace this natural wonder named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.
Then get ready to visit Hawaii Island's only winery, Volcano Winery. Nestled on the slopes of Kilauea volcano, you will have the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive wine event that provides a glass of Volcano Winery's signature wines.No gourmet adventure would be complete without a stop at Big Island Candies, known for their handmade macadamia nut shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate.
