Hawaiian lore claims that the Big Island was shaped by Pele -- the legendary goddess of fire. Today you will head to Pele's home -- Hawaii Volcanoes National Park -- at 4,300 feet above sea level. The ever-changing landscape around you includes the impressive, headline-grabbing Kilauea Volcano. You will see the results of Hawaii's newest eruptions from Kilauea Iki and step inside the Visitor Center to learn about the forces at work here. Walk along the volcanic ridge and explore the natural steam vents that are a tangible and fascinating reminder of the forces at work beneath you.
Sit back and enjoy a drive through macadamia nut orchards as you approach the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory. While at the Visitor Center, enjoy free time to shop for an array of island treats and gifts, including the exclusive selection of Mauna Loa products found nowhere else.
You will not see molten lava on this tour. Wear closed-toe shoes; bring a sweater or jacket.
