Awaken your senses with the best culinary treats the Big Island has to offer and explore Kilauea Volcano in a unique way, taking the road-less-traveled in a small group of no more than 12 travelers. Kick-start your taste buds with 100% Hawaii-grown coffee, wine and handmade chocolates made exclusively on this island.

Start your morning right with locally grown and freshly roasted Hawaiian coffee at the famous Hilo Coffee Mill.

Upon arrival at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, enjoy a leisurely stroll with your small group and your experienced guide showcasing the incredible changes the landscape has undergone since the May 2018 eruption. The Kilauea Volcano has been extremely active and has changed the island in extraordinary ways.

Witness how its explosive power has expanded the Halema'uma'u Crater to an unparalleled size. Walk across new lava formations and see the regeneration of the native Hawaiian rain forest in its first stages of life. Embrace this natural wonder that was named an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.

A picnic-style specialty lunch and glass of wine will be served on the lush grounds of Volcano Garden Arts--a fine gallery showcasing the work of Hawaiian artists.

No gourmet adventure would be complete without a stop at Big Island Candies, known for their handmade macadamia nut shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate.
