Journey through Hawaii Island’s incredible range of ecosystems and climate zones before experiencing first-hand the phenomena that makes it all possible – an erupting volcano. This in-depth experience with a National Park certified interpretive guide will reveal the mysteries surrounding many of the park’s most impressive sites. This small-group tour is limited to 14 people to provide a more personalized experience.

Begin your 12-hour, small-group tour with a visit to see two of the world's largest volcanoes, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. The region is locally known as the Saddle, and it's also home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the world. After a brief stop for lunch at Mauna State Park, continue east towards Hilo to explore a lava tube. Here you'll turn on your provided flashlight and look around these spellbinding passages that once carried molten rock from Mauna Loa's upper rift zones to the ocean.

From there, head into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park via the Crater Rim Drive. The park, which is both a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Preserve, is filled with must-see spots such as the active Kilauea. Throughout the afternoon, your guide leads your group on moderate 1.5-mile (2 km) hikes, with breaks in between, along mostly flat trails; if need be, you can use provided walking sticks in areas with uneven or muddy terrain. Since Pele (the fire goddess said to live here) is unpredictable, it’s not guaranteed that you get to see lava flowing firsthand on this hike, but your guide will do their best to take you to prime viewing spots if the conditions are safe.

When Kilauea isn't erupting, you actually get to walk the summit caldera, peer down steam vents, and marvel at the cinder fields. Such dramatic displays aren't the only natural wonders of the park. You'll also explore trails carved into a native rain forest before you head to a spot where you'll get to see active lava glowing at twilight.

Your Big Island volcano tour includes a delicious picnic style dinner.

Experience the Hawaiian beauty of the Kohala Waterfalls on this small group Kohala Waterfalls adventure tour. Drive along the Kona coastline and explore the areas where lava flows from Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and the Kohala Mountain. You'll also learn about Hawaii's countryside - a place of old sugar plantations, ancient legends and extraordinary natural beauty. Easy walks, gorgeous countryside views and a chance to cool off in a mountain stream make the Kohala Waterfalls Adventure the ideal family adventure in Hawaii!

As you drive along the Kona coastline, you can often see splashing spinner dolphins or in the winter months and breaching humpback whales. Pass through the quaint plantation towns of Hawi and Kapaau, site of the life-size statue of King Kamehameha I.

At the end of the road, a brief rest stop at the historic Kohala Mule Station offers one of Hawaii's most spectacular coastal views. Then the real fun begins with a bumpy but short off-road drive in the 6x6 Pinzgauer. Ramble through a landscape of rushing streams, towering ocean cliffs and cascading waterfalls!

Once out of the Pinzgauer, you'll step back into the early 1900s when plantation owners began construction of the Kohala Ditch Trail. Along the 1.5 mile (2.4km) loop trail, you'll see tunnels blasted and carved from solid rock, walk over an aqueduct and learn the story of the tremendous effort it took to build the 22 mile (35km) irrigation system. The hike is considered easy to moderate with several short, steep climbs. The total walking distance is up to 2 miles (3.2km).

Seven beautiful waterfalls grace the trail and you can take a refreshing dip in the last pool visited and play under a refreshing cascade. With stunning mountain panoramas, green valleys and the abundant water, the Kohala Waterfalls Adventure is a fascinating way for young and old to experience Kohala's "story of water."

Get your binoculars ready for a small group adventure tour to Mauna Kea Forest Preserve for fantastic bird-watching opportunities. Visit both rainforest and dry forest habitats for a great introduction to Hawaii's wide variety of bird species, with guidance from an expert local guide and bird enthusiast.

Puu Oo Trail is a historic cattle drive route located at the 6,000 foot (1800 meters) level of Saddle Road on Mauna Loa's northeastern flank. This is the windward side of the island and is often cloaked in misty clouds. It is enchanting to be serenaded by the forest birds as you cross three to four miles (5-6 km) of lava trail. At the Humuula hunter check-in station just off Saddle Road, you'll go into the Kaohe Game Management Area and four-wheel up to nearly 7,000 feet (2,100 meters) on the western side of Mauna Kea.

Some of the avifauna you may spot along the way are iiwi, apapane, amakihi, omao, elepaio, and the elusive akiapolaau, with its unique multipurpose beak. In the dryforest, the track leads to a locked gate that is the entrance to the Mauna Kea Forest Preserve. Here, you'll have the opportunity to disembark from the van and take in the spectacular views. Then get down to some serious bird watching on foot in the mamane-naio forest.

You'll particularly focus on sighting the critically threatened palila, which feeds almost entirely on the green pods of the mamane tree. There are two other endemics of note to be found here: the Hawaii amakihi, and the local species of the Hawaii elepaio (noted for the white feathering on its head).
