Hawaii’s Big Island is aptly named, so if you’re intending sightseeing Big Island, then Grand Circle Island is not to be missed!
The 260-mile Grand Circle Island tour makes experiencing all that Big Island has to offer comfortable and convenient. You’ll be able to kick back and relax in an air-conditioned, deluxe coach while someone else does the driving, in the care of a knowledgeable tour guide who’ll make sure you don’t miss a thing!
And there certainly is plenty to see: Kailua Town, coffee plantations, Black Sand Beach, and more! The steam bluffs and crater drive are among the highlights of the tour – imagine getting up close to Hawaiian volcano Kilauea! The majesty of nature is never more forcefully apparent than when we witness the clash of two of the world’s most powerful forces!
Can you picture watching molten lava flows entering the ocean at sunset? The hiss of steam, the boom of the waves, and the angry red of the superheated rock against a darkening sky – simply unforgettable! Hawaii volcano tour ‘Twilight Discovery’ gives you the opportunity to do just that.
Winding through Kilauea National Park and culminating at Kalapana at sunset, the Twilight Discovery tour showcases some of the world’s rarest plants and animal life, and is simply a must for anyone traveling on Big Island.
If you enjoyed the trip through the park, why not head to Hilo car rental during your stay and take a more leisurely look at the Hamakua Heritage Corridor?
Or you could try a Mauna Kea summit tour with star gazing. You’ll sit atop the summit of Mauna Kea (the world’s tallest mountain at 31,000 feet from the ocean floor) and watch the sun set over the pacific. Enjoy the view of Haleakala on Maui, and then at 9,000-foot elevation, break out the telescopes. Rug up and enjoy the hot drinks and cookies as you gaze at the night sky.
Maybe all of these options are too laid back for your tastes? Then you’ll love downhill mountain biking on a guided bicycle tour of Kilauea National Park. Winding through microclimates, passing huge craters and steam vents you’ll be right in the thick of Big Island’s natural beauty. And don’t worry – you don’t have to bike all the way! The support bus, loaded with drinks and lunch, will be with you for the entire four to five hour trip.
Once you’re done with your day of cycling and back at your accommodation, a simple solution like a Big Island car rental might be the perfect way to do the rest of your sightseeing. Big Island has plenty offer and you won’t want to miss any of it!
