After picking you up in Kona or Waikoloa, you will start the day with a joint breakfast where you will taste fresh Kona coffee.

A world of Hawaiian myths and legends - the historic Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Park can hardly be put into words. Walking along the paths in the park seems like a journey back in time, as the former royal court is still adorned with wooden statues of gods, old canoes, and restored wooden buildings. You can find out the history behind the high god portraits from a former chief of the island. The mythical stories are still alive in the society today.

The next stop of this tour is the Punalu'u Beach Park. Its smaller size seems to do nothing but enhance its unique splendor. Once you have walked through the dense green, you will see the black sand formed by the volcanic activity on the island. Sea turtles that come here to rest.

During the hikes, you will take short breaks to enjoy the view.

The next attraction is a visit to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The Kilauea is the most active volcano in the world. The rainforest environment is dotted with underground and hidden lava tunnels, as well as impressive volcanic formations.

In Hilo, you will make a stop at a tropical fruit plantation and visit the Waianuenue Rainbow Falls. The waterfalls impress with their permanent rainbows, which are especially visible in the early morning hours.
