The Big Island is without a doubt the best island in Hawai`i for adventure tours. When on island, guests can explore the Big Island’s best adventure tours both on the Kona and Hilo sides of the island. Here, you can explore the best of both worlds with vibrant green valleys and rainforests, amazing coal-black lava formations, gorgeous waterfalls, dramatic coastlines, and a host of Hawai`i’s innate beauty.

Some of the most popular adventure tours on the Big Island revolve around exploring Hawai`i’s volcanoes. A lava expedition is a great choice for hikers that want to learn more about Hawai`i’s two largest volcanoes: Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Evening volcano tours are also a super cool choice where guests can enjoy a picnic lunch at a Kona coffee farm, visit the Hawaiian green sea turtles from Punalu’u’s black sand beach, watch the dramatic Kilauea Volcano during sunset, and enjoy dinner from the historic Volcano House restaurant. On this tour, guests can dine with firey views of Mount Kilauea. A guided Hawaii Volcanoes National Park tour is definitely a Big Island adventure that all guests should experience at least once in their lifetime! On this full 10 hour tour, guests have an opportunity to visit Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, the Pu’ u Pua’i Overlook, Steam Buffs, Rainbow Falls, the historic Hilo Town, the Thurston Lava Tube, Punalu’u black sand beach, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Observatory, the Jaggar Museum, and more.

Big Island Zipline Tours are increasingly becoming one of the most popular activities to do in Hawai`i, and are a great way to test your strengths! Zipline tours happen rain or shine, so guests should definitely dress comfortably with a light rain jacket, closed-toe shoes, a hat and sunscreen. After a zipline safety and information training class, guests will travel to the zipline site on an exciting narrated off-road adventure. Zipline courses include dual track courses, a total of a 1,000 foot elevation drop throughout the course, elevated platforms, suspension bridges and suspended staircases.
