The Lava & Rainforests excursion showcases Hawai‘i’s story and its inextricable link to the elements. You will fly over Kīlauea, one of the most active volcanoes on earth, and search out any activity at Halema’uma’u crater, Ahuʻailāʻau, or Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō vent. The windward side catches enough rain to make Hilo the wettest city in the United States.

All this water fills tunnels that once flowed with lava, creating incredible rivers, pools, and waterfalls all over east Hawai’i. View Hilo’s lush rainforests, Mauna Loa’s vistas, and the plunging Wai‘ānuenue (Rainbow Falls), so named for the rainbows you can see in the mist when the early morning sunshine hits the water.
