    See the island’s most spectacular natural wonders, starting with a hike to Kilauea Crater in Volcanoes National Park.


    The setting is so extraordinary that UNESCO deemed the park a World Biosphere site and a World Heritage site. To reach the crater, you will hike three miles roundtrip. The sights along the way will make it well worth the effort, as the volcano has been steadily erupting since 1983 and the surrounding countryside is dramatic. Afterward, you will pause for photos at magnificent Rainbow Falls, which is named for the rainbows that often form in the surrounding mist. Another photo opportunity awaits you at Liliuokalani Gardens, which pays tribute to the Japanese immigrants that worked in the sugarcane fields more than a century ago. Enjoy a local shopping stop where you can sample Hawaiian macadamia nuts before returning to the ship.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Hike through the dramatic countryside to a volcanic crater that continues to erupt.
    • Enjoy photo opportunities at Rainbow Falls and Liliuokalani Gardens.
    • Enjoy a local shopping stop and sample Hawaii macadamia nuts.

    Spectacular volcanoes, craters and steam vents are waiting to be explored at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park that has recently reopened after a period of tumultuous volcanic activity. The landscape of Volcanoes Park has dramatically changed as the floor of the Kilauea crater sunk over 1,500 feet and the overall caldera quadrupled in size and widened by over a square mile.


    Today, the explosive eruptions, earthquakes and ash clouds have been replaced by remarkable changes in the summit area that your guests will observe on their Volcanoes and Blossoms Tour experience.


    The highlights of this exciting tour include approximately half hour visits at each of the following destinations in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park while riding to each stop in comfort on mini-coach vehicles. They’ll walk through the Kilauea Visitors Center to receive information on the Park’s current conditions, view educational exhibits and interact with park rangers. Then they’ll be engulfed in rising steam as ground water seeps down to the hot volcanic rocks at the Steam Vents. The area between the edge of Kilauea’s caldera and the outer cliffs are treeless because the extreme heat destroys their roots; only shallow-rooted grasses and other hearty plants survive here. Unforgettable views for miles are offered from Kilauea Iki Overlook. Kilauea’s massive size and scale is realized from this vantage point and Halemau’uma’u Crater and Mauna Loa are seen in the distance.Guests visit the famous Akatsuka Orchid Gardens established in Volcano, Hawaii in 1974. Akatsuka is known world-wide for their impressive collection of Cattleya orchids and cultivation of Anthuriums, Bromeliads and more. Guests browse the 13,000 square foot tropical plants.Between May and August a $20,000 award-winning, one-of-a-kind orchid is on display that blooms just once a year.


    The Volcanoes National Park Tour is not to be missed and includes round-trip transportation from the pier on full-size mini buses.
