Adventure North, and experience an older, more traditional Hawaii on the famous Hamakua Coast.  Mauna Kea volcano last erupted some 4,600 years ago.  However, that hasn't changed the fact that the volcano is still impressing visitors and locals alike.  Along highways old and new, we'll head from the highlands of Waimea, to the coastal jungles of Hilo down Hawaii's Hamakua coast.  Our trip along this historic and beautiful part of the island begins with a drive along some of the most scenic backroads on the island.  The backroads of the Hamakua coast wind through lush jungle gulches, crossing rivers, and passing scenic ocean vistas.  It is an afternoon drive through a Hawaiian slice of Heaven.

What To Expect

The Volcano Van Private Tours
This tour begins as we leave the shores of the Kona and Kohala to the lush rain forests on the east side of the island.  We’ll head up through the ranching town Waimea and the pastoral landscape as well with a stop at Waipio Valley.
A stop for a delicious local snack of malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts)  at Tex Drive, then to Laupahoehoe point, where 300 foot sea cliffs surround a peninsula on both sides.  After some amazing photo opportunities, we’ll continue south along the lush jungle roads to Akaka Falls State Park. We will pass through the town of Honomu, where we’ll have a picnic lunch of fresh local sandwiches and fresh fruit. 
After Akaka Falls, we’ll head through the town of Hilo and we'll check out Rainbow Falls.  Next, we will take a glance inside Mauna Loa volcano known as Kaumana Caves. 
The last part of our adventure takes us up Saddle Road back to the island’s west side. To top it all off we’ll be afforded stunning views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes at sunset.
