Ready to take a step beyond the typical relaxing vacation? Well, Hawaii’s here for you. Enjoy the best of the islands without the hectic resort crowds. On Maui, spend time discovering this island paradise before shaking those hips at a luau. The last few days take you to Big Island (also known as Hawai’i) to heat up your vacation (literally!) with a visit to Volcanoes National Park. We never said Hawaii was for the faint of heart.

Travel to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and discover the lava flows and martian-like landscapes during a full-day excursion in the park. Due to recent volcanic activity, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park is currently closed. For departures in 2018, we will instead be taking a day trip to visit other beautiful sites on the island. Start by visiting Akaka Falls – this towering 442ft tall waterfall is accessible after a short hike through the lush rainforest, with the chance to see wild orchids, bamboo groves and draping ferns. After, we’ll continue to Waipio Valley. Known locally as “Valley of the Kings,” this sacred site to the Hawaiian people was once home to as many as 10,000 inhabitants before Captain Cook’s arrival to the island. It is more modernly known for its black sand beaches that stretch the valley shoreline.
