We then drive to Volcanoes National Park. The views are the most spectacular at night when we visit Halema'uma'u (lava lake) where Pele lives . Camping inside of Volcanoes national park under a blanket of stars will finish this perfect day.
Day two: After breakfast we learn about Hawaiian culture and connection to the new land and lava. Get out the flashlight for Thurston Lava Tube to see how lava creates a cave. In Hilo we will see the stone that changed the history of these islands and the destiny of one of the greatest Hawaiian kings. A hike to Rainbow falls look outs and then on to boiling pots before hiking in the rain forest on the wet side of the island. Back on the dry side of the island we will be swimming in the ocean at a white sand beach.
