An amazing experience to travel from sea level to almost 14,000 ft. In such comfort. To feel the energy of this sacred site is truly magical. Beauty abounds. We had time to walk around a bit while waiting for the sun to crest the horizon....More

Hawaii Forest and trail is the tour company, you can book direct. They will cater the walks depending on the group on the day. It's about $100 per person including lunch and diner.
I am interested in the epic island tour. Can I get more information about the type of van used for this tour? I get claustrophobic on those smaller vans where you're stuck in the last row without a way to get out - especially on a long 12 hour tour. Any photos and/or info appreciated. The rest of the tour looks great. Thanks!

I'm one of those uptight mainlanders who likes to know the TIMES for these kinds of things. :) There are 3-5 of us who are looking at the last week of June to book a Volcano tour and Mauna Lea visit. We will be staying in Waikoloa. Can you please detail the times for pick up for Maunakea Summit & Stars Adventure, Volcano by Air and Land and any others that you suggest for these two locations? Thank you!
