Full Day Tour on the East Side (Wild Orchid): 12 hours


FROM THE SEA

TO THE MOUNTAINS

TO THE FOREST

TO THE VOLCANO

TO THE NIGHT MAGMA VIEWING


We learn to observe the world. We learn the names of trees and plants and their habitat: the plan and atmosphere of the parks, the gardens, deserts and seascapes, high peaks and lowlands. Each of these pathways has an inner reality, which we learn to recognize when the vision of our tour begins to manifest. Handcrafted tours: A unique ‘walk-about’-drive-by, ‘hands-on’ tour provided by an experienced tour guide.


This excursion is a combination of Hilo Tour, Tropical Puna Tour, Hamakua Coast Tour and Volcanoes National Park After Dark Tour’s highlights.
