Escape the stress of holiday preparation and cooking, and head to the quiet side of Hawai‘i island for the “Thanksgiving Volcano Tour” special package. Spend the day exploring the dramatic changes to the landscape from the recent Kīlauea volcano activity, and appreciating the wonder of nature’s beauty and strength.
Recently reopened, KapohoKine Adventures offers visitors a chance to get back inside Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park with the “Thanksgiving Volcano Tour” package. Guests will hike throughout the Park including to the new cracks in the paved road out to Keanakāko‘i Crater, Kīlauea Visitor Center, Steaming Bluff, Volcano House and more. Expect to see a dramatically different Kīlauea Caldera that now showcases a new, massive 1,000+ foot deep crater that just recently held a lava lake.
Thanksgiving dinner will be unlike any other with the special location of Volcano Winery. Typically only open for tastings, guests will receive a vineyard tour to learn about the shallow volcanic topsoil that provides a unique terrain and nutrient rich soil for the vineyard. After a wine tasting, a traditional dinner is served with turkey and ham, stuffing, roasted sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, cranberry sauce, tossed salad and pumpkin pie. A glass of wine is also included, as well as coffee and tea.
