Food

On this tour most meals will be eaten in local restaurants. Hawaii is more expensive than the mainland so it is worth having extra currency with you. To help you budget for your meals on average hotel breakfasts cost from US$18, lunches from US$20 and dinners from US$50; this does not include alcoholic beverages. Please also be aware that a tip of approximately 15%-20% is added to group meals in North American restaurants. Applicable taxes will also be added to all listed menu prices. Please make sure we are aware of any special meal requirements before travelling. We will do all we can to accommodate for various dietary requirements but in certain parts of Hawaii some food types can be limited.

Itinerary

Location: O‘ahu

Welcome to the Hawaiian Island of Oahu and the 50th American State. You will have a welcome meeting in the hotel lobby at 18:00 this evening to meet your tour leader and fellow travelling companions. Please look for a notice in the hotel lobby where it will take place. There is a lot to do in Honolulu and it is highly recommended to book a few extra days to make the most of your time here. If you do arrive early, why not go snorkelling at Hanauma Bay or visit the Dole Plantation or Polynesian Cultural Centre? The Waikiki area is also ideal for soaking up the sun’s rays, which are almost as famous as the beach itself.

The infamous incident at Pearl Harbor was a surprise military attack by the Japanese against the United States naval base, on the morning of December 7, 1941. It has since become known as the Battle of Pearl Harbor and sparked off the United States’ participation in World War II. Today is a sobering visit to this historic site with an audio guide provided. Included is admission to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona to learn about this infamous side of American history. Take an afternoon drive to visit the world-famous beaches and surf breaks of the North Shore before continuing down Oahu’s windward coast with all its breathtaking views. In the evening return to Waikiki for cocktails and sunset where you may even be lucky enough to view the rare “Green Flash” as the sun descends below the horizon.

Location: Pu'uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historical Park

With Oahu in the background, we fly to Big Island where we spend the next four nights. You’ll notice the landscape and flora changing between islands and today is no different. First up is a visit to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, which brings Hawaiian culture to life. It was in this sacred place that people who had committed crimes or broken the laws of the people, ended up seeking refuge from the death penalty. Upon arrival, you’ll notice the great wall marking borders between the royal grounds and the sanctuary. Many ki'i (carved wooden images) surround the Hale o Keawe temple, housing the bones of the chiefs. Surrounded by palm-lined beaches, wooden carvings, a massive lava rock wall and reconstructed villages, the location is simply idyllic. From here we head to Volcanoes National Park for the next two nights, taking in Kilauea's spectacular variety of incredible volcanic features and ecosystems. The scenery and landscape changes significantly from shady forests with birds singing to steaming vents, desert-like-terrain and vast craters. Keep an eye out for Hawaii's state bird, the highly engendered Nene Goose. Enjoy a scenic drive on the Chain of Craters road. Travel through dense rain forest into desolate black lava fields, discover ancient petroglyphs and end by the ocean with views of the Holei Sea Arch. We will be joined by a specialist guide who will take us on a four-mile roundtrip hike to the bottom of Halema’uma’u Crater. The crater previously had a lava lake inside which erupted last summer, which makes this an interesting time to learn about the recent activity. See lava trees and enjoy nature and bird watching. When returning to the hotel enjoy a stop at Volcano Winery, where you can opt for a unique wine tasting experience. *Accommodation:* Volcano Inn (or similar)
