Welcome to HAWAI’I

Travel through the southernmost, largest, and youngest of the Hawai’i islands – known as “the Big Island” – and you’ll be travelling through all but two of the world’s 13 climate zones.

Experience the tropical wet climate of Waipio Valley, the hot desert climate of Kaunaoa Beach, and the periglacial climate of the Maunakea Summit.

Hawai’i island is perhaps most famous for it’s geological wonders, and is home to the tallest sea mountain in the islands, as well as the only active volcanos.

Visitors will fall in love with idyllic cottages in Volcano Village, enjoy farm-to-table meals and locally grown coffee in one of the many mountainside bed and breakfasts, or live luxuriously in one of the many palm-tree-studded beach resorts at Kohala coast.

The Big Island is home to many once-in-a-lifetime activities, including night snorkelling with manta rays, and stargazing at the Mauna Loa Observatory. Travellers looking for unique experiences won’t be disappointed!
