This self-drive in-app audio tour is perfect for independent travelers who want to explore the paradise island on their own in no rush, without a group and schedule. With a detailed full-day route, you will spot the best of the southern part of the Big Island. Start the tour early with a delicious breakfast in Hilo, the island's capital, and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey to volcanoes, craters, lava tubes, viewpoints, rainforests, and the ocean coast. Hawaii is an island of magnificent volcanoes, such as Mauna Loa, the world's largest volcano, and Kilauea, the world's most active volcano. You will visit a few spots at the Volcanoes National Park overlooking craters and ethereal landscapes, and have a scenic drive along the Chain of Craters Road, taking you to new lookouts with ocean views, cliffs, and remnants of past lava flows. Lava flowing in the ocean forms fascinating black sand beaches like Punalu'u, where you might meet Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles resting under the sun. Mineral-rich volcanic soil produces high-quality Kona coffee. Stop at Bay View Farm and enjoy a heady freshly roasted aromatic drink. Next, visit the historic Hulihe'e Palace, a former summer home for Hawaiian royalty. Hiking lovers and bird watchers will be delighted to take the Pu'u Huluhulu Trailhead through amazing landscapes. The tour ends in charming downtown Hilo. Note: make sure to have a four-wheel drive (4WD). Take snacks, water, and warm clothes.
