Description of Luxury Hawaii holiday & Volcanoes NP

This luxury 12 day Hawaii holiday and Volcanoes National Park includes time on two islands in the archipelago, Hawaii island itself and the less visited island of Kauai. To Hawaii first, where you’ll stay at Volcano House, the only hotel that lies within Volcanoes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Unsurprisingly, it has wonderful views of the surrounding rainforest all the way to the steam vents on Halema’uma’u crater.

There is so much to explore while you’re here. The park has barren lava rockscapes, rainforest, diverse flora and fauna, craters and two active volcanoes. You might like to cycle around the area, take a guided walk or stride out independently on the hiking trails. You can also drive along Crater Rim Drive to Thurston Lava Tube where you can walk through an ancient lava cave to tropical rainforest.

After Hawaii Island, head over to beautiful Kauai, also known as the Garden Isle. Rainforest, steep cliffs, canyons and waterfalls are amongst the natural wonders you can explore. Spend seven nights at Koa Kea, a small, friendly resort with a relaxing atmosphere on the sunny southern shores of Poipu Beach. The resort is on the waterfront, and in season you might be lucky and spot whales from your deckchair. If you want to be active, explore the Waimea Canyon, surf at nearby Waiohai Beach, hike the trails or sea kayak along Kauai’s barely developed north coast.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Community

Responsible Travel doesn't mean having to compromise on the enjoyment of your trip or the quality of your accommodation. We feel strongly that we should directly benefit the communities we visit whenever possible through sustainable travel, environmental protection and social projects, without sacrificing comfort or character.
We are firmly committed to the principles of ethical travel. Our comprehensive Responsible Practices policy summarises our commitments and actions.
Although the very basis of our ground operations lends itself to the ethos of responsible tourism, this policy re-iterates our commitment to:
• Use locally owned hotels
• Use locally owned ground agents
• Use local guides and drivers
• Promote community tourism projects from homestays to craft shops
• Support charities that work within the destinations that we travel to
• Support carbon reduction projects through Friends of Conservation.
Whilst we recognise that a vital element of any holiday is relaxation, we do try to encourage our clients to be aware of the impact they have on their destinations. For each booking, we provide notes on cultural sensitivities and our local guides brief our clients upon their arrival. We hope this will help to ensure the sustainability of our destinations and improve the quality of our clients' overall experience.
Ethical considerations are also part of our research and development process and we encourage feedback on our practices. Clients are asked to comment and make suggestions on our responsible practices when completing their post-trip questionnaire. In addition to this, as well as visiting destination-based initiatives whilst on their educational trips, our country specialists are encouraged to help continually improve our responsible travel initiatives.
