The island that gives Hawaii its name is one of the most spectacular and geographically diverse places in the world, with 11 of earth’s 13 climates. Snow-capped mountains, great surfing, an active volcano, and cascading waterfalls make the Big Island a paradise for those wishing to explore some of Mother Nature’s finest work. Travel into another world under the sea where caves and coral reefs are home to colorful tropical fish and more than a few surprises. There aren’t many places where you can witness lava flowing directly from a volcano like you can at Kilauea. Travel into space by heading up Mauna Kea, Hawaii’s tallest mountain at nearly 14,000 feet, and home to the largest telescopes in the world.
