Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is famous for its renowned volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa.
The Park has distinct climate zones that vary according to elevation.
Behold an active volcano from afar, then explore it up close.
Bike through lava fields along the coast, kayak on a sparkling bay, then finish off the day lounging oceanside beneath the palms.
Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.
While Backroads strives to include routes that are quiet and off the beaten track, the Big Island's rugged topography limits the number of smooth paved roads.
Despite the tropical latitude, it can be rainy and chilly any time of the year and visitors should be prepared for a wide range of weather conditions.
