10 Days on Hawaii's Big Island

Land of Stunning Contrasts

The Big Island of Hawaii is an island of microclimates. It is possible to experience alpine weather on the 13,800-foot summit of Mauna Kea, arid conditions in the desert and tropical showers in the rainforests. The “Orchid Isle” is known for its beautiful flowers, macadamia nuts and coffee, but you can also experience world-class vanilla, mono-floral honey and distinctive regional cuisine.

Start your Hawaiian vacation with a coffee plantation tour, then get the lay of the land with an exciting helicopter tour over dramatic coastlines and volcanoes dotting the island. Take a road trip to see the most active volcano in the world; go whale-watching in season; play golf on gorgeous courses; visit delightful art galleries; and end your days with relaxing beachside cocktails at sunset.
