Volcano, Island of Hawaii — 1 night

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Fri): stroll through Native Hawaiian Lava, trek along Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, then take in the natural beauty of Steam Vents, and finally trek along Sulphur Banks. Keep things going the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then shop like a local with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Garden Arts, and finally surround yourself with nature on Epic Lava Tours.

To see photos, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Volcano day trip planning site.

Toronto, Canada to Volcano is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Volcano due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Toronto in September, with highs in Volcano at 35°C and lows at 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Kailua-Kona.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
