Aloha! Get ready for warmer temperatures as you join Gerry Van Kooten, geologist and volcano expert, on CALL/CAA’s expedition to Hawaii. Made up of 132 volcanic islands, Hawaii is the world’s largest island chain. On this tour, you’ll visit three of the seven inhabited Hawaiian islands: Hawaii (also known as the Big Island), Kauai, and Oahu. This adventure combines volcanic and cultural exploration with not-to-miss Hawaiian sightseeing. You’ll spend multiple days in and around Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

At Kilauea, we will experience the majestry of volcanoes and understand how volcanic landscapes are formed. We will walk on Hawaii’s youngest lava flow, then later see Hawaii’s oldest deeply weathered rocks on Kaui as we explore Waimea Canyon and the North Shore.

You will also see green and black sand beaches, ancient temples, a coffee plantation, and Hawaii’s charming smaller towns like Kona and Hilo. The itinerary also includes waterfalls, a wildlife refuge, and botanical gardens. If this isn’t enough, there will be free time to enjoy the sunshine, to relax on a beach, or go snorkeling. Finally, your trip ends with a visit to the Pearl Harbor WWII Memorial.
