We travel to grow - our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise - sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing is in this guide. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique. Written by two island residents, here is the most extensive and up-to-date guide by far. A land of superlatives, the Big Island is home to Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano that is one of the Earth's highest. Another volcano, Kilauea, is the most active on our planet. The lush tropical forests, the lava flow deserts, the sun-drenched beaches, the cuisine, the fiery sunsets and the idyllic weather are unforgettable. Try snorkeling in a coral garden, swimming with dolphins, night diving with manta rays, hiking to a waterfall, horseback riding through Waimea Canyon, taking a helicopter ride over Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, examining petroglyphs, skiing Mauna Kea, surfing, whale-watching, or learning the hula.
Reviews: "This is one the best guidebooks I've ever read... I could never do everything in this book if I had a year of vacation instead of two weeks. But it'll be fun to try." -- Laura Suraci.
"Anyone who is planning a trip to Hawaii would benefit from this book. I've already been there, but now I can't wait to go back!" -- Jerry Dunlap.
"This book got me totally psyched for my trip to the Big Island. And then it was even better once we were there! We went to so many places that we would never have known about, from bars and restaurants to killer beaches. The writing style was really fun and easy to read. If you're planning a trip to Hawaii, buy this book!"" -- C.A. Kennedy. ""There is so much information packed in here that I wish we had more time for our trip. After reading through the guide, I feel like I'm prepared to spend months on the island trying out something new every day, or just relaxing in great locals' spots that other guides don't cover. This has been a tremendous help in planning our trip."" -- Guidebooklover. ""We have been coming to the Big Island for years. This guide provided us with tons of valuable local insights....This is by far the BEST Big Island guide book I have ever used!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this guide!"" -- Marcia Elvidge. ""I've been to Hawaii several times and used other guidebooks, but this is the best I've ever seen."" -- Coltrane
