Experience Big Island Hawaii’s majestic nature in a small guided tour.

Welcome to the dynamic Hawaii island! An island of fire and ice that reminds us daily that nothing is permanent and that there is always time to slow down and take in the beauty of a Kona Sunset.

We like to say that Big Island is for the adventurous! For those unique travelers who crave the authentic and dare to seek out the tallest mountains in the world, volcano craters, hidden lava tubes, black sand beaches, and Hawaii’s best waterfalls. Our company has been the premier Big Island Hawaii tour service for over 25 years. We know this island inside and out and love to share it with our guests. What continues to bring travelers back to Hawaii Forest & Trail is our team of highly knowledgeable Interpretive Guides, our unparalleled access to private land and our intimate small group tour sizes. All that, paired with all the comforts you’d expect from a first class tour company, our experiences are designed to keep you well-fed, comfortable and captivated.   

We invite you to be our guest and experience the best spots in Hawaii Nei!

Kohala Waterfalls

Great way to spend a day on Big Island! Our guide, Mark, was incredible. He went above and beyond to make the experience the best it could be for everyone in our group. Mark was able to accommodate the needs of everyone in the group including the very young child and did so in a fun, inclusive and informative way.He gave us a lot of interesting information about the area and its history as the waterfalls that you go to are on private land… All in all, a fantastic way to spend a day exploring the Big Island of Hawaii.

Volcano Unveiled

Volcano Unveiled delivers! This trip was so rich visually, educationally and socially! Trip leader, Ashley, created a warm, fun environment and led us in conversations about the natural history of Hawaii, the volcanoes, its flora and fauna and cultural history ...The customer service was exemplary from my first phone conversation with them until I stepped out of the van at the end of the day… This organization and their employees are a class act.

Mauna Kea Summit And Stars

Jeff was our tour guide. I’ve never known anyone so knowledgeable on virtually any question that was thrown his way. Dinner was delicious, parkas and gloves were greatly appreciated, as was the hot cocoa and brownies. Then getting to look through the telescope to see the rings on Saturn, the moon, the dumbbell nebulae, wow! … Mahalo!

Endangered Native Habitats

If you live in Hawaii and you haven’t tried the Hawaii Trail and Forest Tours, I dare to ask you- what are you waiting for! The best! I had an amazing time with Garry- my tour guide with the Bulgarian neighbors 🙂 He is so knowledgeable that in order for me to learn his craft it would take me at least 18 years. Garry, thank you for showing me the I’iwi birds and many others... You were truly an inspiration for me and this tour enriched me beyond words can tell! Thank you!

Hidden Craters

Excellent tour of Hualalai Craters and a lava tube! Our guide, Eric, was terrific. We had a small tour... We went through 3 private gates to get to areas not available to the general public. Eric pointed out the different plants and we even ate some berries. We saw a herd of sheep running up the mountain! Eric was very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history... Hawaiian Geology and plants. Eric was attentive to our condition and we took breaks when we got tired. The hike is easy to moderate, as advertised
