Hawaii Island, Hawaii
Hawaii Island is particularly impressive to see that Hawaii was created
by the boundless power of volcanic activity and that it still has an enormous
impact on the archipelago. Black beaches, lava-flooded streets, lava tubes and
the largest volcanoes on earth await you!
Big Island is not only the largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago by far,
but also the largest in the United States. Breathtaking natural beauties, sites
of historical importance, the world famous Hawaiian culture and picturesque
villages inspire every visitor and offer a variety of opportunities to explore
the "Adventure Island of Hawaii". Hawaii's Big Island is home to the world's
tallest mountain, Mauna Kea, and the world's most massive and voluminous
volcano, Maune Loa. In addition, in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park you can
get very close to one of the world's most active volcanoes, the Kilauea, and

dreamlike valleys, hidden waterfalls and mighty lava rock formations on your
adventurous journey. Almost all climate zones and almost every important
ecosystem on earth are represented on the Big Island: tropical rainforest,
mountain lakes, colorful coral reefs, beautiful sandy beaches and lava flows
overgrown with fine ferns. Get involved in an unforgettable adventure on this
On the one hand, Maui delights with magnificent beaches that are
regularly voted among the best in the world. On the other hand, the island also
offers so many adventures and other natural beauties that it would be a shame to
only spend the holiday on the beach - even if it seems so tempting.
Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands and is nicknamed the
"Island of the Valleys". On your first visit, you will understand why Maui is
Maui has been voted number one of the best islands by readers of the renowned
Conde Nast Traveler for 19 years now. Soar high above the clouds on the
Haleakala, watch humpback whales as long as 14 meters pass by, or see countless
beautiful waterfalls as you take on the hairpin bends of the Hana
Highway. Recharge your batteries when you explore the picturesque slopes in the
fertile interior or the beaches that have repeatedly been voted the best in the
world. The magic of Maui is difficult to describe. You have to experience it
Experience Maui and be enchanted by "The Magic Isle".
Oahu is pure contrast: while Honolulu, a slightly different metropolis
awaits you on the south side of the island, the famous North Shore is
the surfer's paradise. On Oahu you can experience the traditional cultural
influences of Hawaii's indigenous people combined with the modernity of a large
American city and explore a wonderful island.
Oahu is the third largest island in the archipelago and impresses with
contrasts between modern luxury and timeless beauty.
To the south is the densely built-up capital and metropolis of Honolulu,
where the life of an American city pulsates. Honolulu with the world-famous
Waikiki beach does not only offer luxurious comfort, shopping and nightlife for
every taste, culture lovers will also get their money's worth. Visit historic
Pearl Harbor or Iolani Palace, home of Hawaii's last two monarchs and the only
official royal residence in the United States.
Two mountain ranges of volcanic origin in the west and east stretch across
the island from north to south. Between the mountains is a large fertile plain
with banana and sugar cane plantations and tropical rainforests in the higher
regions. On the more tranquil northern side of the island you will find rocky
coasts with romantic bays and lonely beaches.
Molokai is considered the traditional and spiritual center of Hawaii. To this
day, the island has retained its pristine and wild character, making it a place
where the Hawaiian culture is truly still alive.
Visit the holy Halawa Valley in the east of the island, where you can admire
temples and waterfalls, and marvel at the world's highest sea cliffs that rise
up to 1,100 meters on the north coast. Or drive to Kamakou Preserve, a primeval
rainforest, and visit the ancient Hawaiian fish ponds in the south.
An unforgettable experience is a trip to Kalaupapa National Historic Park,
which can only be reached on foot or by mule. You will be speechless if you ride
a mule down the Pacific cliffs on the almost 5 km long path to the Kaluapapa
peninsula along the high cliffs. Enjoy the seclusion and tranquility on the
dreamy white beaches in the southeast and west and let your mind wander in the
timeless mood of Molokai.
Explore the untamed and wild beauty of Hawaii's most pristine island.
Kauai is in the north of the island chain and is the oldest island in the
Hawaiian archipelago. Water and wind erosion have worked on the volcanic peaks
for centuries. This created a variety of landscape forms. Today Kauai's north
coast is an enchanting region with many rugged green mountains and lush
pastureland. There are botanical gardens and beautiful beaches as well as the
pretty town of Hanalei and the luxurious town of Princeville.
However, the magnificent highlight is the fan-shaped Na Pali Coast, whose
breathtaking nature will fascinate you on a hike from Kee Beach. To the
southwest are the huge gorges of the Waimea Canyon, which is also called the
Pacific Grand Canyon. To the east, you can canoe out to explore the impressive
landscape and impressive waterfall of the Wailua River, the only navigable river
in Hawaii. Or you can start the day at Poipu Beach and make a detour to the
nearby saltwater geyser Spouting Horn.
