Join Studio Velo this New Year for an amazing adventure on Hawaii’s Big Island. Home to stunning beaches, soaring volcanos and nine climactic zones in between, we will experience Hawai’i’s incredible diversity as we circumnavigate much of the island. Highlights include riding the famed Ironman road course, climbing up through Volcano National Park, stopping for a beachside lunch of fresh tuna poke, ascending the lush Kohala mountains, descending through the Kaʻū desert, snorkeling, swimming and hopefully catch a glimpse of the green sea turtles.
As with our recent sojourns to Corsica and Japan, the hallmarks of this trip will include our intimate knowledge of the backroads, the delightful restaurants and cozy inns, an understanding of the local ways and rhythms, and most important, trip leadership and staff that have a passion for the place and a desire to deliver an outstanding experience for our guests. Come join us and ring in the New Year with some very special cycling Aloha!
