Holidays and Honeymoons in Hawaii
Welcome to paradise for that is what the word "Hawaii" means; situated 2000 miles out in the Pacific with a year-round warm, sub-tropical climate, friendly outgoing people, fascinating culture, some of world's most wondrous scenery and those famous beautiful Hawaii beaches, who are we to argue? Bon Voyage are delighted to offer a wide selection of Hawaii holidays ranging from escorted tours to fully flexible tailor made trips.
Hawaii Island-hopping Holidays
Each Island of Hawaii has it's own unique characteristics. We would encourage you to Island-Hop and experience at least two during your holidays to Hawaii. Inter island travel is extremely reasonable (average flights around £40 pp) plus you'll get a birds eye view of Hawaii's magnificent valleys, mountains, waterfalls and volcanoes. Have your camera ready these aren't just flights, they're mini adventures!
One point to emphasise (and I hope we aren't telling you how to suck eggs!) - Hawaii is no weekend break destination. It is a full five and a half hour flight from either Los Angeles or San Francisco and minimum flying time from London to the Hawaiian islands is over 17 hours.
Hence, the majority of our clients choose to break their journey, either on the outward or the return leg of their Hawaii holidays. As many airlines incorporate free mainland USA stopovers en route to Hawaii, this is not only affordable but also a great way to see other parts of the United States of America.
Over the years we've included the usual San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles as stopovers on our Hawaii Holidays, (which all are fabulous destinations) but we've found travellers have become more adventurous and are demanding more options. So let your imagination run wild...we do! Allow us to tailor-make your Hawaii holiday plans with slightly unconventional stopovers.
Spend a few days at the mighty Grand Canyon..ride with the cowboys on a ranch in Texas..go bear watching on Vancouver Island..cruise the Maid of the Mist beneath Niagara Falls..tour Graceland & visit B B Kings..go line dancing in Nashville..view the Presidents at Mount Rushmore..experience the incredible New England Fall -you name it, we can make it happen...!
That's enough of getting there, what about when you are actually there!
The Islands of Hawaii are the most isolated landmass in the world, wildly romantic, with wondrous scenery and many secluded areas to explore. Each Island is easy to see by car, with very little traffic, (Honolulu is the exception here) not great distances to travel, well sign posted roads and an incredible view around each and every bend.
Don't be fooled into thinking each of the islands are the same,
. Speak to our team of experts who will explain the differences between the islands and match you to the ones that are best for your desires. Better still, visit them all!
We have been selling Hawaii holidays for nearly 30 years and can offer you a wide choice of accommodation from friendly 3 stars, swish 4 stars to stunning 5 star resorts. We've been asked many times about "all-inclusive" style Hawaii holiday resorts, they don't exist here. This isn't the Caribbean, it's a hundred times more interesting! The Islanders want you to explore and experience their fascinating culture, mix with the locals and dine in a diverse and unique surroundings.
Another way to enjoy a Hawaii holiday is on Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America. This tropical cruise sails every Saturday from Honolulu. NCL have pioneered the exciting concept of Freestyle Cruising..dine when you want, with whom you want and wear what you want (within reason!) If you aren't the type of person who would normally consider a cruise...think again, this is laidback informal approach to cruising!.

You may recognise Kauai even if you have never visited. The spectacular verdant scenery has appeared in South Pacific, Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Arc and more than 60 other films. Formed by the eruption of the now dormant Mt Waialeale, there's a definite pre-historic feel about the wild, impenetrable interior and rugged coast.
Twice as large as all the other islands combined, Hawaii covers over 4,000 sq miles, which makes it roughly half the size of Wales. Often called the Big Island, it's also the most geographically diverse
Hawaii's most enticing island, Lanai has the feeling of a private island. That is hardly suprising as the island is 98% owned by the Lanai Company of Dole Pineapple fame.

Things to see and do
Hawaii is a destination really geared towards stargazing; boasting 90% clear nights and a total of 13 large telescopes on the summit of Mauna Kea alone. The surrounding ocean cuts down on artificial light pollution and leads to better, more stable stargazing conditions.
Kaua’i has served as a location for the filming of more than 70 movies and TV productions over the past half-century. Moviegoers this year will see the island’s beautiful scenery in the major motion picture Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides.
The 1953 classic has probably the most famous beach scene in film history - Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr's iconic passionate embrace in the crashing surf of Halona Beach Cove.
