Travel options: Hawai`i is the Aloha State’s largest, most spectacular and least crowded island, with 2 major airports – Hilo and Kona. Because Hilo (the State’s second largest city) is just a 45 minute drive to Kalani, we recommend that you route through Honolulu to Hilo. If you are not renting a car, Kalani provides a shuttle from/to Hilo airport only. Fee each way is reduced to $40 for conference participants. There are direct flights to Kona, however you must rent a car for the 3 hour drive to/from Kalani, which provides opportunity to view the verdant northern or vast southern land-and-seascapes.
Upon receipt of your email we will send you a confirmation and a packet of information regarding traveling here and your stay, along with further details about the conference program.
