Helicopter - Volcanoes Adventure (from Hilo)

4.8/5

Fly over miles of tropical rainforest on your way to the latest activity of Kilauea Volcano.

Overview

A ride in our Eco-Star Helicopter will give you more than a front row seat for nature’s most spectacular display. Scour Kilauea from the sky in search of lava, and continue towards the crater that was previously Pu‘u ‘O‘o Vent. Fly over Volcanoes National Park and witness the destructive aftermath of the world's most active volcano.

Soar over lush rainforests of the northern part of Hilo, Mauna Loa’s vistas, and the plunging Rainbow Falls. This spectacle will form a moving contrast with the intense power of Kilauea Volcano. Hawaii Big Island helicopter tours are the best way to discover the diversity and beauty of this place.

Volcanoes Tour


Description

The Volcanoes Adventure showcases the story of how Hawaii is inextricably linked to the elements. You will fly over Kilauea, what was the most active volcano on earth, and continue towards the crater that was previously Puu Oo Vent. The windward side also catches enough rain to make Hilo the wettest city in the United States.

All this water fills tunnels that once flowed with lava, creating incredible rivers, pools and waterfalls all over East Hawai'i. View Hilo's lush rainforests, Mauna Loa’s vistas and the plunging Wai'anuenue (Rainbow Falls), so named for the rainbows you can see in the mist when the early morning sunshine hits the water. Choose the Lava & Rainforests Adventure to see the volcanoes and waterfalls inaccessible by any other means!

Know before you book:

  • Tours run between the hours of 8am and 3pm.
  • A valid government-issued photo ID
  • Dress comfortably. It often gets cold in the helicopter at altitude, and passing showers are common in the area.
  • Wear dark clothing to reduce glare for better photos.
