Know More about this tour

Make your way to Kona International Airport to meet your expert pilot and board your luxury Bell 407 helicopter. At liftoff, soak up the views afforded by extra-large sliding windows. Two-way radio communication allows you to hear informative commentary from your pilot and to ask any questions about the sights you see as you fly.

En route to Volcanoes National Park, your pilot takes you over the world-famous Kona coffee growing region and past three towering volcanoes: Huallai, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. As you fly over the national park, catch a glimpse of its most famous volcano, Kilauea. Your pilot scopes out the best volcanic activity that day, often a scene only on view from the air.

After taking in the park from above, get a ground-level view when you touch down in Hilo. Your group is joined by an expert forest and trail guide for a drive to Volcanoes National Park to explore on foot and by coach. Your guide shares facts about the geologic and natural history of the park on easy walks of up to two miles. View remarkable volcanic formations and diverse geography as you walk through native rainforest and visit the Thurston Lava Tube, a long hollow formation created by flowing lava. Admire the Kilauea volcano, one of the worlds most active volcanoes that has been regularly erupting since 1983. It's also the legendary home of Hawaiian fire goddess Pele.

Enjoy a picnic lunch at a scenic spot during your time in the park. On the leisurely return flight to Kona, your pilot flies over rugged valleys and the remote coastline for stunning views of lava flows, waterfalls, and the white and black sand beaches of the Pololu Valley and Kawaihae. Return to Kona Airport in time to enjoy the sunset at the end of your tour.
