About this Kailua-Kona tour
Experience Hawaii’s beauty and volcanic fury from the top! Travel across blue skies aboard a helicopter and see some of Kailua’s best natural wonders from a great vantage point. Admire lush green rainforests, impressive waterfalls, black sand beaches, and the island’s most active volcano, Kilauea. If you’re seeking a thrilling sightseeing adventure, this tour should be at the top of your list!
Hawaii has many exciting activities and things to do, but this tour is one-of-a-kind because it offers a unique perspective of the island from an entirely different angle. Your flight will take you to the most geologically active environment in Hawaii, known as the Kilauea Volcano. This scorching hot mountain has been continuously erupting since 1983 and you may even catch active lava flows during your experience. Make sure to bring a camera to capture some of the best photo opportunities.
As you travel across the sky, your flight experience will have you hover above black sand beaches, a beautiful occurrence thanks to tiny fragments of lava. Then you’ll view the spectacular Madame Pele’s lava and volcanic badlands before exploring the lush rainforests of the Hamakua coast. The towering sea cliffs open into the dramatically deep and meandering valleys of the Kohala Mountains. Beautiful waterfalls cascade thousands of feet into the rainforest below, where remnants of ancient Hawaiian settlements are still visible. This incredible view will be the perfect ending to your Big Island tour.
