Hilo Aerial Adventure Tour
Cruise Over Lava & Rainforests
The Hawaiian island chain is an incredible example of what the raw power of volcanic activity can create. No where in the world is that more obvious than on the Big Island, which continues to grow in size every year because of active lava flows. On this tour you will see the elements of both fire and water and how they play different roles in the Big Island’s ecosystem. Flying over Volcanoes National Park you will have the opportunity to see the active volcano Kilauea before heading to the town of Hilo, whose rich rainforests are fed by mountain streams and water gushing through the old lava tubes.

Departs from Kona
Be sure to arrive 20 – 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time at the Hilo Airport to check in for your tour. The goal of this unforgettable aerial adventure is to showcase the Big Island’s diverse ecosystem and educate guests on how this island is inextricably linked to the elements of fire and water. The tour begins by flying over Kilauea and the crater that was previously the Pu’u O’o Vent. Keep your eyes open, because you may catch glimpses of active lava flows.
The second portion of the tour will focus on exploring the rainforest region of the Big Island surrounding Hilo. Between almost daily rainfall and plentiful streams Hilo has been named the wettest city in the US. All of this water creates streams, fills old lava tubes, and produces the most stunning waterfalls in Hawaii. From the cabin of the helicopter you will be able to see the rainbows in the mist of the aptly named Rainbow Falls.
