Helicopter Lava and Rainforests Adventure from Hilo

THE COOLEST HELICOPTER RIDE! That's what many of our guests say after taking a ride in our Hughes 500 Helicopter Without Doors over one of the Most Active Volcanoes in the World!  Find out for yourself why the Travel Channel calls this the “hottest helicopter ride on Earth!” After over 35 years of activity, be one of the first to discover out what Kīlauea Volcano has left in the wake of its recent historic eruptive episode.  Witness otherworldly landscapes like the incredible 8-mile river of frozen lava from Fissure 8 to the Pacific Ocean, the newest black sand beaches on earth and enormous craters created by these recent events!

Along the way, view Mauna Loa’s vistas, the beauty of lush Puna rainforests and mesmerizing Hilo waterfalls.  With no windows to shoot through, there is no better way for you to share crystal clear photos and video of your experience than flying one of our Doors-off tours!
